Baton Rouge Personal Injury Attorney
At the law office of G. Stephen Covert, I have more than 30 years of practice experience. On occasion, I operate as a joint venture on personal injury cases with attorney Walter L. Smith who I have enjoyed working with for the past 25 years, combining our considerable skill, knowledge, experience and resources to help you get the results you want. We don't delegate your case to an inexperienced associate or a staff member, but work directly with you throughout the legal process. We place a premium on accessibility and will promptly return your calls or e-mails, if we are working with other clients.
I offer comprehensive counsel to people in Louisiana who have legal concerns involving:
- Criminal charges — I handle all matters related to the defense of criminal charges, carefully gathering and assessing all relevant evidence, preparing and filing all necessary documentation and acting as your advocate in all hearings or proceedings, from arraignment to plea negotiations to trial. I defend people charged with misdemeanors and minor felonies such as DWI/DUI, drug crimes, domestic violence, weapons offenses, theft crimes and traffic offenses.
- A personal injury claim — I focus exclusively on the rights of injured people, handling claims involving motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-falls, dog bites, construction accidents and work-related injuries. I take cases involving serious and catastrophic loss such as burns, brain or spinal cord injury, broken bones and amputation or loss of limb. I also represent surviving family members in wrongful death actions.
