Insurance law is the practice of law concerning insurance policies and claims. If you are in need of a local New Orleans insurance law attorney please contact us today. We have extensive experience in insurance law including many issues that are crucially important to New Orleans and Louisiana residents such as hurricane insurance.
Insurance law is generally composed of two categories:
- insurance claims (including personal and commercial)
- the regulation of the insurance industry and companies
Insurance claims take many forms and the attorneys of Greenberg & LaPeyronnie, LLC have represented and litigated many and various aspects of these claims including:
Making a claim or filing suit. An individual’s usual experience in insurance claims is the making of a claim against the insurance company of an individual or company who has injured our client (and sometimes our client’s own insurance company).
Defense against a claim or suit. In situations where our clients have been sued, we have reviewed our client’s own insurance policy and have been successful in having our client’s own insurance company pay for the client’s legal representation, thus relieving our client of the cost of hiring defense counsel.
Life insurance claims. In other situations, we have assisted clients who had claims for life insurance proceeds due to the death of a loved one when the claim for policy benefits was denied. We have done this by filing lawsuits in both state and federal courts. Due to these efforts, the insurance companies retracted their denials and paid death benefits to our clients.

Hurricane Insurance Claims – Critical to life in the New Orleans area
Hurricane damage is one of the most heated issues for those of us living in the Gulf Coast area. A local New Orleans insurance law attorney can be a tremendous asset in protecting your rights and helping restore what you have lost in the event of a hurricane.
A recent example from one of our clients:
The attorneys of Greenberg & LaPeyronnie, LLC assisted its client in preparing and submitting an insurance claim and demand for coverage after the client suffered a rather large loss of business income due to Hurricane Katrina. Once the insurance company denied this claim, the attorneys of Greenberg & LaPeyronnie, LLC successfully litigated its client’s loss of business income claim receiving a unanimous vote of the jury which awarded our client the entire amount sought for loss of business income and statutory penalties.
