By submitting this lawyer request, I confirm I have read and agree to the Consent to Receive Messages, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy
Bradford Felder is a family law specialist, certified by the Louisiana Board of Legal Specialization who handles all types of family law matters at both the trial and appellate levels.

Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

Mr. Felder took over the handling of a custody matter shortly before trial commenced. After a nearly six-week custody trial involving experts from all over the country retained before he was involved in the case, the trial court judge ruled in favor of the father in accordance with the recommendations of the nationally renowned expert requiring the child to move from Louisiana to Texas. Mr. Felder drafted and argued the appeal which reversed the trial court's judgment in its entirety and placed the child back in the primary custody of the mother in Louisiana. The decision is reported at Schneider v. Schneider, 115 So.3d 1279 (La.App. 3 Cir. 6/20/13).

How did you build a successful practice?

Mr. Felder is very responsive, easily accessible, and fiercely protective of his client's interests. His practice has grown as a result almost exclusively by word of mouth.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Honesty and integrity first. Aggressiveness tempered with a willingness to reach reasonable compromise. And when children are involved, someone who will strive to put the children's best interests above everything else.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

There are only two family law judges and four hearing officers in this three-parish judicial district. Familiarity and reputation with the judiciary is important. Moreover, the culture of Lafayette (recently recognized in a study reported by the Wall Street Journal as the happiest city in the nation) is very unique.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

experience, track record, community support] Mr. Felder is one of only a few Board Certified Family Law Specialists in Lafayette, and one of only two family law attorneys recognized as a SuperLawyer.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Successfully ending conflict between parents and helping them to work together in the best interest of their children.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

Mr. Felder enjoys reading, cooking and travel.

Are you involved in your community?

Mr. Felder is Chairman-elect of the Board of Trustees for Ascension Episcopal School and is very involved in his church, Ascension Episcopal Church. He was the assistant coach of his daughter's league softball team this spring. He has been recognized nearly annually for many years as an outstanding attorney for pro bono service to the indigent.

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

Uninsured Motorist Coverage: Don’t Leave Home Without (Plenty) Of It
While most people know that they must carry liability insurance coverage in California or risk losing their driving privilege, few people realize that while liability insurance protects you in cases where you are at fault, it provides you no benefit where, as is often the case, you are the victim of somebody’s else’s negligence. The coverage that will provide you with invaluable protection and in an amount you choose to purchase, is Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage.
Insurance Companies In the Driver’s Seat: How to Level the Playing Field And Improve Your Chances Of Recovering The Damages To Which You Are Entitled
In years past people injured in accidents could rely on insurance companies making reasonable offers for the losses they sustained. As the saying goes, those days are gone! In the last few years the long standing rights of injured people to receive fair compensation for their losses including compensation for their medical expenses, loss of earnings and for the pain and suffering they experienced have been severely limited by our Courts and a series of decisions that have diminished the rights of victims and emboldened the insurance companies to make offers of settlement that are not merely inadequate but often insulting.
Preserving Evidence After An Accident
When accidents occur the first consideration, after insuring that the injured are given appropriate care and medical attention, should be the preservation of accident scene details that may one day become critical in determining the rights of the victims. While it would be nice to know that those who cause accidents are honest, caring individuals who want to own up to their responsibilities and insure that those they hurt are properly compensated, most, even those who may admit fault at the scene, turn out to be anything but truthful after they speak with their insurance company or the lawyers they hire. Regrettably, and with ever increasing frequency, insurance companies persuade their insured’s to not admit anything but rather to consider their future insurance premiums when making statements or giving their depositions. Similarly, the lawyers hired by the insurance companies, especially those who are employed as “house counsel” are all too often more interested in saving their employer/insurance company money and less interested in seeing justice done or the having the truth come out.
