About Me

I am Rusty Savoie, attorney at law. I was born and raised in Larose, Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, and attended both college and law school in the state. This is home for me, and I want to help those in the region get the legal assistance they need. I understand the pressures that you are facing in your workers' compensation case, and you can trust me to handle your claims with care and compassion.

Prior to starting my own firm, I was a partner at a large law firm in New Orleans, after which I practiced with a smaller defense firm handling exclusively workers' compensation cases on behalf of insurers and employers.  I then took a position as Deputy General Counsel for a large, international corporation headquartered in Covington managing their litigation throughout the country.   After more than a decade defending insurance companies and employers, I opened my own practice in Covington and Houma focusing on defending the rights of employees injured on the job.

I know first hand how defense firms and employers try to keep injured employees from receiving the benefits they are legally entitled to. I opened my law office in order to focus my time on helping injured workers.

I have received many awards and accolades since I started practicing in 1997. I am AV Preeminent* peer review rated through Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating, and have also been named as one of the Top Lawyers in the area by New Orleans Magazine and the Times-Picayune.  Recently the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys named me on the top 10 attorneys in Louisiana based on client satisfaction, an honor I was proud to receive and worked very hard for.

At my firm, you will work directly with me at all stages of your case. I personally will meet with you during our initial consultation, and will walk you through the options that are presently available to you. I want you to feel confident that you are in control of your case, and as your lawyer, I will be there to act as your guide throughout the process.

I am a strong advocate for my clients. I will not let the insurance company push you around. I will aggressively represent your position and protect your best interests. If your case requires a hearing or an appeal of a previous decision, I am ready to fight for you.
