James d’Entremont received his B.A. from Loyola University in New Orleans in 1994 and his J.D. from the University of Kentucky College of Law in 1998.
Mr. d’Entremont has a diverse practice representing individuals and businesses in complex litigation throughout Louisiana, with concentrations in medical malpractice, professional liability, product liability, personal injury, commercial litigation and insurance coverage/bad faith litigation. He is admitted before all Louisiana state and federal courts and has jury trial experience at both the state and federal court levels as well as extensive appellate experience including appearing and arguing before the Louisiana Supreme Court.
Mr. d’Entremont is also a frequent speaker and author on legal issues. His published works have appeared in a variety of local and national legal publications and been cited in legal treatises including THE LAW OF TOXIC TORTS, PROOF OF FACTS 3d and TRIALS. He has spoken before local, national and international audiences on a wide range of topics including insurance bad faith, product liability, medical malpractice, jury trial presentation, unique theories of liability and liability risks associated with construction and building practices.
Prior to becoming a plaintiffs-only litigator in 2011, Mr. d’Entremont was a litigator with a large regional law firm with offices throughout the Gulf Coast and London, England where he represented domestic and international clients in a wide variety of matters, often acting as defense counsel in the same types of cases that he now pursues on behalf of the firm’s clients. During this time, he also served on the board of directors of the New Orleans Association of Defense Counsel (2006-2008). This experience provides him with a unique perspective when facing industry and professional defendants in his current practice.
Mr. d’Entremont lives in Baton Rouge with his wife, Michelle, both of whom are active in various community organizations. Among the organizations that they support are the Baton Rouge Bar Association’s Summer Youth Legal Institute, a summer program started in 2014 for Gardere-area youth ages 12 to 17 to work on their analytical and presentation skills, culminating in a “mock trial” at the end of the program, the Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center, a local facility and organization providing therapy and services to help children heal from abuse, violent crime and trauma, and USGBC-Louisiana, a non-profit organization promoting sustainable development in Louisiana, for which James is a former board member.
