History

Formed in 1987 as Laborde & Neuner, the firm quickly established a reputation as one of the best maritime defense firms in Acadiana. Founding partner, Frank X Neuner, had a personal vision to provide contributions to the legal profession and the community, which helped shape the firm’s destiny. Over the next 25 years, the firm grew into a full team of dedicated partners. Since that time, specifically chosen associate attorneys with in-depth experience in a broad range of practice areas accommodated an ever-growing roster of clients.

In 2013, senior partner James L. Pate, who had been with the firm for over 25 years alongside Frank, was brought forth as a named partner. Under the new name, NeunerPate, and with the addition offices in New Orleans, the firm continues its mission of service, with a vision toward growth and expansion. Today, the attorneys of NeunerPate continue to uphold a reputation for litigation prowess, as well as for exhibiting the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in service to their profession and community.
