Faircloth Melton Sobel & Bash, LLC provides the high quality and broad range of legal representation associated with large firms, but with the personal service and efficiency of a small firm.  The firm is primarily focused on governmental law and litigation, commercial litigation, medical malpractice defense litigation, insurance defense litigation, and environmental law and litigation.  From offices in Alexandria and Baton Rouge, Faircloth Melton Sobel & Bash represents clients on both sides of the bar in state and federal courts, regulatory proceedings, arbitrations, mediations, and legislative settings.  It proudly includes attorneys with the highest Martindale Hubbell rating (A-V "Preeminent"), certifications by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, honorary distinction by the Litigation Counsel of America (representing one-half of one percent of American lawyers), Super Lawyers and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and is listed with Best's Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys.


The depth of the firm's experience and resources is reflected in its frequent involvement in complex and high-profile legal disputes, such as representing the Office of the Governor and the Attorney General in the coordination and negotiation of the Deepwater Horizon Litigation -- the most complex environmental litigation in history, representing an alliance of landowners and oil and gas companies to revise the statutory scheme providing for remediation of conditions caused by decades-old exploration and production activities, litigating novel high-stakes commercial disputes and class actions, and defending claims involving catastrophic accidents and injuries.

Faircloth Melton Sobel & Bash handles every aspect of legal representation -- from the inception of the case through mediation and appeals.  We also pride ourselves on building strong relationships with our clients by providing personalized service and attention to detail.  Every client and every case are important to us, and it shows in the level of individual attention that we strive to provide.
