The Firm


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, and insurance defense litigation, and has developed a reputation for handling difficult and novel legal issues in a variety of other practice areas, including constitutional law, environmental law, professional liability, civil rights, education, construction, and healthcare.  From offices in Alexandria and Baton Rouge, the firm provides legal services to our clients on a statewide basis.  The firm represents individuals, businesses, municipalities, and governmental agencies and officials on both sides of the bar in state and federal courts, regulatory proceedings, arbitrations, mediations, and legislative settings.  In addition to having Martindale A-V rated attorneys, the firm is listed with Best’s Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys, which is a testament to the quality of the legal representation it provides.

The depth of the firm’s experience and resources is reflected in its involvement in many high-profile legal disputes, such as representing the Governor and the Attorney General in the coordination and management of claims by the State arising from the Deepwater Horizon Disaster, 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, and representing local governmental entities in high profile municipal liability trials.  The firm handles every aspect of legal representation for our clients—from the inception of the case through termination 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 is important to us, and it shows in the level of individual attention that we strive to provide.

Whether discretely helping private clients avoid litigation or managing a high-profile matter involving complex legal issues and public personalities, Faircloth Melton Sobel & Bash is committed to developing the most thoughtful legal arguments and strategies for its clients.
