Forrest Cressy James About Us Hero Image





Our firm is taking legal care to a new level. Find out why Louisiana is ditching the billboard lawyers, joining the FCJ team.

We wanted to help people like our friends and family, who need support, but don't know how to get it. We wanted to provide people with the quality legal care they deserve, while also helping them better understand their rights, and work together to find the best available solutions.


That's why we formed Forrest, Cressy James. We're still committed to that mission to this day. If you are in need of legal counsel or don't know what your next steps are, please get in touch. We'd love to assist in any way we can!"

"Nick, Eliza and myself have been working together as teammates and colleagues since 2010. The three of us quickly connected over our approach to practicing law and what we want to see in a law firm. Needing to take legal action can be stressful and overwhelming. Many of the people we know have reservations about calling a lawyer, and don't know where to begin if they are having legal issues.


We didn't want to work for a turn-and-burn, ambulance chasing law firm. We didn't want to get a quick check for our clients and then drop them for the next case. 

Since 2016, Forrest, Cressy & James has been serving Louisiana with proven success. We are consistent, patient and professional, and give each new case our undivided attention. We value honesty and transparency, and we always take the time to walk you through each step of the process.


With offices in New Orleans & St. Tammany Parish, and a track record of winning across the state, we're helping our clients overcome their most complex legal issues. We are waiting for your call.
