At the start of 2023, there has been changes in the workers' compensation court system. The workers' comp court system in Louisiana has two new judges. One is Denise Lee in Baton Rouge, and the other one is Heather Fairchild in St. Tammany and Jefferson Parish. Both of these judges were former mediators with the Louisiana Workforce Commission and have years of experience in resolving workers' compensation claims. As a new judge, they will work hard to make sure that claims are resolved efficiently and in a just manner.
The Schwartz Law Firm has attended many mediations with these two judges in the past and is happy that they are now judges for workers' compensation cases. If you have any questions about worker's compensation and how things are handled in the court system, such as the schedulings of trials, of motions, and bringing the matter to court as soon as possible, please call the Schwartz Law Firm today in Metairie, New Orleans and Baton Rouge!
