Representing Insurance Companies in Louisiana, Across the Country and Around the Globe

Stephenson, Chávarri & Dawson, LLC, has a well-developed and successful insurance defense practice representing insurance companies in Louisiana, across the United States and in foreign countries. Typically, when the insured party speaks Spanish or French, the insurance company has to pay a translator or interpreter to translate oral or written statements, depositions and examinations under oath.

At our firm translation and interpretation is a primary aspect of the legal services we provide to our insurance company clients. Because some of our lawyers are bilingual in English and Spanish, or French and English, we can represent Spanish-speaking and French-speaking insureds much more effectively. We also provide bilingual insurance defense services in International insurance claims.

One of our attorneys is a U.S. court-certified translator. Insurance companies and other litigants frequently retain our firm to translate court-related documents, statements and testimony. The benefits of retaining a certified translator, who is also an experienced attorney, are self-evident. All of our bilingual attorneys are invaluable in a legal setting because of the legal—as well as linguistic—knowledge they bring to any proceeding.
