Introduction:

Steven began his legal career as an attorney for a very prominent and well respected law firm in Gonzales, Louisiana. It was there, that Steven learned to treat every client as a person, and not just another file. This same concept can be seen by the personal attention each and every client receives at the Tureau Law Firm, which Steven opened in 2011. It is under that same ideology, that Steven fights for his clients in and outside of the courtroom. Steven's main focus areas of practice are Personal Injury, Automobile Accidents, 18 wheeler crashes, and Maritime Law. He also fights for clients who are involved in divorce, child custody, and support cases. In addition to maintaining his private practice, Steven serves as an Assistant District Attorney for the 23rd Judicial District, where he prosecutes both misdemeanor an felony cases.

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
Prior to becoming a prosecutor for the District Attorney's Office, Steven represented clients in the criminal arena. In the first jury trial of his career, Steven successfully represented a client who was charged with a serious felony offense, and was facing 15 years in prison. The jury came back with a lesser and included verdict of 5 years. In the second jury trial of his career, his client admitted to having shot the victim, yet Steven skillfully convinced 11 out of 12 jurors that his client was not guilty of 2nd degree murder. The jury returned a "Not Guilty" verdict after only 3 hours of deliberation. Steven's attention is now focused on prosecuting those who have violated the law, and has sent countless criminals to jail. In his civil practice, Steven takes on the insurance companies to ensure his clients receive each and every penny they deserve. He currently represents clients against national and local insurance companies.

How did you build a successful practice?
The Tureau Law Firm has grown every year because of Steven's attention to detail and dedication to personal service for each client.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Confidence in the attorney's work and knowledge of the type of case are the two most important things to consider when hiring an attorney.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Any competent attorney should have a working knowledge of the legal process as a whole, and how to accomplish the goal of the client in the most efficient and effective way possible. Generally, a local attorney will have more personal knowledge of local judges and the probability of how he or she will rule on certain issues. It is far more likely that a local attorney has practiced in front of the judge assigned to your case, as opposed to an out of town attorney who has never practiced in your jurisdiction.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Tureau Law Firm does offer free in person consultations on all injury cases. If you have been injured in a car accident, 18-wheeler wreck, boating accident, slip and fall, or other accident, call us today to set up a free consultation.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
Admittedly, Steven is a fairly young attorney. While some may see this as a downfall, Steven embraces it. Steven energetically tackles cases head-on with a sense of purpose. He is dedicated to achieving the best result for his clients.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
A satisfied client who has been fully compensated for suffering at the hands of another.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
While Steven's true passion is fighting for client's in court, in his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons, as well as hunting and fishing.

Are you involved in your community?
As a token of appreciation for the trust client's instill in Steven, he continuously gives back to his community. Steven has served on the Board of Directors for Volunteer Ascension, the local committee for Ducks Unlimited, Delta Waterfowl, and the National Wild Turkey Federation. Steven is a top level sponsor for both the St. Theresa fair and the St. John Fair every year. He also donates to the St. Theresa food bank in December each year.
