In 1988-89, James “Jim” Gibson began handling legal malpractice cases for his insurance clients. At that time, no law dedicated to attorney malpractice existed in Louisiana. Instead, litigants contorted existing negligence and contract law to apply in a professional malpractice setting. The resulting contradictory case law created a “wild west” atmosphere that challenged the best litigators.

In 1990, the Louisiana State Legislature passed statutes governing the timing and venue of professional liability suits against lawyers, accountants and insurance agents. When complaints against lawyers or judges were filed, the respondents routinely requested attorney Jim Gibson to defend them.

Co-founders of Gibson Law Partners, LLC, Jim and Charles “Chuck” Kreamer began working together in 1994 in the professional liability arena. For nearly three decades, they have provided creative and aggressive trial, appellate and mediation counsel in cases involving lawyers, accountants and other licensed professionals.

As commercial and probate litigation cases have become more complex, Jim and Chuck founded Gibson Law Partners, LLC, in Lafayette. They added a team of lawyers to assist with personal injury and commercial litigation matters, in addition to their previous work resolving probate and professional civil litigation matters. Our team consists of individuals with a broad range of knowledge, backgrounds and experience. This collective effort contributes to providing exceptional legal skill and dedication to getting the best results for their clients.
