Early in his legal career, Jonathan Tweedy spent two years as a clerk with the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Administrative Law Judges, gaining invaluable exposure to federal workers’ compensation, federal employment law, Jones Act and whistleblower claims and learning how to navigate such cases from an insider’s perspective.
Since then, he has established a reputation as one of Louisiana’s top-rated attorneys. His areas of specialization include civil litigation, maritime and personal injury cases, the Defense Base Act, and the Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act. His efficient and dexterous handling of claims has produced significant monetary relief for his clients.
He doesn’t let practice areas define him, though. His indefatigable approach to cases and ability to quickly get to their cores has resulted in scores of dedicated clients turning to him for almost any legal issue they encounter.
He exhibits the kind of dedication that used to be associated with family doctors — he will go wherever cases take him and answer client calls whenever they need him. His clients know he will work tirelessly on their behalf.
He is often brought into cases that are considered unusually challenging. He is able to quickly diagnose the issues and the risks, and the thoroughness of his research and investigatory skills enable him to find what others tend to miss.
He keeps clients informed at every turn, emphasizing clarity and transparency and his billing reflects extraordinary efficiency. His track record, skill and work ethic have taught him to expect good results; the trust and repeat business his clients bestow upon him show it is also the reality.
