Following graduation from Loyola Law School in New Orleans in 1990, Price McNamara served as a Federal Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable John M Shaw, Chief Judge, United States District Court Western District of Louisiana, until 1991. He then spent years as an insurance company attorney, defending automobile and truck insurers as well as industrial offshore vessel owners, offshore drilling contractors and their insurers against a broad range of personal injury and other insurance disputes with the law firm of Hailey, McNamara, Hall, Larmann & Papale in Metairie, while earning an advanced masters law degree in Environmental Law from Tulane Law School in New Orleans at night.
In 1995, Mr. McNamara left the insurance and injury defense practice to serve two years representing the State of Louisiana as a felony trial division prosecutor.
In 1995, Mr. McNamara founded the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara, and began putting his past experience to work for the injured and disabled clients he now represents against the insurance companies in personal injury and long term disability and other insurance disputes in both federal and state courts. While this forms the bulk of his practice, practice areas include: personal injury, ERISA, long term disability, fire, and other insurance claims, maritime, offshore, and Jones Act workers’ compensation (including state and longshore and harbor workers’ compensation act), contract and business litigation, wills, successions and estates, federal and state court criminal defense.
Mr. McNamara’s work philosophy is to limit the number of cases he handles at any given time so he can dedicate the time necessary to fully educate each client on the legal process and ensure that the client understands his or her own claim completely. That way, the client understands exactly what will happen next and why, making the entire process less stressful because the client is fully informed. When Mr. McNamara accepts a case, he is dedicated to devoting the time and resources required to win it.
