Louisiana Personal Injury Lawyers

We Have the Experience to Get Results

While the law firm of Goforth & Lilley was established in 2001, our attorneys have been serving clients in Lafayette and the surrounding parts of Louisiana for much longer.

William H. "Bill" Goforth and W. Alan "Al" Lilley both began practicing law in 1982. They share a commitment to providing honest and dedicated legal representation and have attained a AV-rating from the Martindale Hubbell peer-review rating process. That commitment has earned them a wide range of accolades. Bill has also been:

  • Designated as a Fellow of the National College of Advocacy
  • Selected as one of Louisiana's Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the American Trial Lawyer's Association
  • Listed by Louisiana's SuperLawyers magazine
  • Board Certified in Civil Trial Advocacy
  • Selected for membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum

Our Commitment to Honest Legal Representation and Respect for Our Clients

Honesty means a lot to us. We urge our clients to be honest when communicating with us about the legal issues they need help with. We believe they have the right to honest guidance from us. Sometimes, that means we have to give bad news along with good news. Our belief is that it is better to get all of the important information up front rather than be surprised at the end of the case.

Our Commitment to Dedicated Legal Representation

We don't accept cases if we wouldn't be comfortable preparing or presenting that case to a judge or jury. In other words, we don't accept nuisance cases. We dedicate ourselves to every case we handle, whether it involves a business law matter, or a personal injury or wrongful death claim, such as a car accident or truck accident.

Our dedication means that we are willing to go the distance in every case. We are litigators who are not afraid to take cases to trial. If the insurance companies don't know this about us from our reputation, we make it clear to them. In short, if they do not give us what you want, we will take them to court.

Legal Representation With Personal Attention

We care about our clients. When you come to us with a personal injury or wrongful death claim, a business law matter or any other legal issue, you can be certain that we will listen to you. We pride ourselves on providing guidance tailored to our clients' needs.
