  • Keep fighting the Good Fight. I give my absolute highest recommendation!
    Upon meeting with Mr. Sudduth for the first time, it was very obvious to me that he was well experienced in his areas of practice. He was very communicative, made himself available to address any concerns or needs and was extremely attentive to the details of my case. As thorough, goal-oriented, hard-working and determined as he and his staff were, one attribute stood out among the rest-they genuinely cared about me and my family. This was my first (and hopefully last) experience dealing with this type of litigation and the trauma it caused us, but James was there every step of the way and he fought for me; he fought for a resolution to the injustice I suffered. He cut straight through all of the nonsense and helped change workplace culture to make it a better place to work for everyone. For that, I am extremely grateful and proud that I made the choice to hire him as my attorney. I pray that many blessings come to the Sudduth and Associates team—Keep fighting the Good Fight. I give my absolute highest recommendation!

  • If having someone on your side that gives a 110% and delivers a quality product is important, then James Sudduth III comes with my highest personal recommendation.

    Having led a Billion Dollar Project, retiring from the Military and retiring as a Sr. Federal Government Employee, you might say “I have high standards for selecting an Attorney”.

    I approached James with my EEOC case that was complicated with both Retaliation and Discrimination. EEOC cases are time driven with events which must be completed on schedule. Literally in a matter of weeks he had to review, access and figure out how best to develop the Complaint and meet all the requirements.


    While we discussed the case back and forth, James was always steady, calm and listened intently, making sure he got all the facts and details he needed to represent me and go to work quickly. He worked diligently and tirelessly to meet all the built-in deadlines. When I finally read the Complaint filing and compared it to other like cases and law standards, I was very impressed with his skill and attention to detail and how thoroughly he’d been. Long story short, our Complaint filing met the standards and protocol for filing and we have a case that’s in the system. While we have only begun this journey, I know I’ve made the right choice.

    In the end no matter what’s your case, if having someone on your side that gives a 110% and delivers a quality product is important, then James Sudduth III comes with my highest personal recommendation.

  • If you're looking for an attorney to fight for you, call James.
    James was crucial in the process of navigating my way through a difficult time at my job. I consulted him on a number of occasions about how to properly (and legally) handle my problem with the office administration and human resource professionals. Throughout the entire ordeal, James could not have been more professional, courteous and knowledgeable regarding my employment issue. He was prompt with his responses and could not have shown more compassion for the issue. If you're looking for an attorney to fight for you, call James.

  • Overall, I had an extremely positive experience and am grateful for Ryan Smith help.
    As a recent college graduate, I went on a road trip down to Texas to celebrate. Everything was going well and we made it through the southern states without issue. As soon as I hit Louisiana, I ran into some trouble on the road. Not knowing the true ramifications, I went about my day. Later on, after leaving Lousiana, I found out that the issue required a court presence.
    As a person who is not from Louisiana, or the South, this immediately became an issue. I searched for traffic lawyers in the area using google and I kept seeing the same faces. I gave several a call and came up disappointed. One wanted me to pay a ridiculous amount in fees, another wouldn’t even write up a contract but wanted me to pay upfront and expected me to believe that he would be acting on my behalf. By chance, I ended up on this page and checked if they handled traffic cases.
    Overall, I had an extremely positive experience and am grateful for Ryan Smith help. When I first initiated contact, I asked him around 20+ questions. Mr Smith was quick to respond, helpful in answering all my questions, understanding in my needs/situation and patient in dealing with me. Even after a misread of the contract price on my part, he quickly corrected my misunderstanding and handle the situation professionally.
    Likewise, the fee was reasonable. For a one-time fee as stated in the contract, he was able to negotiate the issue outside of court, which ended up saving me money and time in the long run. If you unfortunately run into some legal issues in the area, I would recommend Sudduth and Associates.

  • He and his associates took on the job with full confidence, transparency, and above all- due diligence.
    After being jerked around by 2 previous lawyers, I was at my wits end to find someone in the Calcasieu parish of a professional nature, dedicated to take my case. Mr. Sudduth was the answer. He and his associates took on the job with full confidence, transparency, and above all- due diligence. They worked hard from beginning to end- while always maintaining communication and excellent service. Though I would hope never to require legal representation again, James and his team would be the folks I would call.

  • James was always professional and considered all of the facts when working towards resolution of matters.
    I have worked with James on a multitude of cases as an adversary when he was a prosecutor. James was always professional and considered all of the facts when working towards resolution of matters. He exercised great wisdom in the execution of his job a prosecutor. As a private attorney, I have consulted several times with James and he continues to be incredibly professional always extending himself. He is one of the local attorneys to whom I refer clients who are seeking counsel in areas that I do not practice.

  • Without a doubt, I would recommend James to anybody looking for Lawyer who is looking after their clients best interest.
    I was referred to James by a friend of mine as I was being unfairly treated at work. In short, my Manager at the time was incompetent and making decisions that were detrimental to the business I had been working for, for the past 5 years. I approached him regarding a variety of issues, at which point he decided to make it his mission to try get me fired. I was called to his office and given a final warning, for an issue that he had fabricated. he had not followed any company policy, he had no supporting documentation, however the HR Manager he had consulted supported his action. Being in the US on a work visa and in an 'at will' state and not having knowledge of US employment law, I felt my best course of action was to take legal advice....enter James Sudduth. James met with me at very short notice, after hours and we discussed my situation in detail. Firstly, I felt very at ease speaking with James. He listened, took detailed notes and asked for clarification where he felt it was required. Secondly, he gave me some excellent advice regarding my situation, both legal and also mediation. He also gave me excellent advice as to how record what was happening and key things I was to notate, were things to go legal. Refreshingly, James advised to mediate first in order to both preserve my relationship with my company and also to avoid legal bills. I returned to work and following the advice James had provided, I escalated my appeal to the HR Director. In short, all my warnings were revoked and the Manager was relieved of his duties. Importantly, my reputation was preserved and I have been able to refocus energy on getting my job done. Without a doubt, I would recommend James to anybody looking for Lawyer who is looking after their clients best interest.
