Our Firm

Chaffe McCall has built a reputation for achieving results in our clients’ best interests, both nationally and internationally, on a wide range of legal matters. Our focus on high quality client service can be traced back more than 190 years.

Since 1826, the lawyers of Chaffe McCall have always focused on a primary mission:  to provide the highest quality legal services in our clients’ best interests.  Our attorneys are dedicated to gathering a full understanding of our clients’ business needs and are known for successfully providing legal guidance consistent with their business interests. Our continuing success and longevity is due to a history of distinguished leaders and a team of talented, creative, and hardworking attorneys and professionals, who meet our clients’ legal needs timely and cost-effectively.  These guiding principles have made Chaffe McCall the exceptional firm that it is today.

Chaffe McCall’s record of success—in landmark litigation and dispute resolution, in negotiations and transactions large and small, and in legal advice and counsel to businesses and individuals alike—sets us apart as a law firm of choice.  It is a position that we have earned since our inception and that we will continue to maintain in service to our clients and our community.

Chaffe McCall works with clients regionally, nationally, and internationally to address the challenges they face in several areas of law.  We are centrally located in downtown New Orleans with additional offices in Houston, Baton Rouge, and Lake Charles. Together, our attorneys provide full, value-added services to our clients, who have access to our lawyers in as many different areas of expertise as the particular engagement requires.
