Meet Our New Orleans, Louisiana Admiralty and Maritime Attorneys
At The Young Firm, our New Orleans, Louisiana personal injury, admiralty, and maritime attorneys boast more than 60 years of collective litigation experience and have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients throughout the Gulf Coast area.
Whereas many firms have a reputation for never going to court – seeking quick (and often below-value) out-of-court settlements – at our firm, that is not the case. Indeed, we are well known in the local courthouses. Since our firm's establishment, our lawyers have been engaged in the practice of personal injury, maritime, and admiralty law.
Our attorneys would be more than happy to provide a list of client references so that you can discuss our abilities with them. We have obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients throughout the Gulf Coast region. We can help you obtain compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Schedule your case evaluation today: 504-680-4100.
Our Paralegals, Investigators and Office Staff
The staff members of The Young Firm form the backbone of the office. We are very proud of our staff, not only because of the extensive experience they have in handling maritime and injury claims but also for the caring and personal attention they give to each client. We can honestly say that they understand how important each client's case is to that client. They know how to prepare and organize a maritime or injury case for trial and they regularly help prepare dozens of such cases for trial each year. The Young Firm's supportive staff of legal assistants, law clerks and office managers are here to serve you. If you have been seriously injured in a boating or maritime accident, contact The Young Firm. We assist victims throughout Louisiana and the Gulf Coast, so a boating accident and admiralty lawyer is here to carefully evaluate your claim and help you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.
Our office administrator, Shanon, joined the firm in 2010, continuing a career in the legal arena that has spanned 25 years and counting.

Lea'Case & Finance Director
Lea, the firm’s Case and Finance Director, has enjoyed working with Tim Young since 2000.

For more than 25 years, she has been married to her husband Joe and raised two amazing children: Beaux and Ellie. A New Orleans native, Lea feels blessed to have been born and raised in a city steeped in the culture of Southern hospitality.

Outside of the office, Lise volunteers with Animal Rescue New Orleans (ARNO), helping to re-home thousands of animals. While not rescuing dogs and cats, she enjoys taking vacations with her husband and spending time with her three dogs: Dino, Speckles, Belle, and Gen.
Rebecca serves as the Case Manager for Megan Misko and Tammy Harris and has been managing legal cases for more than 20 years. As a certified paralegal, Rebecca has worked for both sides of the courtroom — plaintiff and defense firms — but finds working with The Young Firm exceptionally rewarding because of our great staff and shared goal of focusing on our clients. Rebecca is a New Orleans native and, along with her husband, are proud parents of two wonderful girls: Madeline and Caroline. They share their home with a rat terrier named Tyke and two cats named Tiana and Simba. When she’s not managing cases, Rebecca’s favorite pastimes are relaxing with friends and family, baking, attending Madeline and Caroline’s sports games, and sampling new restaurants throughout New Orleans.
