About Our Firm
We are attorneys John Van Norman III and John Van Norman IV — we’re a father-son team and we are dedicated to being your legal resource in southwest Louisiana. John Van Norman III began practicing law more than four decades ago in order to provide the people of Louisiana with exceptional legal assistance. Since 1973, our practice, Van Norman Law Firm, has become known among clients and colleagues alike for our commitment to honest advice, personalized attention and vigorous representation in and out of the courtroom.
In addition to our legal practice, the elder Mr. Van Norman acts as an authorized agent for First American Title Insurance Company of Louisiana. He is also a member of the Calcasieu Parish Bar Association and the Southwest Louisiana Roundtable of Real Estate Attorneys; and of course both of our attorneys are members of the Louisiana State Bar Association.
