If you’re here at this website, it’s likely that you or someone you love has been seriously injured due to the wrongdoing of someone else – or at the hands of an uncaring business. Or even worse, a loved one has been killed. If that is the case, I’d like to explain how we can help you.

My name is Mike Gertler.  I am a managing partner and one of the founders of the Gertler Law Firm – a New Orleans, Louisiana Personal Injury Law Firm.

Our firm is large enough to go toe-to-toe with big companies, yet small enough that we still offer personal service to our clients.

And for more than 35 years, this firm has successfully represented thousands of victims and families pursuing injury and wrongful death claims – not just in New Orleans and Metairie, but throughout the state of Louisiana, the Southeast and the country.
