Detailed Information

Jason Baer is the founder and Managing Partner of Baer Law LLC.  Jason has a reputation in the Louisiana legal community as an aggressive litigator, a shrewd negotiator, and a successful trial lawyer.

Over the past few years, Jason has developed a thriving personal injury practice.  In fact, leading attorneys throughout Louisiana seek Jason out to co-counsel with them on complicated, high-stakes trucking, negligent security, and commercial motor vehicle collision cases. Recently, Jason also started handling a class action against a major social media company.

Prior to founding Baer Law, Jason was a Partner at a local New Orleans plaintiff’s firm, where he not only led the Personal Injury Division, but also worked on more than 800 property insurance cases for Louisiana policyholders.

Jason’s background is part of what has made him so successful as a “lawyer’s lawyer.”  After almost ten years as a successful defense attorney, Jason made the switch to the plaintiff side.  Since that time, Jason has used his defense background—and especially his background in defending large trucking casualty cases—to outmaneuver his opponents in both personal injury and first-party property cases.  Because Jason has extensive experience doing defense work, he’s able to anticipate insurance companies’ arguments and head them off.

Currently, Jason focuses his practice on trucking and transportation casualty, premises liability, and negligent security cases.  He also handles complex insurance coverage matters. Jason has successfully litigated complex cases involving catastrophic injuries and has secured favorable settlements and verdicts for his clients in state and federal court.

Mr. Baer has been recognized by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star; by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys as one of the 10 Best in Client Satisfaction; by Attorney and Practice Magazine as a Top 10 Personal Injury Attorney; by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys in their Top 10 Under 40; by the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers and Top 40 under 40; by the Lawyers of Distinction as a Power Lawyer and Top-Rated Lawyer in Louisiana; by the Motor Vehicle Trial Lawyers in their Top 25; and by both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Also, New Orleans CityBusiness chose Jason for their 2020 Leadership in Law class, recognizing area professionals in the field of law for their career and community accomplishments.
