We strive to have attorneys and staff that live in the same communities as our offices. We are truly your local attorneys!
Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys was originally founded as McKernan Law Firm in the early ’80s by the late Jerry McKernan who based his law practice on Christian principles and protecting the rights of people whose lives had been impacted through an accident. McKernan Law Firm began as a small injury firm with only a few attorneys. The firm grew during the ’90s, and by the time Gordon McKernan took over running the firm it had expanded to six attorneys. Eventually, the firm became known as Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys and has expanded to over 150 employees, 53 attorneys, and nine satellite locations. Inspired by his father to practice law, Gordon took over the firm in 2009 and has dramatically increased his presence throughout Louisiana. Gordon remains grounded in the Biblical principles that he was taught by his family and continues to devote his practice to helping clients resolve their personal injury claims fairly.
Our mission at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys is to provide the highest quality of legal service, compassion, and support to our clients and their families. Our commitment is evidenced through our constant and relentless pursuit of truth and justice while maximizing our client’s recovery.
