Bart is a native of Lafayette, Louisiana, who earned his undergraduate degree in finance from the University of Louisiana in 1992 and his J.D. from Louisiana State University’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center in 1995. He spent a year clerking for U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Gerald H. Schiff in the Western District of Louisiana and then joined the legal department at Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans.
After years practicing in other cities, Bart decided he would return to his hometown in 1997 to launch his own legal firm and dedicated his practice to helping people who have been harmed through no fault of their own. Not long afterward, his success led him to open offices in Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
The Bart Bernard Personal Injury Law Firm concentrates mostly on accidents involving cars, motorcycles and trucks, including those involving 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks, offshore, maritime and industrial workplace accidents, and faulty medical devices and medications.
