Jacque Touzet is a tenacious personal injury lawyer who has focused his legal practice to help injured riders. As a devoted rider himself, he has refined his practice in order to help his friends and peers in the larger motorcycling community. He’s seen first hand how most attorneys with general personal injury practices don’t understand how motorcycles work, how motorcycle riders think, or the idiosyncrasies of motorcycle cases. He knows that the knowledge he brings is valued and valuable.
A first generation American born and raised in New Orleans, Jacque often helped his father work in the family business, a saddle workshop near the New Orleans Fairgrounds. As a kid, Jacque also enjoyed riding mini-bikes, go carts, and any other type of wheeled vehicle with a motor on it.
Jacque graduated from Isidore Newman School in Uptown New Orleans and went to Connecticut College in New London, Connecticut, which he attended on a scholarship and where he earned a degree in biology.
After college, Jacque returned to New Orleans, and his early career involved working at a science lab and also serving as a guide on saltwater fly-fishing trips. He enrolled in the Loyola School of Law, taking classes at night while continuing his fly fishing and lab jobs during the day. After graduating from law school in 1999, he started his own law practice.
In the meantime, Jacque’s interest in motorcycles grew. His first real bike was an ugly but lovable Suzuki 550GS. He later bought a Ducati Monster, and now he also has two superbikes which he enjoys riding at speed at NOLA Motorsports Park.
Clients who ask Jacque to handle their cases won’t find a more easy-going, confident or knowledgeable personal injury attorney in the New Orleans area.
An experienced and dedicated attorney, Carolyn Hennesy works closely with Jacque Touzet and MotoJustice clients. Carolyn is involved with investigating accidents, gathering evidence, coordinating medical treatment for clients, taking depositions, preparing motions and pleadings, and presenting arguments to the court.
Carolyn was born and raised in New Orleans where she attended high school at Metairie Park Country Day School. She left her hometown to go to college at Sewanee, a small Episcopal university in Tennessee, where she was a member of the Order of the Gownsmen, an academic society. She then returned to New Orleans to attend law school at Tulane University School of Law. At Tulane, Carolyn participated in the Tulane Environmental Law Clinic, offering volunteer legal services to citizens facing environmental hazards. She was exposed to the legal profession at an early age thanks to her father, also a lawyer, and knew she wanted to follow in his footsteps, which she has for the past twenty years.
Carolyn’s practice began on the Northshore where she worked with experienced attorneys performing general civil law. She moved her practice to New Orleans in 1999 and worked in insurance defense at some of the city’s larger law firms. In 2010, Carolyn decided to go out on her own and start a solo practice. After several years as a solo lawyer, Carolyn and Jacque Touzet, who had been friends for a long time, decided to team up. They represent clients in a variety of cases but focus on protecting the interests of motorcycle riders. Carolyn is a diligent and responsive lawyer, always available to help her clients with their legal concerns.
She is also well respected by her peers in the legal profession. She received the rating of AV Rated Preeminent (the highest possible), through the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings.
