Founder and Lead Attorney, Jacque Touzet, is an experienced personal injury lawyer who started MotoJustice to focus his legal practice on helping injured motorcycle riders. Jacque is a lifelong rider who found a need in the community for a law firm that would take riders seriously and help them get the justice they deserve. He’s seen first-hand how how most personal injury attorneys misunderstand how motorcycles work, how motorcycle riders think, or the specifics of motorcycle cases. He knows that as a rider himself, the knowledge he brings is valued and valuable.
Jacque is a first generation American born and raised in New Orleans. He grew up helping his father in the family saddle shop near the New Orleans Fairgrounds. As a kid, Jacque fell in love with riding mini-bikes, go carts, and any other type of wheeled vehicle with a motor.
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.
After college, Jacque returned to New Orleans and worked in the family business and 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 career during the day. After graduating from law school in 1999, he started his own law practice.
Jacque’s interest in motorcycles grew from those early days. His first “real” bike was an ugly but lovable Suzuki 550GS, followed by a Ducati Monster, a Harley V-Rod, a handful of dirtbikes and two superbikes which he enjoys riding at speed at the track.
Clients who ask Jacque to handle their cases won’t find a more easy-going, confident or knowledgeable personal injury attorney in the state. If Jacque sounds like the right lawyer for you, contact us today.
Thankfully, there is a personal injury lawyer out there who knows motorcycles and is truly interested in getting clients back on a bike and back on the road. That lawyer is Jacque Touzet.– Hunter E., New Orleans
