Jed Cain is an accomplished trial lawyer that has obtained multi-million dollar jury verdicts throughout the state of Louisiana and has been recognized by the New York Times and New Orleans Times Picayune. His accomplishments include securing both an $8.05 million verdict and a $7.45 million verdict within one month of each other. He has devoted his career to representing and protecting injured workers and their families.
In 2014, Jed was awarded the F. Scott Baldwin Award by the American Association for Justice (AAJ). AAJ, formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA), is the world’s largest trial lawyer bar and supports victims’ rights worldwide. The F. Scott Baldwin Award is presented each year to the “most outstanding young trial lawyer” in the country.
Jed is a 2015 graduate of the Trial Lawyers College, an invitation only program founded and led by legendary trial lawyer, Gerry Spence, over the course of three weeks in Wyoming.
Jed is originally from the small town of Natchitoches, Louisiana (made famous by the movie “Steel Magnolias”). Growing up, he had the good fortune (sometimes misfortune) of being raised by a Methodist minister. Despite a childhood of weekly church attendance, Jed boasts a stellar record of having only been called down twice by his father from the pulpit. The scars left by his mother’s pinches in the pew were a small price to pay for such unmatched “preacher’s kid” credentials.
Jed grew up an avid competitive swimmer. After years of swimming up and down the black lines of chlorinated pools, he followed those black lines to Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas. After only four years of collegiate swimming Jed emerged from Arkansas reeking of chlorine but with a degree in hand.
Upon graduating from Hendrix, Jed spent a year teaching 5th grade at an elementary school in Shreveport, Louisiana before attending law school at Tulane University. He would later come to appreciate that no jury would ever be so daunting as a classroom of twenty-eight 5th graders.
Jed is the founder of Cain's River, a digital community founded upon the art of small town story telling. Each year, Cain's River sponsors a $2,500 scholarship for the student who shows the most promising small town storytelling skills.
