    Attorney Profile

    Success in personal injury goes beyond the important task of securing compensation. As Claude P. Devall knows, victims of negligence in Lake Charles, Louisiana, deserve to be heard. As an attorney at Hoffoss Devall, he strives to ensure that the outcome of every case is monetarily beneficial to the client and that the defendant learns a lesson in avoiding these mistakes in the future.

    Mr. Devall's background is one of the reasons he has had so much success representing those who have suffered maritime incidents, car crashes and animal bites. To begin with, he started working as a deckhand at 12 years old, and eventually gained experience as part of a barge crew. He understands the injurious situations that happen in this setting. Mr. Devall compounded that experience with a solid education, earning undergraduate degrees in sociology and business administration from Louisiana State University in 2001. He then received a Juris Doctor in 2004 from the Southern University Law Center.

    Continually learning about his practice, Mr. Duvall is a member of the Southwest Louisiana Bar Association and the Louisiana State Bar Association. He is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

    Today, he has obtained millions of dollars for clients. In one case, in which insurance providers shortchanged people with cancer, he helped secure $17.25 million in reimbursements. Then he won another $6 million in injunctive relief through which increases on the policyholders' future premiums were reduced.
