Dogged litigation leads to successful recovery for clients despite bankruptcy

Location: Lafayette, Louisiana
Debtor: New Louisiana Holdings, LLC, et al.
Amount: Confidential settlement


Wilkes Law Firm represented families whose loved ones were injured or died while in the care of the Debtors, which operated a nursing home empire spanning multiple states including Florida, Georgia, and Louisiana. After extensive negotiations and vigorous participation on the Unsecured Creditors Committee, Wilkes & McHugh successfully negotiated a compromise with the Debtors to secure a recovery for clients who otherwise may have received nothing as unsecured creditors.
