The William Gee Law Firm based in Lafayette, LA is a plaintiff’s personal injury law firm founded in 1991, which provides legal services to injured maritime workers (offshore and inland), truck/car crash victims, and those hurt by dangerous products.

William’s proudest professional achievement is leading a team of lawyers to get a $117 million jury verdict—Louisiana’s largest single event personal injury award.

William has been ranked in the top 1% of U.S. attorneys (Rue Ratings), he is listed in Best Lawyers in America; and has been selected as a member of Elite Lawyers of America.

William is a loyal Louisiana resident, having lived in Lafayette since 1984. For 10 years as a youth, William raced sailboats in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean and large lakes. William is also an avid certified scuba diver. Sailing and scuba have given William a passion for maritime and admiralty law. William has also worked offshore performing heavy manual labor. Also, to prepare for trial, William has visited and photographed numerous maritime worksites, in the Gulf of Mexico and inland waters—to physically inspect accident/injury scenes on vessels, drilling rigs, and production platforms. (Many lawyers do not take the time to do this). This real world experience gives William a true feel for injury events on navigable waters, both inland and in the Gulf of Mexico.

While growing up William had a passion for sports cars, which led him to racing both open and closed wheeled cars on tracks throughout the South. William has also operated an 18-wheeler. This vehicular experience, along with completing several racing schools, has given William a true feel for truck and car wrecks. There are always a lot of physical dynamics in every truck and car crash—that can best be understood by a trained driver.


While in high school William decided he wanted to get a top-notch education. This led William to Emory University, a superior academic institution in Atlanta, Georgia.  William obtained his undergraduate degree from Emory in economics and philosophy.  Then William completed his studies at the well respected Tulane Law School, where William studied with national and international students, and excelled in his maritime and admiralty classes.
