Blue Williams is thankful to its loyal staff and attorneys who are working as best as their individual situations allow to reopen the law firm offices in the wake of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Ida. Many have suffered damage to their homes due to the storm. We wish our Blue Williams personnel and the Greater New Orleans community the speediest of recoveries.

Blue Williams’ main office located in Metairie suffered damage due to Hurricane Ida. Blue Williams’ offices in Mandeville and New Orleans are undamaged. The Mandeville and New Orleans offices will reopen on Tuesday September 7th with limited staffing and services. The main office in Metairie will be closed until further notice as we evaluate the damage and repairs required to reopen. Our attorneys and staff will be working remotely as much as possible. Blue Williams’ email system and computer network is functioning. Blue Williams’ telephone system is not yet functioning. We encourage our clients to initiate communications via email or cell phone. Please keep in mind that cell system infrastructure in the Greater New Orleans area has been damaged and cell service on all carriers is sporadic and limited.

The Louisiana Supreme Court, the First, Fourth, and Fifth Circuits of the Louisiana Court of Appeal, and the federal courts for the Louisiana Eastern and Middle Districts having jurisdiction over the areas affected by Hurricane Ida have issued orders that suspend filing deadlines, scheduled court hearings, etc. Governor Edwards also issued an amendment to the Louisiana State of Emergency Order pertaining to Hurricane Ida suspending legal deadlines. Blue Williams’ attorneys are aware of these orders and will govern their activities accordingly. Below are links to the relevant court orders:


Our New Orleans, Metairie, and Mandeville offices are open Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:00pm. We have continued to monitor and follow all guidelines issued by the State Fire Marshall and the Governor’s office. We will update you as we monitor additional developments from the local and parish governments. We hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
