About John Pucheu
John has been a partner for twenty-four years in Pucheu, Pucheu & Robinson, L.L.P., a small-town family firm that was begun by his father in 1950. For over fifty years, Pucheu, Pucheu & Robinson has primarily focused on litigation representing accident victims seeking justice through the legal system. John began practicing with his father and brother in 1979. After the death of Jacque B. Pucheu in 1984, Michael Robinson joined the partnership and the firm name was changed to reflect that fact.
Although a large portion of John’s practice is related to personal injury cases, he also handles a lot of business and probate litigation. His significant trials, both jury and non-jury, include matters as diverse as automobile accidents, contested collation, a contract nullified on grounds of “contra bono mores” by the Court of Appeal, contested corporate dissolutions, criminal counterfeiting, estate litigation on numerous issues, farm equipment franchise terminations, medical and legal malpractice, product liability, redhibition, a sailor lost at sea, shareholder derivative actions, tax litigation, undue influence in wills, and wrongful termination of various types of contracts (from “A to W” and waiting for cases involving X, Y and Z.) Although John enjoys conducting bench trials, he feels one of the best parts of being a trial lawyer is the challenge of communicating with a jury and helping them identify with, understand, and rule in favor of a truly deserving litigant. Although John is a plaintiff’s trial lawyer, in his paralegal classes, he strives to teach both sides of personal injury law because he recognizes that many of his students end up working for defense-oriented firms.
John has taught personal injury law in the paralegal program at LSU-Eunice for many years and has been actively involved in community activities including helping coach the Eunice High School mock trial team for several years. John is a member of the Louisiana Trial Lawyers Association, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the American Bar Association, the Louisiana State Bar Association and the St. Landry Parish Bar Association. He is a past president and active member of the Rotary Club of Eunice and has served several terms as an officer and Director of the Eunice Chamber of Commerce.
