At Edwin M. Shorty Jr. & Associates, in New Orleans, Louisiana, we practice law with a simple philosophy: People deserve to know they have a legal advocate fighting aggressively on their side. We are proud of the reputation we have been building throughout south Louisiana for more than 13 years. Whether it’s helping you and your family escape from the overwhelming burden of debt, fighting to help you recover compensation for a personal injury that wasn’t your fault, or making sure you get the Social Security Disability benefits you need and deserve, we care about advocating aggressively on your behalf.


If you’re considering bankruptcy, you should know that you’re not alone and you do have rights. Edwin Shorty and associates are experienced legal professionals who specialize in Louisiana’s complex bankruptcy law and we protect your rights.

When we take your case, garnishments stop, phone calls stop and you get the relief you’re looking for. Our offices are located next door to Bankruptcy Court for the convenient and efficient handling of your case.

Motor Vehicle Accidents And Personal Injury

When you’re hurt in a traffic accident or injured because someone else was careless or negligent, it affects every area of your life. You have the right to seek compensation in all areas, including past and future lost wages, medical expenses, damage to your property, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and all related damages and expenses. Edwin Shorty and associates provide the aggressive representation that gets positive results for their clients!

Social Security Disability

The truth is, many people receive a rejection letter from the Social Security Administration at first. So many, that it almost seems automatic. But there’s nothing automatic about your disability. Using the law and the requirements established by the Social Security Administration, we can help prove your disability case and get you the benefits you helped pay for and deserve.

DWI Defense

Everyone makes mistakes. If you have a DUI or DWI case, we provide the kind of understanding but firm representation that can help produce a positive outcome for you.
