“There's no greater satisfaction than getting Justice for our clients at the end of a trial."
--- Lee "Jody" Amedee III

Lee “Jody” Amedee III has been practicing law since 1996.  His love for people started at an early age when he worked with his grandfather and dad at their family restaurant in Geismar.  He learned what hard work and determination meant at an early age.  This work ethic propelled him through his life to be a successful trial lawyer.

Jody grew up showing livestock animals and excelling in sports.  He earned a baseball scholarship to Nicholls State University and graduated from there in 1990.  “When I got out of college, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to be involved in helping people.” says Amedee.  He graduated from Southern University Law School in 1996.

He graduated from the prestigious Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College in 2013, and has been on the faculty since 2015 where he enjoys training trial lawyers from across the country.
