31 Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys, previously McKernan Law Firm, was founded by the late Joseph J. "Jerry" McKernan, who based his law practice on Christian principles. The firm began as a small injury firm with a single location and 6 attorneys. Growing up, Gordon admired his father's passion to be a voice for those that have been injured through no fault of their own; this fueled his desire to become an attorney. In 1992, Gordon McKernan took over the firm to carry on his father's legacy. The torch that was passed onto him now burns, brighter than ever, with over 42 attorneys and 8 locations. The right to a jury in civil cases is one of the most important rights in the U.S. Constitution, which secures the liberty of the people. The firm bases its practices on the belief that justice should be blind and treat everyone equally regardless of their economic status, race, sex, or for any other reason. According to Proverbs 31:8-9, "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the right of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy." The rule of law is that when an innocent person is wronged, they should have a legal remedy; there should be an attorney willing to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves and protect their rights. Gordon, as well as the attorneys and staff at McKernan, aspire daily to live up to the high principles that the U.S. government and legal system have set by fighting for their clients and ensuring their rights. Members of the firm do not do this because the law requires them to, but because of their belief in God, justice and that "the law is light" Proverbs 6:23. McKernan attorneys, staff and family truly believe that the success of the firm is a blessing bestowed by God, visible through the support extended to them by communities throughout Louisiana. Due to such support, those at the McKernan firm desire to give back to the community and help those that may be less fortunate (Matthew 25:35) by giving back to Louisiana communities in various ways, including charitable, educational and civic projects.
