Trevor M. Cutaiar

Associate Trevor Cutaiar’s practice focuses on admiralty and maritime litigation and insurance defense. Trevor also has significant experience in handling state and federal asbestos exposure cases involving a unique combination of Louisiana tort law, federal constitutional law, multi-district litigation and state and federal workers’ compensation schemes. He has represented a range of clients, including municipalities, local boat companies, and national and international corporations.

Trevor likes to solve problems and obtain the best results for his clients. “My undergraduate degree was in journalism, so I have a unique perspective on fact-finding and the questions that need to be asked. I really enjoy working with my clients and like to listen. I make sure to advise them of the strengths and the weaknesses of their positions and don’t just tell them what they want to hear.”
