Personal Attention. Powerful Representation. 

Six Decades Of Experience. A Passion For Unparalleled Representation.

At Koch & Schmidt LLC, we have dedicated ourselves to excellent client service, providing a large range of litigation and business legal services regardless of the complexity of a case. We’ve done this since the founding of our firm. Our small firm located in downtown New Orleans at 650 Poydras Street. We provide the highest-quality legal representation to our clients without the costly overhead and fees of a larger firm.

We have a proud legacy of success in litigation. Combined, our partners, R. Joshua Koch Jr. and F. Evans Schmidt, and our legal team have more than 60 years of experience. During our decades in practice, we have developed intuitive problem-solving skills and sharp negotiation and trial tactics. Whether our clients require a legal team to vigorously pursue or defend their interests at trial or more consultative services to navigate the legal system, our attorneys come to every case ready with a plan and a solution.
