DeLashmet & Marchand, PC.

As a full-service Gulf Coast law firm, DeLashmet & Marchand, P.C. understands that clients want and need more than just exceptional results. Clients also expect outstanding service and value.  Our lawyers devote their energy, skills and fervor to providing quality legal services to meet this philosophy by providing prompt responses, effective advice and efficient and cost-effective legal services to meet each client’s individual needs.

Our goal of providing client satisfaction can be summarized by the following terms:


Although the law is where our expertise lies, understanding a client’s business and the economic, political, financial, and technological developments that affect its goals is the best way to service the client’s needs. 


Information is power in litigation and business. We offer legal and practical information and counseling to our clients to assist them in recognizing areas of potential litigation, thereby avoiding lawsuits. In the event a lawsuit arises, we advise them on how to best serve their interests and gain valuable results. We keep up-to-date with the law and the ever evolving legal trends and use that information to assist our clients.


Our time, our talent, and our resources are devoted to providing exceptional services and delivering results for our clients. We strive to understand our client’s needs and devote ourselves to ensuring that our clients have what they need to reach their own ambitious goals.


Full involvement and cooperation between our lawyers and the client allows us to offer advice beyond simple legal implications and to analyze the full spectrum of real world consequences. Working across practice and industry groups also gives our clients access to more diverse skills and expertise.
