Adrian Paul Smith
Adrian Paul Smith is a trial attorney with Babcock Partners, LLC. He was born on the bayou in Bourg, Louisiana, where he grew up in a French-speaking household. He received his undergraduate degree from Louisiana State University and his law degree from Louisiana State University’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center. His French fluency prompted him to study abroad and intern in France during law school, giving him a deeper understanding of Louisiana’s civil law origins.
Adrian has been licensed to practice law since 2018 and is licensed in all state and federal courts. He began his practice as a solo practitioner helping individuals, often of limited means, with litigation matters ranging from civil and family law to criminal law. This showed him how gratifying it can be to help those who cannot help themselves. Deviating from this path, he then spent several years practicing insurance defense, protecting the rights of large corporations engaged in litigation, where he attended many court hearings and was the lead attorney on several trials. He then practiced personal injury law in a Lafayette, Louisiana-based litigation firm before joining Babcock Partners’ litigation practice, specializing in non-standard insurance defense, commercial litigation, and catastrophic personal injury matters.
Adrian is involved in the community and volunteers his time with various non-profits. Adrian enjoys cycling and spending time with his wife in his free time.
