About Our Firm
From Left to Right: Bruce S. Kingsdorf, Barbara Treuting Casteix, Zachary L. Wool, and Dawn M. Barrios
At Barrios, Kingsdorf & Casteix, LLP, we provide comprehensive legal services for our clients, in both the greater New Orleans region and across the country. Our location in the New Orleans Central Business District at the corner of St. Charles Avenue and Poydras Street, only blocks from Orleans Parish Civil District Court and the Federal Court complex, provides our attorneys with the starting point they need to effectively represent our clients. Though we are a small, boutique law firm, we are a Louisiana firm with a national reach.
The firm was founded by Dawn M. Barrios, Bruce S. Kingsdorf and Barbara Treuting Casteix in 1995, after having practiced together for more than 15 years. In 2010, Zachary L. Wool joined the firm, allowing it to grow organically and better serve more clients, all while maintaining the firm’s high standards.
Our legal philosophy is simple — we wholeheartedly believe in being vigorous advocates for our clients. When meeting with other lawyers, whether in a courtroom or across a conference table, our clients come first. Their goals become our goals. Such quality representation, though, is only half of our mission. We strive equally as hard to be counselors for our clients. In our role as counselors, we guide our clients through the legal maze in which they find themselves, translating the complex legal field into language our clients can understand. We inform our clients of all their options and rights so they can make the decisions on the legal issues. Keeping our clients informed and in-the-know helps them better understand the ever-changing landscape of their legal needs and it also puts their minds at ease.
