Invested In The Communities We Call Home

The SWLA Injury Attorneys law firm was founded by attorneys Mike Williamson, Rachel Couvillion, and Jason Bell based on a shared belief that the people of Lake Charles and all of Louisiana deserve legal counsel they can trust to put them first. This is not only a foundational principle of our law practice, but a guiding light in all we do.

Although our community has experienced severe hardships over the past several years, we have also shown our strength, unity, and resilience in times of adversity. At SWLA Injury Attorneys, we are committed to investing in the communities we call home through sponsorships, philanthropic endeavors, and community outreach. We are proud to call Lake Charles home and invite you to join us at our next community event!

Heart of Atchafalaya Fall Fest
| October 28, 2023

All proceeds from the Heart of Atchafalaya Fall Fest in Breaux Bridge are invested back into the Butte La Rose community to preserve and upgrade properties, playgrounds, and landscaping around the area. While SWLA Injury Attorneys proudly sponsored the event, Rachel had all the fun! From the Black Pot Wild Game Cook Off to trick-or-treating to live performances by local musicians, there was no shortage of family-friendly entertainment—and all for a great cause.

Lawyers In Libraries
| October 23 – 29, 2023

Every year, the Louisiana Stata Bar Association hosts the Lawyers in Libraries event in celebration of National Pro Bono week. Both Mike and Jason volunteered to participate in this year’s Ask-A-Lawyer Consultations at Epps Library in Lake Charles. They each spent two hours meeting with patrons to answer their civil legal questions and connect them with the right resources.

Bags & Brew Cornhole Tournament
| October 21, 2023

Our attorneys, staff, and families spent the day at The Stadium Sports Grill in Deridder where we tried our hand at sinking a few beanbags to raise funds for one of our favorite non-profit organizations, BBBS of Southwest Louisiana. All in good fun and for a good cause, the proceeds raised from this event will be used to fund the youth mentoring programming in Beauregard Parish.

McNeese Cowboy Gallop 5K
| October 7, 2023

It was a beautiful day for a 5k on October 7. While Mike and Jason have been known to lace up their sneakers and hit the asphalt, today they manned the hydration station at the Cowboy Gallop 5k. Along with Mike’s kids, they happily handed out water to runners during this event benefiting the McNeese Track & Field teams.

Bowling for Kids’ Sake
| August 19, 2023

SWLA Injury Attorneys had a blast at BBBS of Southwest Louisiana’s largest annual fundraising event. Held at Petro Bowl in Lake Charles, this event helps support the BBBS Summer Mentoring Academy program. This program provides area families a safe and educational environment for kids throughout the summer months. Our four teams, each captained by one of our paralegals, hit the lanes as the Courtroom Crushers, The Empire STRIKES Back, The Alley Advocates and Lawsuit Launchers. Gutter balls or not, we all felt like winners after helping to raise money for a cause close to our hearts.
