The official groundbreaking for the office will be on May 1, 2024, with a groundbreaking ceremony slated to start at 10 a.m. The new office is expected to open in February 2025.

Caubarreaux has an office on Kaliste Saloom in Lafayette, but this new construction will put him in the heart of the River Ranch area. He also has offices at 144 Tunica Drive West in Marksville and 2204 MacArthur Drive in Alexandria.

"Caubarreaux and his associates have earned multiple million dollar-plus judgments for clients injured in automobile accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, offshore accidents, premises liability, intentional torts, wrongful death and survivor claims," a release from his office states. "The new Caubarreaux office has begun construction construction in the River Ranch community of Lafayette with Rudick Construction Group and Ackal Architects behind the build."

Caubarreaux was born right here in the heart of Acadiana, according to his website, and his upbringing plays a role in his practice.

"Brian was born in Lafayette, Louisiana and is the son of Leroy and Donna Caubarreaux," his website reads. "Leroy Caubarreaux served in the Marines, the Army and was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. Brian accredits his work ethic, strong family values and unwillingness to 'cut corners' to his parents.

"From an early age, Brian’s father instilled a desire within him to help others," the site adds. "While being a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, he saved hundreds of people. It was a dangerous job. It required acute focus, attention to detail, and courage. He always told Brian, 'If you’re going to do something, Do It Right.'"

The History Behind Lafayette's Street Names

We drive them on a daily basis. Some are smoother than others. Some we use more frequently than others. Some randomly start, end, and/or change names. They're the streets of Lafayette. The names behind many of these streets have interesting histories. We take a look at where those names come from and the impact their namesakes have had on the city and the parish.
