In 1958, Ralph Fishman and Cicero Sessions teamed up to found the firm now known as Sessions, Fishman, Nathan & Israel, L.L.C. At the time, Ralph Fishman was recognized as one of the most astute real-estate lawyers in the South, and Cicero Sessions was among New Orleans' most able trial lawyers. The two men built a law firm concentrating on real estate, business law, and litigation. Then, as now, the firm provides high quality, cost-effective, and innovative legal services.

The firm's practice has broadened steadily since its founding. Besides real estate, business law, and all types of litigation, our major practice areas today include banking, bankruptcy and credit relations, consumer law (defense), insurance law and tort defense, health care, labor and employment, products liability, trusts and estates, and tax.

While based in New Orleans, we also have offices in Atlanta, Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Colorado, Dallas, Metairie, New Jersey, San Diego and Tampa. Sessions, Fishman, Nathan & Israel, L.L.C. services clients throughout the nation.
