A Firm Foundation

Founded in 1917 as Goldstein & Walker, a partnership of Elias Goldstein and Henry C. Walker, Jr., our firm quickly became a major player in the growing economy of North Louisiana, spurred at that time by the emerging oil and gas industry. Within a year, Goldstein & Walker added as a partner former Louisiana Governor Newton C. Blanchard. Throughout our history, we have remained closely identified with the oil and gas industry and have been involved in numerous landmark court decisions in the field.
