We Can Help


Many times people do not seek the guidance of an attorney for fear that doing so would be too expensive and complicated. At Kleinpeter Schwartzberg Boutwell LLC, we alleviate those fears right away. Your first consultation is always free.

During that first meeting you will find out whether your problem requires the assistance of an attorney and what we can do to help. Fees and costs are discussed up front. There is no “guessing” as to what your fee might be for our services.

When you enter our office you will know that our attorneys and other staff members genuinely care about you and your legal concerns.

If we cannot give your case the attention it deserves we will tell you so. We do not take cases unless we feel we can devote the resources necessary to attend to them properly.

Founded in 1982

Robert E. Kleinpeter and Alan L. Schwartzberg founded Kleinpeter Schwartzberg Boutwell LLC in 1982 after having been partners in another firm. The partners dedicated Kleinpeter Schwartzberg Boutwell LLC to the legal ideal that citizens unfairly injured by others should have access to the civil justice system no matter how poor or underprivileged they are, The attorneys practice all over the state of Louisiana.

Cases & Clients

Many of our clients have been injured in motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, or eighteen wheelers. Other clients have been harmed by toxic chemicals, injured by a defective product, or harmed because of someone else’s negligence.

Sometimes we represent clients when their insurance company refuses to pay a claim such as uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, property loss, or health insurance benefits.


We believe our attorneys should support Baton Rouge and surrounding communities through involvement in civic associations and activities.

Our lawyers are regularly involved in local school activities, church and synagogue functions, and non-profit organizations.
