Our Firm

For nearly 90 years, the law offices of Jewell & Jewell have provided legal services and representation to the people of Pointe Coupee Parish and surrounding areas. After graduating from LSU Law School in 1931, Joseph Thomas (“Tom”) Jewell earned his license to practice law in Louisiana and established a law office in his hometown of New Roads. Tom was joined in 1934 by his younger brother Joseph Philibert (“J. P.”) Jewell, Jr., following his graduation from LSU Law School. A third Jewell brother, Francis Douglas (“Doug”) Jewell, followed in their footsteps and graduated from LSU law school in 1950. For many years, the Jewell attorneys maintained offices on the top floor of a prominent commercial building in the shadow of the Pointe Coupee Parish courthouse. In 1974, Jewell & Jewell moved to its present location just around the corner in downtown New Roads.

Today, John Wayne and Stephen P. Jewell continue our firm’s mission of providing quality services to our community. For three generations, Jewell & Jewell has proudly provided a comprehensive range of legal services, along with a title insurance agency which handles real estate transactions and mortgage loan closings.
