Baton Rouge, Louisiana, March 8, 2024— Stephen Babcock, esteemed legal advocate and founder of Babcock Partners, LLC, has been recognized as the 2024 Attorney of the Year by Top 100 Lawyers for his exceptional representation and commitment to justice within the State of Louisiana. Each year, the Top 100 Lawyers’ Board of Directors identifies a lawyer for their contributions to the legal profession. With great honor Top 100 Lawyers recognize the 2024 Attorney of the Year, Stephen Babcock.

With nearly 25 years of litigation experience, Stephen has built a strong reputation for professionalism, integrity, and work ethic among his peers in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, legal community. This LSU Law School graduate has successfully litigated cases ranging from minor fender benders to 100-million-dollar commercial litigation matters. His “client-centered” approach to representation has garnered an impressive volume of 5-star reviews that highlight his legal skill and willingness to advocate zealously for his clients. Babcock attributes his success to the work ethic instilled in him by his mother.

Born and raised outside Ruston, La., Stephen went to Louisiana Tech University, receiving a B.S. in marketing in 1997. He was already a licensed real estate agent then and intended to go to law school and become a title attorney. However, shortly after starting his studies at Louisiana State University’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center, Babcock changed his mind and realized he wanted to be a trial lawyer.

After receiving his J.D. in 2000, he launched his legal career, joining Allstate Insurance Co. as an in-house trial attorney. A year later, he joined the law firm of McKay Williamson Lutgring & Cochran as an associate attorney, mainly handling personal injury cases. In 2003, he ventured out to create his own firm, which would inevitably become Babcock Injury Lawyers. Babcock has served clients’ legal needs from his Baton Rouge office ever since. 

Stephen tries cases when he has to. His practice focuses only on litigation and he has tried cases in state and federal courts throughout Louisiana. Stephen has litigated over $125 million in injury and business disputes. A licensed pilot, Babcock often flies to his destinations to use his time for clients more efficiently. Although he never turns down the chance to try cases before juries, Babcock is also a strong proponent of alternative dispute resolution and participates in mediations and arbitrations.

Stephen is no stranger to being recognized for his work ethic, legal results, or professionalism. Throughout his career, Babcock has exemplified the highest legal professionalism and ethics standards. His unwavering commitment to serving the best interests of his clients has earned him widespread acclaim and recognition within the legal community, including several professional and legal organizations.
