About Attorney Max Antony
Max started his legal career at a large law firm in Dallas, Texas, representing massive insurance companies in defense of injury cases filed against trucking companies. Max then returned home to resume his defense practice at one of the largest and oldest law firms in Louisiana where he continued to represent the big insurance companies. However, Max eventually had enough of representing “Goliath” against “David”.
In 2017, Max started the Antony Law Group in Leesville, Louisiana with the sole purpose of serving those individuals who have been hurt in serious accidents or who have been wrongfully killed. Max serves his injured clients with the intention and dedication to recover the financial compensation they deserve.
Max leverages the skills, experience, and knowledge he obtained while defending the large insurance companies in his representation of local individuals in complex personal injury cases. Max handles a wide range of accident and injury cases, including those involving big truck accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, product liability cases, chemical exposure cases, wrongful death cases, and all other catastrophic injury cases.
Max believes that a focused law practice, outstanding client service, and a comprehensive knowledge of accident and injury law give his clients the best possible personal injury legal representation. Max is your local personal injury attorney serving Leesville, Deridder, Fort Polk, Many, and all of West Central Louisiana and East Texas. Max is licensed to practice law in both Louisiana and Texas.
Max was born in Alexandria, Louisiana and is the son of Max Edwin Antony and Quita Thompson Antony. His dad graduated from Leesville High School in 1976 and had a 40-year career with Shell Oil Company working offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. His mom coached basketball in Vernon Parish for over 20 years and was inducted into the Louisiana High School Sports Hall of Fame.

Max accredits his work ethic, grit, tenacity, and strong core values to his family. These values are the foundation upon which Max has built his legal career and reputation.
