A true Louisianan, E was born in St. Martinville, LA, on July 13, 1958. He grew up in the heart of Cajun country in Baton Rouge, where his father Gerald “Jay-Boy” Guirard founded the Mid-South Door Company. After graduating from Catholic high school in 1976, E went on to receive his Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science from LSU in 1981. He continued his education to pursue a career in law, and in 1987 was granted his Juris Doctorate from the LSU Paul M. Herbert Law Center.
E’s more than just a lawyer and values his community deeply. A big believer in community involvement and stewardship, E founded the E Eric Guirard Foundation in 2009 with the goal to “Make Baton Rouge Safe, Clean & Lean.” The foundation works with community leaders, the East Baton Rouge city-parish government, private businesses, and other charities to assist the city with issues like safety, crime prevention, health, litter eradication, and more.
E is also a passionate musician who’s written a rap/reggae album as well as a country music album. He’s a health enthusiast who loves to run, lift weights, and play basketball and tennis; he’s a committed practitioner of “Yogalates.” He’s authored a book and run for the office of Lieutenant Governor. He is a father, a volunteer, an activist, and a devoted citizen of Baton Rouge. He is as dedicated to his clients, and his employees, as he is to every aspect of his life. If you need legal representation in the wake of an injury or accident, E will fight on your behalf to win your case. He’s not a run-of-the-mill person, and he’s not a run-of-the-mill lawyer.
