Art Laplante Profiled in Daily Business Review: a Lawyer Who Shows No Sign of Slowing Down

January 7, 2019

Hinshaw attorney Art Laplante—a partner in our Fort Lauderdale office—was recently profiled by the Daily Business Review. In the profile, Laplante discusses his 30-plus years with Hinshaw, how a book series propelled him into a lifelong career in the law, and why trust and credibility are such important attributes for any successful trial lawyer.

The profile describes a man who has long had a passion for travel, adventure and hard work; whether it be backpacking in Europe before law school, working the 4 am shift at UPS as a law student, or representing drilling contractor Transocean in an MDL resulting from the Deepwater Horizon incident.

"One of the things I love about being a lawyer is that in providing defense to someone, I have to know their business as well as they do," said Laplante. Developing a relationship with jurors is another key to his courtroom success: "When it comes time to ask [the jury] to go ahead and reach a verdict, they trust I'm credible and believable in what I ask them to do."
