Since 1993, the Baton Rouge office of McGlinchey Stafford has provided innovative legal services to local and national clients. Yet throughout its 30-year history, McGlinchey has been much more than a law firm. Deeply embedded in the community, the firm maintains an active commitment to community development, education and strengthening local organizations.
