Our History

The name Sudduth & Associates is a trade name long used within the Sudduth family. When, James E. “Jim” Sudduth and his family moved to the Lake Charles area he immediately began serving the public. After almost 50 years in public service to Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana, he retired and opened up an economic consulting firm bearing the name Sudduth & Associates.


Jim’s son, James E. “Bo” Sudduth, II approached his father about using the trade name as he began to acquire various properties for development, lease, and sale, therefore, expanding the portfolio of Sudduth & Associates into property management and development.


In 2013, upon his graduation from law school, James E. “James” Sudduth, III approached his father Bo about using the family trade name to open a law firm in the Lake Charles area. Bo agreed and shortly thereafter Sudduth & Associates, LLC was formally created providing legal services to residents throughout Louisiana and Texas. 


In 2018, after 5 years of planning, architectural revisions, permitting, and construction James finished the historic renovation, construction, and expansion of the over 100-year-old historic McLeod Family Home in the heart of Lake Charles, Louisiana. In July of 2018, the law firm Sudduth and Associates, LLC moved into its beautiful new facility at 1109 Pithon Street where the firm continues to grow and provide new services to its existing family of clients and those new clients that join the family daily.
