Josh Clayton is an injury attorney with the right experience and skills to get you what you deserve. A lawyer who cares about his clients. A general practice that helps good people with real problems.

Josh Clayton, a Byrd High School alumnus, graduated with a degree in accounting from LSU in 2002, then from LSU Law School in May of 2006. From 2004-2006, Josh clerked for the McKernan Law Firm in Baton Rouge, learning how to represent the interests of personal injury clients.

From 2006 to 2008, Josh gained valuable negotiation and trial experience as an associate attorney at the Hammond law firm of Anderson & Boutwell, where he fought for plaintiffs in personal injury and workers’ compensation litigation. “I run my practice just as Tom Anderson and Gary Boutwell run theirs: efficiently, ethically, and fully aware that my clients are my most valuable assets. I always take care of my clients.”

After moving back to his hometown and opening a general practice in 2008, Josh joined the Bossier Parish Public Defender Office on a part-time basis, spending four years in criminal courtrooms defending indigent men and women facing all types of criminal charges. Since 2013, Josh has grown his private practice to solely focus on serious personal injury matters and defending clients charged with criminal offenses.

Josh is a member of the Shreveport Bar Association, the Bossier Bar Association, the Harry V. Booth Judge Henry A. Politz Inn of Court, and the Louisiana Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Josh and his staff were amazing! They kept in constant contact with me throughout the whole process, keeping me updated and informed of everything. I highly highly recommend Josh and his staff.

Tammy – February 24th, 2017

The Clayton Law Firm did exactly what was presented to me during my consultation. The staff kept me informed of developments and I was able to view all documents anytime online at my convenience. Communication was key and I appreciated always being able to talk to Joshua or his staff at anytime of the day. I was able to focus on my own scheduled Doctor visits and therapy, while he moved progress with my personal injury case to an agreed settlement. A law firm I highly recommend to Family and Friends who are seeking an Attorney that cares about your health and recovery above all.

I’m very pleased with the efforts off this firm. They took the stress off my back. Josh handled all conversation and contact with the other side. I’m also very pleased with the professionalism. Josh and his team keep you update with your case the whole time. I would highly recommend The Clayton Law Firm.


My law practice is focused on three core values:

    1. An Insurance company should honor the policy it issued.
    2. A Government should respect the rights of its citizens.
    3. A citizen owes a duty to his community.

I fight for my clients against powerful insurance companies and I defend my clients when the government levies charges against them. My clients and I are citizens of northwest Louisiana, and the city of Shreveport has given much to me. In turn, I do my best to give back to my community.
