Dick King is one of the pioneers in structured settlements in the Gulf Coast area. A Louisiana native , Dick accepted a position with the Humble Oil Company (now Exxon) in New Orleans before moving into private practice specializing in estate and employee benefits planning.

Always keenly interested in better ways of doing things, Dick was intrigued by the structured settlement concept and uniquely well positioned to spread the initial word about structures to attorneys on both sides of the aisle. Instrumental in persuading the Office of Risk Management for the State of Louisiana to adopt structures for the benefit of their claimants, Dick went on to develop a strong business in the energy and maritime sectors as well.

Associated with JMW for over 20 years, Dick's sense of humor and unfailing graciousness to his work, which has made him a distinct favorite of both clients and staff.
