Mr. Larue is admitted to practice in Louisiana, Florida and before the United States Supreme Court. During over 40 years of law practice, Mr. Larue represented both defendants and plaintiffs in civil litigation. After successfully mediating several thousand cases, he realized that a large number of cases could not settle because of confusion and fear of the ramifications of the lien/reimbursements rights by non-mediating parties, especially Medicare, Medicaid & Group Health Plans. While continuing to mediate on a regular basis, he has concentrated his professional time on studying, writing and speaking on issues surrounding the Federal lien issues including the Medicare Secondary Payer Act and its effect on personal injury and damage claims. He has given numerous lectures and prepared numerous articles pertaining to Federal and State lien resolution issues. He co-authored “Medicaid, ERISA and Other Liens Against Personal Injury Recoveries,” Louisiana Bar Journal, Vol. 51, Spring 2004. His article, “Are Medicare Set-Asides Legally Mandated in Personal Injury Settlements?” was published in the Louisiana Bar Journal, Vol. 62, No. 6, May 2015. Mr. Larue has authored several articles on other lien/reimbursement issues including ERISA, Medicaid and the rights of Medicare Part C Plans. He is often consulted by attorneys and adjusters on lien resolution/reimbursement issues. He and his staff work very closely with CMS and others on lien resolution issues involved in personal injury class action claims. He is an Adjunct professor at Tulane University Law School on negotiation and mediation advocacy skills.
