E Eric Guirard began practicing law in 1987. He founded E Eric Guirard Injury Lawyers in 1994 with one partner and two  secretaries.  The  firm  quickly  grew  into  the largest personal  injury  firm   in  Baton   Rouge   and  one  of  the largest   in   Louisiana  and   the   United   States.  E’s  firm eventually  employed  18  attorneys  and  65  employees.  E Eric  Guirard Injury Lawyers has represented over 30,000 clients   for   their  legal   needs,  employed   hundreds  of employees,  and  added millions of dollars  to the tax base of  East Baton Rouge parish and the  state of Louisiana. In 2000, the   firm   also   constructed   a  10,000  square  foot Italian Renaissance office building on  Government Street and I-10 in Baton Rouge which has become a Baton Rouge landmark    known    as the    “Gateway   to  Downtown”. 


E  was born  deep in the  heart of Cajun  country in South Louisiana  in St. Martinville, Louisiana on July  13, 1958.  He grew   up  in  Baton Rouge  where  his   father,  Gerald   “Jay-Boy”   Guirard   was   a successful  businessman  having  founded  Mid  South Door Company in 1962. E was graduated from Catholic  High  School  in  Baton Rouge  in  1976.  He   then  received   a  Bachelor  of  Arts  degree  in Broadcast  Journalism  and  Political  Science  from  LSU in 1981 and a  Juris  Doctorate from the LSU Law  Center  in  1987.  


E  was  also a   professional  touring stand-up comic  having performed  under  the  stage  name  of “Cajun E”.  In  1985  he ran for Lieutenant Governor for the  state of Louisiana  with a platform to eliminate the office  of Lieutenant  Governor  which  he  saw   (and still sees)   as a  useless  or at least  superfluous  expenditure   of  taxpayer  dollars.  His campaign  slogan was,  “Hire Me To Fire Me”. He finished in 5th  place  with 5% of the vote and  almost  70,000 votes statewide.


E has also  written  and recorded a compilation  of rap, reggae  and  ballad  songs   entitled   “Dephyphenate – American  Conservative Rap”.   The   CD   is    a   collection   of   7   rap  songs,   1  reggae   song    a    ballad   that   espouse  E’s  conservative/libertarian views  (E calls  it Conservatarianism) on various political topics  of the day.  E has  also written  a country  music CD. E is the lead vocalist on this CD which he hopes to release  in   the  summer   of  2015.  


E  is  additionally  a health  enthusiast  –  he  is  a  runner,  weight  lifter, basketball  player,   tennis player and practitioner of “Yoglates”. E has organized and participated in Sunday  Night Basketball – a 10 man   “pick up”  full-court basketball  game which  has  been  played every   Sunday   night  for the last 37 years! E is divorced  with two wonderful, gorgeous and brilliant children,  Eason  and  Eden both  of whom attend  Episcopal  High School – because it is the only school in Baton Rouge that starts with the letter “E”!
