Claude F. Reynaud III is a partner in the firm’s New Orleans office, where he specializes in representing both residential and commercial policyholders in a wide range of property loss claims and first-party property insurance disputes and litigation.
Prior to joining McClenney, Moseley & Associates in 2021, Claude spent his first 13+ years of practice as an “AV-Preeminent”-rated® defense attorney and commercial litigator representing a wide variety of corporate defendants, businesses and insurance companies, including, most recently, in the context of first-party property insurance claims and disputes, specializing particularly in complex insurance defense litigation and its attendant motion practice, both at the trial level and at all appellate levels of both state and federal court.
Relying upon his prior extensive experience representing and defending property insurance companies, Claude now offers a unique perspective and an aggressive yet calculated approach to representing the policyholders who have suffered catastrophic property losses through no fault of their own, including from hurricanes, tropical storms, hail, flood, and fire.
Claude received his Juris Doctorate from Tulane University School of Law in May 2007, and he received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Virginia in May 2002 as a graduate of UVA’s Woodrow Wilson School of Government and Foreign Affairs.
A native of Baton Rouge, LA, Claude currently lives in New Orleans with his wife, Erin, and their three daughters, Bailey, Brooks and Stafford. When not working, Claude enjoys playing sports, coaching his daughters’ sports teams, being outdoors, going to the beach, watching LSU and local sports, and spending time with his family and friends.
