Danny Poolson Jr. and Carisa G. Oden
Firm Founders

After an injury, many of our clients want to know how they’re going to make it. It’s a very scary situation to be in: to be stuck at home hurt and wondering how they’re going to make it day to day, how they’re going to pay the bills.

It’s especially hard for railroad workers. Almost all of them love their jobs and are the sole breadwinners for their family. They’re the ones bringing home the money to take care of their kids’ schools, food, clothing, the house note, etc. So an accident at work can be particularly debilitating, life-changing, and painful.

But you don’t have to stumble through this ordeal alone, without any resources or guidance. We’re here to help.

More Than a Law Firm

At Poolson Oden, our railroad and serious injury attorneys put the needs of their clients first.  Our trial attorneys focus on helping workers and individuals who have been seriously injured or hurt.  Our approach of investigating all the facts, learning and understanding all the medicine, and mastering the law, allows us to give our clients the best possible result for their individual case.


The law, especially railroad injury law, is complicated and can be confusing to the untrained eye. Poolson Oden provides comprehensive and easy-to-understand counsel. Our office knows how overwhelming the legal process can be, especially when you are under an enormous amount of stress. This is why our goal is to help you understand your rights and the issues affecting your case.


We are attorneys, yes, but we never forget that our clients are people with unique emotions and values.


We keep you involved and personally guide you in making important decisions about your case, calmly and effectively. We let you know what is going on at every stage and explain every small detail so that you are in charge.


Do you feel that you have been wronged but have no idea where to start?


We welcome the opportunity to serve you if you have been injured as a result of someone else’s fault or negligence.  We are licensed in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, and have helped injured individuals throughout the Gulf South and across the United States.
