Representing public and private sector construction industry clients for over 50 years.


Wray & Associates is the continuation of a law practice founded in 1965 by W.P. Wray, Jr. (deceased in 2017.), now managed and operated by Russel W. Wray.

Wray & Associates continues to practice in the fields of construction law and civil litigation throughout Louisiana.

Our practice is statewide in both State and Federal court, as well as arbitration and mediation.


We are members of the Louisiana Associated General Contractors, Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., Louisiana Asphalt Pavement Association, American Bar Association, and the ABA Forum on Construction Law.


We have authored numerous published works and educated the construction industry in various settings by presenting informal classes, as well as lecturing by invitation at Louisiana State University and other institutions.


Our experience also includes drafting legislation and representing construction industry groups as amicus curie in Louisiana courts.

The attorneys of Wray & Associates have managed issues, whether in litigation, arbitration, mediation, or less formal negotiated settlements, for general contractors, subcontractors, trade associations, suppliers, owners, sureties, design professionals, and individuals involving construction matters, as well as other matters for businesses and individuals unrelated to construction (zoning matters, tort suits, collections, franchise disputes, etc.) throughout Louisiana.


Construction Law is our Primary Focus!

  • Both public & private works projects

  • Construction Defects

  • Prompt Payment Disputes

  • Liens Privileges

  • Delay Claims

  • Surety Claims

  • Default & Termination Claims

  • Public Policy and Constitutional Law

Nullity of Contracts: What Now?

The St. Bernard Port Commission entered into a cooperative endeavor agreement with the Port of New Orleans in December of 2022 to operate a port facility in St. Bernard Parish. Now, St. Bernard Parish is claiming the agreement is null and void. (See links below.)

Wray & Associates through Louisiana Association of General Contractors will be hosting a webinar on September 20, 2023, to discuss the effects of nullity on construction contracts. If you are interested in participating, please get in touch with Lauren Fain at LAGC.
