"While it was awful to see, that experience shaped my passion for this career."

Read a unique prespective from Michael Addison and Bailey Menetre of Ross & Yerger's Construction Practice Group about their partnership and the firsthand experience following a client's total-loss disaster. Read the article in the April 2022 issue of Insurance Journal.



Since our founding in 1860, Ross & Yerger has served our clients, striving to make a difference in their lives. Initially led by four generations of the Yerger family, our firm has experienced record growth and excellence in service throughout the years.


But it hasn't always been smooth sailing. During our 160 years of business, the Ross & Yerger team has weathered challenges, economic setbacks, and a constantly shifting marketplace. But we've done so with a sense of optimism, selflessness, and resolve that James Ross and Edward Yerger instilled in the business on Day-One. 

For over 160 years, our team has seen – and written policies for - just about everything. 


In 2002, a group of Ross & Yerger employees purchased the company from the Yerger family. 


As an employee-owned agency, our teams have an unwavering commitment to meeting your needs first, not those of stockholders or investors.

Beginning in 2007, Ross & Yerger opened offices in Louisiana, with an office in Baton Rouge and, later, New Orleans.
