Julie is a rarity. She was at the top of her law school class when she graduated in 2003. She was a member of the Law Review Board and received the highest grade in nearly every law school class she took. With her sterling academic credentials, Julie could have immediately started at a big firm and spent the rest of her career specializing in one area of the law.

Instead, Julie spent the next thirteen years working in every area of state law as an elbow clerk for Justice Jeannette Theriot Knoll at the Louisiana Supreme Court. Her knowledge of the Civil Code is encyclopedic—extraordinary both in its breadth and its depth. Her institutional knowledge about the inner workings of the Supreme Court is unmatched.

After Justice Knoll retired at the end of 2016, the Third Circuit snapped Julie up. She spent the next four years working as a Research Attorney and then, ultimately, as Administrative Counsel for the entire Court. Over the last seventeen years, Julie has evaluated and improved on legal arguments made by thousands of advocates across the state in assisting the justices and judges she so admirably served. She is eager to use her tremendous knowledge and her many talents to help you put your most persuasive “foot” forward.  

Julie is admitted to the Louisiana Bar.
