Profile

In the many years since graduating from law school, Renee has developed her legal skills as well as her life skills. She practiced for several years in general casualty litigation, worker’s compensation, employer’s liability, products liability, environmental law and property and subrogation. After taking a few years off to raise a family and chair various fundraisers and philanthropic endeavors, she returned to the practice of law with maturity, life experiences, a renewed enthusiasm and perspective. She understands the importance of working within a budget, efficiently and effectively. And while she is responsive to her clients’ goals, she guides them, when practical, in more economical or mindful directions to reach their goals.

Renee was selected for inclusion in the 2016 “Top Lawyer” in New Orleans Magazine.

In addition to raising three children, Renee enjoys yoga, tennis, cooking and gardening. She is also an active volunteer with the Second Harvester Food Bank of New Orleans.
