About me

Hablo Espanol, 10 Years Experience in Immigration, Personal Injury and Worker's Compensation.


I am a resident of Lafayette, Louisiana, and I graduated from St. Thomas More High School. I attended Louisiana State University and Loyola University-New Orleans School of Law.  During law school, I served as President for the Loyola chapter of the Association of Women Law Students, Treasurer of the International Law Society, and was actively involved in the Spanish Law Association, the Public Interest Law Association, and the St. Thomas More Association.  I have over ten years of legal experience in the areas of Immigration, Worker’s Compensation, and Personal Injury.  In 2014, I was voted a Top Lawyer in Acadiana in the areas of Worker’s Compensation and Immigration.  I also have taught continuing legal education classes to other lawyers in the area of Immigration Law.  I enjoy being a lawyer because the job is never boring, and I get to help people.  In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling, and spending time with her husband and two children. I am fluent in Spanish.
