ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Verity

WHERE I COME FROM

   I am a proud native of Sabine Parish, Louisiana, raised in Many. As the daughter of a journalist, early on I learned to listen to both sides of the story and weigh all the facts. My mother, an educator, taught me empathy for those who struggle in life and how to think outside the box to find good solutions to help people reach their potential.

   After graduation from Many High School in 2003, I got a Business degree from LSU in Baton Rouge. For four years I worked in the Louisiana Attorney General's office under both Richard Ieyoub and Charles Foti, assisting the state's top prosecutors. During college, I also interned for Sen. Mary Landrieu in Washington, D.C.

   At Loyola University College of Law in New Orleans, in addition to earning my Juris Doctorate Cum Laude, I was Head Teaching Assistant for Research and Writing. During law school, I was also the Maritime Law Journal Substance and Citation Editor, a member of the St. Thomas More Inn of Court, and a judicial intern for Federal Magistrate Mary Milloy in Houston, where I drafted an opinion affirmed by the U.S. Southern District of Texas, Fifth Circuit.

A STRONG CAREER

   I have successfully handled thousands of cases across Louisiana, starting as an Orleans Parish Public Defender in New Orleans, then moving on to other prominent Louisiana firms. Every step of the journey eventually led me back home to Sabine Parish, where for several years I have had thriving law practices in Many and Shreveport. I am gratified the countless late nights and long weekends I've put in on behalf of clients have earned multiple peer-nominated awards naming me a "Rising Star Super Lawyer," a national honor earned by only 2.5% of attorneys. Though it is humbling to be recognized by one's peers, there is no reward greater than being in the courtroom and making sure justice is served fairly and humanely. It is truly my passion. 

A HEART TO SERVE

   If you join me on this journey, I promise faithfulness to the Constitution, independence, impartiality, and my utmost integrity on the bench. I promise professional competence without regard to partisan interests or fear of criticism. I promise a deep commitment to Due Process of Law, as well as the practice of fair, accurate, and humane criminal justice. I believe rehabilitative sentencing is a helpful tool in appropriate, non-violent cases, and I promise to uphold transparency and equity in the Justice System.  

   I humbly ask for your support during this campaign and your vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Together we can build a bright future for the 11th Judicial District.
