Jazmine is a California native, but South Louisiana is home. Having moved around quite a bit, including living in Puerto Rico for some of her childhood, Jazmine truly values culture, diversity, nature and the outdoors. Jazmine is no stranger to hard work, either. Having been raised by a single mother of four children, all of whom have obtained college degrees, she learned the value of hard work and relentlessly pursuing goals. Her diverse background and unique life experiences translate into her work as an attorney and her personal life. She has managed heavy caseloads with impeccable work ethic while staying actively involved in her local bar association, church and community.

After graduating Southern University Law Center in 2015, where she served as the Student Bar Association President for the evening division for two years, Jazmine clerked for the Honorable Penelope Richard at the 38th JDC in Cameron Parish. She also worked as a bar prep mentor, mentoring law graduates and assisting them in preparation for the bar exam.

She went on to work for the Attorney General’s office in Lafayette as an Assistant Attorney General, where she practiced civil defense litigation. The majority of her practice was workers’ compensation, general torts litigation, subrogation and interventions, and premises liability.  Jazmine has successfully defended her clients through trial and has obtained several dismissals and favorable judgments on behalf of her clients. She has successfully negotiated many settlements and has successfully recovered money on behalf of her clients in subrogation and intervention suits.
