Jeffrey G. Lagarde
Jeff obtained his Juris Doctorate from Mississippi College School of Law in 2008 where he received Dean’s List honors as well as the AmJur award for the highest scores in Civil Law Property.
Mr. Lagarde’s legal career began as a prosecutor in the Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s office in 2008. In his four years as a prosecutor, Jeff handled various case types and successfully argued before the Louisiana Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal before being assigned his own division as a felony prosecutor. During his time at the DA’s office, he tried over 200 judge trials, argued countless motions, and tried all manner of crimes to verdict before juries.
After four years as a prosecutor, Mr. Lagarde accepted a position with a civil defense litigation firm located in the New Orleans metro area. There he litigated cases throughout the state of Louisiana on behalf of motor vehicle manufacturers, insurance companies, trucking and bus companies, as well as other business entity types.
Jeff joined Ross F. Lagarde, APLC in July 2017. When he has time outside of the legal arena and being a husband and father, Jeff enjoys fishing, working on and rebuilding his Jeep CJ7, watching LSU football, and competing in intramural sports. He also makes a concerted effort to return to his alma mater in Bay St. Louis, to catch at least one St. Stanislaus football game each year.
