Title: Senior Attorney
Company: Lila Molaison Samuel, Attorney at Law
Location: Metairie, Louisiana, United States
Lila Molaison Samuel, Senior Attorney at Lila Molaison Samuel, Attorney at Law, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in divorce and family law.
Since 1991, Ms. Samuel’s practice has specialized in child custody, child support, and alimony cases. She took a non-traditional path to the law: while a student at Louisiana State University, Ms. Samuel married and started her family. After completing a Bachelor of Arts in history and political science, she put her education on hold, focusing on her children and exploring careers in other areas for several years. At the age of 36, Ms. Samuel earned her Juris Doctor from the Loyola University School of Law and became certified by the Louisiana Board of Legal Specialization.
Driven by her experiences as a parent and a commitment to protecting the rights and welfare of children in difficult cases, Ms. Samuel spent two years with the Louisiana Department of Public Welfare before establishing her practice. She cautions others considering work in child welfare and custody to consider their dedication to the specialty, as it is often more difficult and less lucrative than divorce law, and to be vigilant about self-care and protecting their mental health, as they will often be a party to traumatic events in clients’ lives. Ms. Samuel is a member of the Louisiana State Bar Association, the Jefferson County Bar Association, and the American Bar Association, where she sits on the Family Law Section. In recognition of her career record of outstanding practice, Ms. Samuel holds an AV Preeminent peer rating from Martindale-Hubbell and has been named a Louisiana Super Lawyer.
