Lafayette attorney Michelle Meaux-Breaux has announced her plans to seek the Division E seat for judge in the 15th Judicial District. The seat is currently held by the retiring Judge Herman Clause.
Currently a 15th JDC assistant district attorney and civil law lawyer, Breaux has 24 years experience as an attorney and co-founded the district's Juvenile Drug Court in 2002 and has worked closely with the Lafayette Parish School System for more than a decade, establishing a Truancy Court. Breaux has also served as an adjunct criminal justice professor at UL Lafayette.
"I ask the voters of Division E to carefully consider the qualifications of the candidates seeking this position on the court; examine the practical trial experience and knowledge of the law that each candidate possesses," Breaux says in a press release announcing her candidacy. "Most importantly, who by their actions exhibits the judicial integrity and judicial temperament appropriate to this position. I intend to bring Christian values, fairness, strength and wisdom to the bench when elected and most importantly to uphold the inalienable rights granted to every American as set forth in our state and federal constitutions. I would appreciate your vote and support on Nov. 4."
