Legal Experience

Rochelle’s career as a criminal prosecutor over the last nine years has centered around bringing justice to victims for some of the most atrocious and unspeakable crimes. She has built an outstanding record of criminal prosecution during her tenure with the St. Charles Parish District Attorney’s Office, where she has secured convictions through jury trials in murders, sex crimes against child victims, and other crimes of violence.  Rochelle has developed a reputation among fellow attorneys as being fair and professional while also ensuring that justice is served.

For over fourteen years, Rochelle has also obtained extensive civil litigation experience in areas including medical malpractice, insurance defense, family law, succession/estate law, personal injury and workers’ compensation, where she has represented clients through jury trials, bench trials, motion hearings and countless depositions. Rochelle has been admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court and has presented oral argument before the Louisiana Supreme Court, the Louisiana Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal and the Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeal.

Rochelle is an appointee to the Louisiana District Attorney’s Association ADA Board and over the last few years, she has actively participated in drafting/reviewing proposed legislation impacting criminal justice with the LDAA and other experienced prosecutors throughout Louisiana. In addition to her role with the ADA board, she has also been serving as a liaison for victim’s rights advocacy with the LDAA since April of 2023.


Rochelle is a member of the Rotary Club of St. Charles and previously served on the club’s board as the community service chairperson. She is an instructor with the P.O.S.T. Academy and has taught legal aspects and criminal law to police cadets for the last several years. In addition to her instruction with the P.O.S.T. Academy, Rochelle taught an annual estate planning class through the St. Charles Parish Community Education Program.
