At 38, Lindsey Valenti personifies poise under pressure. On any given day as the Chief Legal Counsel for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, Lindsey oversaw as many as 125 active law cases, over 50 public record requests, dozens of contracts, three in-house insurance companies, and answered directly to Sheriff Joe Lopinto. Yet, Lindsey remained undaunted by the heavy workload, and instead, she managed the legal affairs of this critical $186 million business effectively and effortlessly.       

A cum laude graduate of Loyola University, Lindsey went on to earn her law degree from Loyola College of Law. She began her law career with the Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Office, where she assisted trial counsel as they prepared to prosecute violent criminals. From there, Lindsey joined high-profile legal teams and strengthened her skills as a practical-minded, ever composed attorney who respects the law.


In one of Louisiana’s busiest courts, Lindsey Valenti will be a by-the-books, fair jurist who applies her expansive command of the law. Justice in Jefferson Parish will be rendered impartially and swiftly with Lindsey Valenti as Judge.
