My name is Christy Crotwell. Ever since I can remember I have always been fascinated with the law. Watching shows with my grandmother such as Perry Masson, In the Heat of the Night, and the very early years of Law and Order introduced me to the power of the law. While these shows present fictitious situations, they spurred my imagination. I was drawn to the legal world! And, I made it happen by becoming a Certified Paralegal.
I love the work that I do as a paralegal – whether it is helping clients figure out solutions to their problems, researching interesting concepts, or learning about the significant medical issues our clients face and just being there to listen. My work is truly rewarding and everything I imagined it being.
I am ecstatic to have joined my friend and former co-worker, Loyd Bourgeois, in his practice. I have known and worked with Loyd since 2006. I help with all aspects of his practice from dealing with Social Security to working directly with clients to understand their situations. I know together we will accomplish great success for our clients!
Outside of my work, I have been married for over 15 years to my high school sweetheart, Ronnie, and we have two beautiful children, Ronin and Emilie. We live in Luling and love our tight knit community. I enjoy sewing, baking, cooking, DIY projects, and just spending quality time with my family and friends. I lead my daughter’s Girl Scout Cadette Troop and actively serve as the Publicity Representative for the St. Charles Parish Girl Scout Community Unit Board. I started and coached the initial First Lego League program in our community, which is a program designed to help our children research and develop solutions to real-world problems such as food-safety, recycling, energy efficiency, etc. using Lego Mindstorm robotic technology. St. Charles Parish Girl Scouts now have 3 First Lego League teams modeled and built off our success. My volunteering within the Girl Scout Community Unit over the last 8 years has been very spiritually fulfilling. I also enjoy watching my son participate in a variety of athletic endeavors including running and fishing. While not as heavily involved in his activities, I am very proud of his growth as a young man and his accomplishments.
