If we have not already had the pleasure of meeting, please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Wendy Manard. I am a personal injury lawyer with a firm based in New Orleans, Louisiana, and in Southern California. I am a native of New Orleans and have lived in the New Orleans area most of my life. I also spent ten years in California. I am a member of the California Bar as well. I double majored at the University of California in Santa Barbara, where I ran cross country and track, and I graduated from Tulane Law School. Before law school, I was a special ed public school teacher. The first two years of my legal career were focused on child advocacy. I am now a mother to an amazing boy. While I still do some pro bono work for abused children, my focus for the last ten years has been in helping injured adults and children through personal injury and auto accident law. I have obtained numerous multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts on behalf of my clients. When I became a lawyer, I vowed to use my law degree to help people. I feel that a life is best lived if it is spent helping others. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Feel free to follow me as I will periodically post helpful and relevant legal tips. I understand there are many lawyers, and if you chose me it is my privilege and honor to represent you.
