In loving memory of my beautiful niece Roshawn you will always have a place in my heart. “Love You Ro”

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Roshawn will be truly missed. Keep the good memories of her in the forefront.

I was very saddened to see the news of Roshawn's passing. While we represented clients that were adverse to each other in the courtroom, she did not allow that opposition to prevent her from being warm, cooperative and tremendously professional. Her colleagues from the Louisiana Bar will miss her.
