From an early age, Mr. Szeto decided that legal work was his calling. He volunteered for a number of different courts across the country from a young age. He dedicated his time to courts in Louisiana, New York, and Massachusetts to gain an understanding of the varied situation a lawyer might face. Equipped with this knowledge and experience, Mr. Szeto graduated from Sewanee, The University of the South in Sewanee Tennessee, where he majored in Philosophy, Political Science, and History. Drawing on the incredible amount of experience his volunteer work had provided him, Mr. Szeto decided to pursue his Juris Doctorate, with a focus on civil law. He attended Loyola Law School right here in New Orleans and graduated with top marks. He gained membership in science and academic honor societies, allowing him to be mentored by and to mentor some of the top legal minds coming from Loyola Law.
Now equipped with both theoretical and practical knowledge, Mr. Szeto joined the Louisiana Bar Association. Mr. Szeto initially joined a Metairie based law firm, where he first heard about Road Home cases. During his time there, he handled an enormous amount of these Road Home cases. He personally saw the impact the impact they had on the lives of Hurricane Katrina victims, and decided that he could do more to help the victims if he struck out on his own.
Ever since then, Mr. Szeto has operated The Law Office of Christopher Szeto. Initially focused only on helping those sued in Road Home cases, he has since expanded his practice so as to help other Louisiana residents. In 2019, he added Mr. Ian Dunbar to the firm. In 2020, he added Ms. Shermin Khan. With these two additions, Mr. Szeto greatly increased the firm’s operational capacity, allowing him to continue focusing on Road Home cases, while also helping those struggling with other legal difficulties.
