Personal experience with racial injustice infused with an awareness of the judicial system motivates Mr. Christopher Szeto. Mr. Szeto recognized law as his calling from an early age. This internal drive led him to volunteer for numerous courts across the country. Mr. Szeto’s dedication to courts in Louisiana, New York, and Massachusetts showed him the endless caseloads lawyers face. Inspired by Charles Houston, who was key in disrupting the Jim Crow era, Mr. Szeto set off for law school.
Mr. Szeto graduated from The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. He majored in Philosophy, Political Science, and History. Mr. Szeto not only pursued his Juris Doctorate with a focus on civil law, but also graduated with top marks from Loyola Law School New Orleans. He earned 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.
After joining the Louisiana Bar Association, Mr. Szeto began working at a Metairie based law firm, and was introduced to Road Home cases. He handled an enormous amount of these Road Home lawsuits, where the government looked for loopholes to take money away from people after Hurricane Katrina. Seeing the impact that the court process has on the lives of Katrina survivors made Mr. Szeto realize he could help people more with his own practice.
The Law Office of Christopher Szeto has been in operation ever since. Initially focused only on helping those sued in Road Home cases, Mr. Szeto has expanded to help as many Louisiana residents as he can to not be exploited by the system. Whenever there are any problems with the law, something as simple as waiting can cost a case. Book a free consultation at (504) 226-2292 to learn more about what can help or hurt in legal situations.
