A Chicago native, Judith Wenger recently located to Hammond after living
in New Orleans for 34 years. The law is her second career. She worked
in printing and educational publishing for decades, while earning a BS
in communication science from Loyola, and an MA in composition and rhetoric
from Miami University. Judith earned her JD from Loyola College of Law
in 2006, and was admitted to the bar on the auspicious date of Friday
the 13th, in October 2006.
Judith clerked for then-chief judge of the Eastern District of New Orleans,
the Honorable Ginger Berrigan. After a couple years of law practice, she
served for three years as executive director of the Louisiana Civil Justice
Center, a non-profit that provides legal information and resources to
low-income, the elderly, and disaster-affected Louisianans.
In addition to her work at Anderson and Boutwell, with the full support
of the firm, Judith staffs a monthly booth at the Hammond Farmer’s
Market, offering pro bono legal information, resources, and notarization.
She also serves on the board of the Friends of Sims Library at SLU, both
as her way to contribute to her new community.
