Camille Saltz Babin
After receiving my J.D., magna cum laude, in 1996 from Southern University, I clerked for two years for Judge Marc Amy of the Louisiana Third Circuit Court of Appeal. I worked for a Lafayette firm and then a Houma firm focusing on family law before opening my own practice in 2004.
I believe in helping my clients use alternative dispute resolution techniques to resolve legal issues such as divorce in a cooperative way whenever possible. Courtroom litigation can be financially and emotionally draining, while methods like negotiation, mediation and collaborative law empower parties to come to an agreement tailored to meet their specific needs, rather than being subjected to decisions by a third party judge. However, when litigation is necessary to protect your best interests, I have the experience, knowledge and skill it takes to advocate for you effectively and zealously in court.
In addition to my law practice, I am dedicated to helping families in my community through active involvement in civic service and church affiliated organizations providing a range of family- and child-related services. I served as a board member and volunteer for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Terrebonne, an organization of volunteers appointed by the Court in child protection cases, and a Life Member of Junior Auxiliary of Houma, a local chapter of a non-profit service organization for women who share a desire to improve their community through service. I live in Houma, with my husband, Troy, and our two children.
