In this episode, Megan talks with New Orleans criminal defense attorney and victim advocate Aubrey Harris.
New Orleans criminal defense attorney Aubrey Harris focuses her practice on low-level criminal cases, and spends about 50% of her time also participating in victim advocacy. Much of her work revolves around human trafficking and helping victims of this difficult system get the resources and the defense they need to change their lives. Aubrey also spends much of her time partnering with The Covenant House – particularly for their annual “sleep-out,” which allows attendees to raise money to combat homelessness.
Aubrey’s advice to young attorneys just starting out in the legal field: Don’t take every case that comes your way. Figure out what you’re passionate about and use what sets you apart to your advantage.
