Mallory, a native of Louisiana, is a licensed Louisiana attorney, who joined the Vinson Law team in 2019. Mallory received her Juris Doctor from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law in 2017. In law school, Mallory was an active member of Loyola’s Moot Court Program and was elected to the executive board for Honor Board. Also, during law school, Mallory worked as a law clerk for Acadiana Legal Service Corporation (“ALSC”). ALSC is a federally funded law firm, which provides free legal representation for senior citizens, veterans, and individuals whose income is at, or below, the poverty line.
In 2015, Mallory created a student-run research organization benefitting public interest legal organizations throughout the state of Louisiana. For her work in developing the program, and for her proven dedication to public interest and poverty law, Mallory received Loyola’s Gillis Long Poverty Law Center’s Public Service Award in 2016.
In 2018, Mallory was named one of Loyola University New Orleans College of Law’s “Graduates for Justice,” a competitive post-graduate program, which enables participants to begin working in legal service organizations in Louisiana while awaiting bar exam results. After passing the bar, Mallory was recognized by the Louisiana Supreme Court as an attorney qualified to represent children in abuse and neglect cases. Within her first three months of practice, Mallory made over 150 court appearances in jurisdictions all over the state of Louisiana; in fact, her very first appearance occurred less than 24 hours after being sworn into practice.
As the proud granddaughter of two WWII Navy veterans, the grandniece of a veteran of Patton’s 3rd Army, the grandniece of an Air Force Eagle Colonel, and the great-granddaughter of a WWI Army veteran, Mallory is passionate about the work she does at Vinson Law. In her spare time, Mallory likes to go running, cheer on the LSU Tigers, and spend time with her dog, “Buddy.”
