Lafourche Parish District Attorney's Office

Our senior citizens are valued members of our community. In addition to prosecuting crime, the Lafourche Parish District Attorney’s Office is committed to serving our senior citizens through community education efforts. Last year, we launched the first annual Senior Sources, which is an in-person community education event designed to share resources with our senior citizens.

Unfortunately, the spread of the COVID-19 virus has made it unsafe at this time to gather in large groups, so we had to cancel this year’s in-person presentation. As we are committed to providing educational opportunities to prevent our senior citizens from becoming victims of crime, we will offer Senior Sources online this year to address current topics and scams. New information to protect our senior citizens from becoming crime victims is available under the Senior Sources tab on our website, lpda.org/senior-sources/.

As always, our team is available by phone to answer any questions or to provide additional information on these current topics. If you would like to speak directly to the special prosecutor assigned to handle all cases dealing with elderly law in our office, you can do so by calling our office at (985) 447-2003 and asking for Assistant District Attorney Lisa Pinho.

We look forward to seeing all of you in the future.

Kristine Russell
District Attorney
