Loren Shanklin Fleshman
Loren Shanklin Fleshman obtained her Juris Doctor and Graduate Diploma in Civil Law from Louisiana State University in 2010. She is licensed to practice in all Louisiana State and Federal Courts as well as the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Loren graduated from Louisiana State University receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Education with a concentration in History. Prior to attending Louisiana State University Law School, Loren was a middle school teacher in East Baton Rouge Parish. Although she loved teaching, Loren made the decision to go to Law School in 2007.
As a law student, she held various elected positions in the Student Bar Association and Phi Alpha Delta. During law school, she helped to raise thousands of dollars for several community organizations including, Volunteers In Public Schools and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. In her last semester, Loren was one of four student attorneys that went before the Louisiana Supreme Court as amicus curiae. She graduated with honors from LSU Law.
"She has secured millions of dollars in settlements and judgements for her clients."
The day after being sworn in to become a licensed Louisiana attorney, Loren was enrolled into a wrongful death case with John H Smith and took her first witness in open court; this case resulted in a multi-million dollar judgment. This case early in her career continues to inspire her to seek justice for those in need. Since that time, Loren has secured millions of dollars in settlements and judgments for her clients.
Loren has continued her leadership role in the legal field, being elected by her fellow attorneys to the Young Lawyers Section of the Baton Rouge Bar Association, the Board of the Baton Rouge Bar Association, and the Young Lawyers Division Louisiana State Bar Association. To date, she continues to serve these Bar Associations as well as her community. Through her experiences, it is shown that Loren is motivated by helping others and brings this passion to work every day.
When Loren is not working, she enjoys reading, painting, scrapbooking, spending time with her family and friends, and watching LSU football and basketball.
Loren is more than a personal injury attorney; she is a leader, a teacher, and a volunteer.
