U.S. Senators Bill Cassidy, and John Kennedy recently welcomed President Trump’s appointment of Lafayette Attorney Frank X. Neuner Jr. to the Board of Directors of the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). The LSC provides legal assistance to low-income Americans across the nation.
“Frank Neuner’s extensive work ensuring low-income individuals in Louisiana have access to legal services makes him an excellent choice for this position,” said Dr. Cassidy. “His service to his community is driven by his belief that without access to competent legal assistance and protection, those in need will never grow to trust our justice system. I look forward to voting for his confirmation.”
“Frank is an experienced attorney and a managing partner in a successful law firm. Throughout his career, he has held firm to the belief that those in need deserve legal assistance regardless of their financial circumstances. He is the perfect fit for this position,” said Senator Kennedy.
Neuner is a graduate of Louisiana State University Law School. He has served as chair of the Louisiana Public Defendant Board from 2008 to 2013. During that time, he led the effort to create legislation to increase access to defense council for low-income individuals. Neuner welcomes this appointment and will continue to advocate for low-income individuals through his involvement in local and national programs.
