Ross boasts a unique area of knowledge–electric utilities. For many years, he worked as outside corporate counsel for one of the nation’s largest electric distribution cooperatives. When asked to help solve the problem of rising insurance rates resulting from the large number of lawsuits being filed against it, he became an ALEC Certified Electric Lineman after four years of study and training. His commitment paid off, as that Company successfully defended against a great many cases involving line-related deaths and injuries. And its self-insurance program—which Ross helped to develop and manage—became a model program for other electric distribution companies in the State.
Ross' vast corporate experience translates into a healthy business development practice. To that end, he handles business entity development and formation, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, legal compliance, trademarks, copyrights, data retention and security, contracts, internal policies and procedures, employment, occupational licensing, litigation management, insurance defense litigation, and collections. He represents a diverse group of corporate clients, many of which are Louisiana-based manufacturers. He also works closely with the Louisiana Business & Technology Center and serves as a judge at its annual Venture Challenge. Ross also has extensive experience representing government agencies, having served in the roles of City Attorney, Prosecutor, Public Defender and Code Enforcement Prosecutor.
Ross is the proud father of twin girls. His wife, Tisha, is a long-time Nurse Practitioner at St. Elizabeth Physicians in Gonzales, Louisiana, and generally regarded as a leader in her field, having precepted most of the Nurse Practitioners working in the greater Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas.
