The Hon. Judge Frank E. LeMoine is a prominent judge and lawyer who has accrued 33 years in the field. During his early years, he graduated from high school and, after getting married and having children, decided to attend trade school to learn welding. Becoming certified as a welder, he welded for several major oil companies between 1972 and 1977 before suffering from a back injury, thus prompting him to discover another career path. He attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now known as the University of Louisiana at Lafayette), graduating summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in 1983. Subsequently, he graduated cum laude from Southern University and A&M College with a JD in 1986.
After obtaining a juris doctorate, Judge LeMoine began a private practice in law in Abbeville, Louisiana, in 986. In addition, he has been serving as a municipal judge in Kaplan, Louisiana, since 2003. Mentored by Darrell J. Hartman, who encouraged him to attend law school, Judge LeMoine values most the aid he has given individuals who have endured the same trials and tribulations as he did earlier in life. He notes that the only human entity that can stop an individual from reaching his or her goals is themselves, and one can accomplish anything if they dedicate themselves fully to their ambitions.
Admitted to the Louisiana State Bar Association in 1986, Judge LeMoine thereafter became admitted to practice law before the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana in 1987 and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in 1990.
Judge LeMoine has always been passionate about the law, and as a judge, he advises that one has to explain to others who fail to show up for a subpoena or jury duty that it is not only a responsibility, but also an honor to sit. Those who are currently in governmental positions of power have the ability to impact the next generation of legal professionals, as well as our society as a whole. Believing in the importance of democracy, he cites that it is integral for others to understanding how democracy came to be, what the underlying reasons for democracy are, what the purpose of democracy is, and what individual rights and responsibilities a civilian has in today’s era.
As a testament to his success, Judge LeMoine has accrued several accolades. A celebrated Marquis listee, he has been featured in close to 15 Who’s Who publications since 1992.
