In 1995, a Human Rights Watch Report revealed unacceptable practices and human rights violations within Louisiana's Juvenile Justice System; this was the year Gail Grover entered law school.  Three years later, she graduated from law school and became a lawyer.

 

Since then, Judge Grover has spent the subsequent 20 years deeply involved in system reform, working collaboratively to improve our local Juvenile Justice System. She stands ready and equipped to continue the work as your judge.
