Geya has been practicing law in Louisiana for 12 years and is a former Assistant District Attorney for Caddo Parish. As a prosecutor, she was a supervisor that handled high grade felony cases, an array of violent crimes and high profile cases. She was also appointed by the Louisiana Supreme Court to serve as a temporary ad hoc City Court Judge. She believes the most important aspect of being a good lawyer is being a great listener, an effective communicator and always going above and beyond to assist her clients. She is proud of being a trial attorney and is most comfortable in a courtroom standing in front of a Judge or Jury.
