S. Beaux Jones

Louisiana Department of Justice


 

Areas of Practice:

Environmental Law, Coastal Law, Environmental Crimes Prosecution, Administrative Law.


Favorite BRBA project or event:

Softball tournament.


Mentor / hero:

Like many lawyers, I would love to say Atticus Finch, but then I read Go Set a Watchman.


Whether you want to call it a mentor, I think I speak for the bulk of the BRBA when I say that:

I am a better person and lawyer for knowing Cheney Joseph. 


The part of my job I do best is:

Being able to sleep at night. As the regulating entity in most of our cases, I am afforded the perspective of being able to see the good and bad on both sides of the issues.


What most people don't know about me:

I used to have a full head of hair.


Family:

My amazingly talented wife, Emilie Bahr, and my very new son, Hudson, who was born on April 4.


Latest pursuit:

Fatherhood.


Pet peeve:

Arguments that are either read or begun with the phrase, "This is a case about . . . ."


Best thing about being a lawyer:

Having a desire to do what is right and the expectation of those around you that you will do just that.

If you could be anyone else for a day, who would you be?

The Honorable Judge Holdridge. He just seems like he is always having a great time.

Favorite food or restaurant:

Zippy's Chips & Queso without question.

Best vacation:

Amsterdam 2014. Seriously, for the bikes.

What was the turning point that made you decide to become an attorney:

I wanted to move home and offer whatever I could to the crisis that is facting coastal Louisiana, and I couldnt' cut it in the sciences.

If I had more time, I would:

Ride my bike every morning and every afternoon.

Community involvement:

Immediate past executive director and president of Bike Baton Rouige; founding-board member of Bike Walk Louisiana; member of the Louisiana Complete Streets Advisory Committee and the East Baton Rouge Complete Streets Citizens' Advisory Committee.

Favorite law school memory:

Barrister's Bowl V . . . Gold Team 4 Life.

Education:

B.A. Davidson College, 2008; J.D./D.C.L. LSU 2011.

Suggestions for young lawyers:

Work hard and make yourself uncomfortable.
