Leslie Carbajal

Leslie joined Burns Charest in 2022 after spending many years honing her complex litigation skills as part of a team on a mass environmental tort case.

She graduated from Loyola University of New Orleans School of Law and completed her LL.M. in Taxation at the University of Washington School of Law. During law school, she interned with the Honorable Fredericka Homberg Wicker at the Louisiana Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal working on a project for the Louisiana Sentencing Commission that compared the Louisiana Criminal Sentencing Guidelines to other states in the region with the goal of drafting legislation. She also volunteered in Louisiana’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program for two years, assisting low-income and elderly residents with the preparation and filing of their income tax returns.

Prior to law school, Leslie obtained her Master’s in Political Science from the University of New Orleans, where she wrote her thesis on voter turnout in Federal elections.

Leslie is a riding member of the Krewe of Muses and proud member of Who Dat Nation. She and her spouse live in Metairie with their two dogs, Chicory and Finn.
