State Representative Chris Roy, Jr. on the Importance of Fatherhood

Recently, I had the privilege of observing Mr. Chris Roy, Jr. handle a complex family law matter.  One of our LaDads members sought out his services and acquired an impressive result.  Mr. Roy’s performance and competence was exceptional.  I was a little saddened to learn that he will not run for re-election for House District Seat 25 but the following statement from Mr. Roy demonstrates his dedication to his family:


 “My youngest child will be in the 7th Grade and my other two children are in college. At this stage of my life, it is more important for me to see my son become a young man, attend his ball games and experience the activities I was able to experience with my other children. Simply put, I don’t want to look back in a few years and regret missing some of a father’s most cherished memories because I was in Baton Rouge attending a sub-committee hearing.”

I am not often impressed with politicians (or lawyers) but Mr. Roy is one of the finest examples of integrity the public wants out of government and the legal profession.  Though he will be missed in Baton Rouge, there are just some things in life that are too important to miss out on.  I think he is one of the best attorneys I have ever met and obviously a fine example of a father as well.

I sincerely hope that Mr. Roy considers running for Judge in the future.
