Pepper Roussel-by-Gus Bennett-20200201-4372-2048px

To provide legal and consulting services to underserved farmers, food entrepreneurs, and agri-business owners

we are with you from soup to nuts


A couple of years ago, I started a CBD business. I quickly learned just how difficult it was to navigate Louisiana’s confusing ,and ever-changing, hemp laws. Pepper has been an indispensable key to my small business’s success. From regulatory requirements, law changes, and general small business recommendations, Pepper has made my life so much easier through this journey. Thank you so much for always being there!

Flood Proof Project

The purpose of the Project is to increase access to civil legal help for low-income disaster victims to resolve heir property problems and home ownership disputes in the wake of Louisiana’s catastrophic flooding in August 2016.

During the 18-month project, attorneys receive a $10,000 stipend, free access to case management software and legal research programs, training, mentorship, and court shadowing opportunities.
