Errin Green is a native of Shreveport, Louisiana, and a 2012 Cum Laude graduate of Caddo Magnet High School. Errin attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where she was an Honors College Graduate and received her bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a concentration in Pre-Law.
In August 2016, Errin began law school at Southern University Law Center. During law school, Errin was a Senior Editor for the Journal of Race, Gender, and Poverty, a Research Assistant for Professor Okechukwu Oko, and an intern for the Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus and the Louisiana Senate Bureau.
In May 2019, Errin graduated Magna Cum Laude from Southern University Law Center. Shortly after, she began working at the 15th Judicial District Public Defenders Office in Lafayette Parish where she represented indigent defendants charged with felony offenses. Errin is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc and the Acadiana Inns of Court.
A defining moment in her career was when, as a public defender, she represented an 18-year old high school senior who was charged with a serious felony offense. Her client was arrested while at school, which led to many consequences, including, expulsion, delay in graduation, and issues with potential athletic eligibility in college. Despite the allegations, he maintained his innocence, and attorney Green believed him. Attorney Green zealously fought for him, and eventually, the Assistant District Attorney, dismissed all his pending charges. Thanks to her efforts, her client enrolled in college as a student-athlete and became a peer mentor for youth in his neighborhood dealing with the same life struggles he endured. "His story serves as a constant reminder to always be a zealous advocate for those who cannot fight for themselves" (Attorney Green).
Attorney Errin Green has lived in Lafayette, LA for a total of six years and considers Cajun County her second home. Her hobbies include running, attending live music, sporting and comedy events, doing DIY projects, traveling, being a foodie, and watching baking/ competition shows. She also likes to devote her free time to giving back to her community. She reads to local children, speaks at various organizations, participates in give-back events, and competes in running in community marathons.
