Attorney Profile

The founder of the Newsom Law Firm, located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Amy E. Newsom has developed an excellent reputation as an employment law attorney during her relatively brief career. Providing representation exclusively to employers, she assists business owners in the area who are dealing with issues involving matters such as wrongful termination, retaliation, harassment and discrimination. Ms. Newsom is experienced with issues arising out of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and other federal and state statutes. She works with her clients to enact and maintain policies that are intended to minimize the risk of litigation, but if lawsuits are filed, she has extensive experience in providing defense representation.

A longtime resident of Baton Rouge, Ms. Newsom attended Louisiana State University as an undergraduate, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in psychology magna cum laude in 2001. After working for Disney Cruise Line, where she sailed the Caribbean and was involved in children's entertainment, she enrolled at the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2006. While in law school, she was a member of its Admiralty Moot Court team.

After graduation, Ms. Newsom spent several years with a local insurance defense firm before starting her own practice in 2013. She is admitted to practice before all Louisiana state courts. She is also active in a variety of professional organizations, including the Baton Rouge Bar Association and the Louisiana State Bar Association.
