Terri Odom and Staff

Terri Hoover Odom is a wife and mother of four children, and step-mom to four more!  She lives in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana and earned her Juris Doctor in 1985 from Loyola University in New Orleans. Since 1989, Terri has completed well over 500 adoptions. During her years of practice, she has seen first hand the sorrows of infertility and the joys of adoption: from helping birth parents in the delivery room, caring for a new born, or comforting adoptive parents during the waiting period. She believes that choosing adoption is one of the most loving gifts a birth mother can give her baby.

 

Professionally, Terri has been a member of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys since 1998. Currently, she is the only adoption attorney in North Louisiana privy to this membership. The Academy is an association dedicated to the highest standards of practice in the field of adoption law.

Emily Debnam- Associate Attorney

 

Emily Debnam is Terri’s daughter and associate. Emily lives in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana and earned her Juris Doctor in 2014 from Loyola Law School in New Orleans. Emily grew up watching her mother practice adoption law and is so excited to have joined her in practicing.

Jackie Scott- Legal Assistant

 

Jackie Scott has been working with Terri since June of 2002.  She has a passion for adoption and is vital to our office.  In November of 2014 Jackie received the Individual Adoption Advocate Award from the Department of Children and Family Services.  She was recognized by the state for her diligent work which ensures that the adoption process runs smoothly for adoptive families.
