LDP Endorses Gideon Carter for First Circuit Court of Appeal
The Louisiana Democratic Party endorsed Baton Rouge attorney Gideon Carter in the race for the First Circuit Court of Appeals on Saturday.
The endorsement was made by the party’s executive committee and by a vote of the Democratic State Central Committee which met at the State Capitol in Baton Rouge.
Mr. Carter has practiced law for more than 25 years, representing clients from all walks of life, crossing all socio-economic, cultural and racial boundaries, including other lawyers and small businesses. He has represented and protected the interests of real people and developed lasting relationships with other lawyers throughout Louisiana and the nation.
“When I am elected to the Court of Appeal all parties coming before me on the bench will know that I possess the unique ability to understand exactly what is at stake,” Carter said. “No interest or concern will go unprotected.”
His areas of practice have included Civil Rights, civil litigation, state and federal criminal law, commercial law, succession and estate representation, financial/estate/retirement planning, insurance and personal injury litigation, family law, property law and worker’s compensation.
Mr. Carter has been involved in a number of high profile school desegregation cases, including those in East Baton Rouge Parish, Jefferson Parish, St. John the Baptist, St. Martin, Tangipahoa, and Pointe Coupee parishes.
“So you ask why I am running for judge? And my response is simply ‘because getting it right matters.’” Carter said.
