Louis L. Galvis
“Salty" Galvis has since 1980 practiced in many areas of law, including commercial law, products liability law, professional liability (errors and omissions) law, maritime law, insurance law, employment law, and electric utility industry casualty law. After a short stint practicing law in Pennsylvania, Salty returned to New Orleans, where in 1982 he joined the firm, then known as “Sessions, Fishman & Nathan, L.L.C.,” and practiced with the firm for 15 years, first as an associate attorney and then as a partner. Starting in early 1997, Salty spent the next ten years as Assistant General Counsel - Litigation for Entergy Services, Inc., the professional services subsidiary of Entergy Corporation (at the time one of the largest fossil-fuel and nuclear energy companies in the United States). In April of 2007, Salty rejoined the firm and relocated to Fort Collins, Colorado, where he is now the managing attorney of the firm’s Colorado office. He currently concentrates his practice in consumer litigation and debtor-creditor litigation as a member of the firm’s commercial and business litigation practice group. He has handled civil litigation and tried and appealed numerous cases in state and federal courts in Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Wyoming and has written a successful brief to the United States Supreme Court in a case that the Court heard and decided on a writ of certiorari.
As an undergraduate student majoring in Political Science, Salty attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas and Tulane University in New Orleans, where he was a Dean’s List and University Scholar student and was admitted to Pi Sigma Alpha, the political science honors fraternity, and Phi Beta Kappa. He attended Tulane University’s School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctor degree with honors in 1980 and was the winner of the law school’s senior moot court appellate competition, successfully arguing his final appellate round before the full bench of the Louisiana Supreme Court.
Over the course of his career, Salty has been published in a national law treatise on maritime law, lectured extensively at continuing legal education seminars regarding numerous aspects of civil litigation, and appeared on radio and television programs discussing legal topics of interest to the public.► Download vCard
