I offer tenacious, results-oriented legal representation coupled with honest and compassionate counsel for clients. When you retain me, you will get a devoted attorney who will stay readily available to you throughout your case as well as an effective advocate who will always fight for your rights and your best interest.

Because I believe no one should have to choose between an optimal result and a fair price, I arrange affordable hourly, fixed or contingent fees with clients.


Jacqueline Barber moved to New Orleans from Los Angeles in 2010 to attend Tulane University Law School. Prior to entering private practice, she served as a law clerk to Honorable Judge John D. Saunders at the Louisiana Third Circuit Court of Appeal.

Motivated by a desire to directly serve a diversity of clients and build an independent practice in her community, she founded the Law Office of Jacqueline Barber in 2015. She has since represented clients in over 100 matters, including domestic litigation, personal injury claims, premises liability claims, small business disputes, debt collection, landlord-tenant disputes and evictions, and criminal defense.

While in law school, Jacqueline served as Senior Articles Editor on the Tulane Journal of Law & Sexuality, where she became familiar with the unique family law, employment, civil rights, and tax law issues affecting the LGBT community of which she is part. Additionally, she gained valuable legal experience as an intern for the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights in Washington, D.C.; a student attorney at the Tulane Civil Litigation Clinic; research assistant to Professor Shu-Yi Oei; and an extern for the Honorable Judge Keva Landrum-Johnson of the Orleans Parish Criminal District Court. She received the CALI Award of Excellence for the highest grade in Products Liability.
