SNW Welcomes Attorney Chelsea Brener Cusimano

NEW ORLEANS – The Louisiana law firm of Sternberg, Naccari & White, LLC, with offices in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, is pleased to welcome Chelsea Brener Cusimano to the firm as a Partner.
Ms. Cusimano, who like many SNW lawyers practices around the state in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Shreveport, and Monroe, is a noted employment lawyer with business, litigation, and a law enforcement background. She joins the firm from Brener & Kraus, the firm founded by her mother, the late Lisa Brener. She is a fourth-generation New Orleans lawyer.
“Chelsea’s decision to bring her significant practice to SNW says a lot about her, and our growing firm,” said SNW Co-Managing Partner Scott Sternberg. “Our business clients and individuals around Louisiana and the gulf coast will benefit from her wealth of employment experience.”
Ms. Cusimano, a 2012 graduate of Loyola Law School and 2013 graduate of George Washington University’s LL.M. program, said that working with the SNW team in diverse litigation cases drew her to the firm.
“I’m thrilled that I get to work with thoughtful litigators who care about their practice, their clients, this firm, and each other.” Chelsea said. “The energy at SNW is contagious–I already look forward to work every morning and I know my second decade will be even more challenging and exciting than my first.”
Chelsea lives on and around the thriving Magazine St./Bouligny corridor in Uptown New Orleans. Her family lives blocks away, but her English Labrador is always close by. Her claim to fame? Her St. Martin’s High School graduating class voted her “Wittiest.” Her real claim to fame, however, is that her “step-dog” Kevin the Shiba has nearly 100,000 followers on Instagram.
