Denis J. Gaubert, III
Retired Attorney (INACTIVE)
I was born in 1955 at Fort Riley, Kansas, while my father, a U.S. Army officer, was assigned to that post. My parents were natives of Thibodaux, Louisiana, where I grew up and have resided for most of my life. Like many local residents, I am a descendant of exiled French Acadians who settled in Lafourche Parish in the 18th century and, like them, take pride in the unique character and culture of this area.
I am the product of U.S. armed forces schools and the public school system of Louisiana. After graduating first in my class in 1973 from Thibodaux High School, I attended Nicholls State University in Thibodaux with a full four-year academic scholarship. I graduated summa cum laude in 1976 after three years, thereby allowing another student the financial benefit of a year's scholarship. Although accepted and offered scholarships at other law schools, I chose to attend Louisiana State University Law Center, graduating in May 1979. After passing the Louisiana state bar examination administered in July, I was admitted to practice law in Louisiana on October 5, 1979.
