Sandra Salley has had several cases reported to the Louisiana Southern Second Reporter and are now used as case law references. For example, the Doran case is referenced in cases where the definition of reconciliation requires clarification, and the Bible case has been used when determining if a default judgment is proper.
Just two years out of law school, Laurel Salley took a case all the way to the Louisiana Supreme Court and won. The ruling in this case earned due process rights for clients in cases involving orders of protection. Today, that case is taught to family law attorneys throughout Louisiana.
