Louis is a skilled trial attorney with more than 35 years of experience in civil and criminal litigation. He focuses his practice on personal injury, commercial litigation, medical malpractice, labor law, employment discrimination, and premise liability cases. Louis joined HBS after spending the last 14 years as a partner in a New York law office where he was an accomplished trial attorney with a successful record in federal, state, and appellate courts.

Louis began his career as an Assistant DA under Robert M. Morgenthau in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. He shifted to private practice in 1994, where he was responsible for civil litigation, including medical malpractice, personal injury, products liability, and white-collar criminal defense in federal and state courts. Louis then spent twelve years as Chief Assistant District Attorney at the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office.

His cases have been profiled in various books and movies, and he has served as a legal analyst on television shows such as Court TV and Hollywood Justice. Additionally, Louis is a faculty member for the National District Attorneys Association, American Prosecutors Research Institute, and the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

Louis earned his J.D. degree from New York Law School, studied at Oxford University in Oxford, England, and received a B.S. in Environmental Science from Long Island University-Southampton College.

Jannah joins HBS as an Associate in our White Plains office where she focuses her practice on the defense of medical malpractice and general liability matters. Prior to joining HBS, Jannah was an Associate at a local firm where she focused on matrimonial and family law. During law school, she was a law clerk at a boutique labor and employment firm.

Jannah earned a J.D. from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University, where she was Staff Editor of the Cardozo School of Law Arts and Entertainment Law Journal and a Semi Finalist in the Paulsen Moot Court Competition. She also holds a B.A., magna cum laude, in Political Science and Psychology from Yeshiva University, where she was the recipient of the Moshe Arens Scholarship for Excellence in Political Science. As an undergraduate, Jannah was a member of the women’s tennis team and received the Yeshiva University Female Student Athlete of the Year award during her senior year.
