Brandy S. Citizen, Associate
Brandy Citizen’s areas of practice include the defense of employers and insurance carriers for claims arising under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, Defense Base Act, and War Hazards Compensation Act.
Brandy joined Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett with almost a decade and a half of legal experience in federal, state and city government. She formerly served as a managing Social Security disability attorney, a managing attorney for Child in Need of Care claims for children in the Louisiana foster care system, the associate counsel for the Louisiana State Police, and the deputy legislative director for New Orleans City Council.
“My educational foundation and career experiences have taught me to not only meet the expectations of my clients, but to exceed their goals by establishing relationships of trust, open communication and confidence, providing solutions at all turns, and ultimately achieving the most beneficial outcome possible.”
Brandy discovered a love for service while attending her alma mater, Spelman College. She believes that “what you give ought to be in direct relationship to what you’ve received. If you have been blessed with a great deal, then you have a lot of giving to do.” – Dr. Johnetta B. Cole. Attending law school at Southern University further solidified this ideology for Brandy, where she learned the importance of maintaining a strong work ethic, high moral compass, and humility in all that she does.
Brandy was born in Louisiana but raised in Atlanta, Georgia. It was the rich culture and authenticity found only in New Orleans that ultimately made her return for permanent residency. She takes pride in being a fulltime Boy-Mom, with the help of her husband, to two handsome and energetic little boys, practicing yoga, traveling, and rooting for the Saints.
