About Edward McAuliffe
Edward’s practice areas at Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett focus on trucking and transportation and insurance defense. Prior to joining MBLB, he was an Assistant District Attorney in New Orleans, where he rose quickly through the ranks, eventually heading up the District Attorney’s Bond and Asset Forfeiture Division.
As Edward said about his experience as an AD, “Being tough and being professional are not mutually exclusive. I ‘grew up’ as a lawyer in the school of hard knocks at Tulane and Broad. The courtroom, trial, administrative, and legislative experiences I gained as an ADA are invaluable. The same tenacity I brought to the criminal arena I maintain in defense of my civil clients.”
