Cheryl Wild-Donde’Ville is a litigation attorney with Waltzer Wiygul & Garside in the firm’s New Orleans office. She’s got a long last name and handles a wide variety of general legal matters. She predominantly practices personal injury, including wrongful death, premises liability, auto and trucking collisions, and Jones Act seaman claims. Since the tragedy of the BP Oil Spill, Cheryl has worked tirelessly to secure just compensation for hundreds of clients, including commercial fisherman.
Cheryl embraces her legal career much in the same way that she cheers on her Tigers in Death Valley…with passion, heart and ultimately, ruthless abandon. Prior to joining Waltzer Wiygul & Garside, Cheryl spent her time researching cases in Louisiana State University’s Political Science Department, where she worked as the Chancellor’s Student Aide for four years. She decided to see how the other side lived for law school and graduated from Tulane Law with an award for Highest Mark in Community Property, a Specialization Certificate in Admiralty and Maritime Law, and as a member of the Dean’s Board for Speakers and Colloquia. That same year, she was admitted to the State Bar of Louisiana. Later, in 2011, Cheryl decided to officially have the opportunity to practice in a neighboring state and was admitted to The Mississippi Bar.
You never know, Cheryl may begin to make her way east. We’ll see if she decides to tackle the Alabama and Florida bars next. If not, maybe you can just find her at the Flora-Bama sippin’ on a Bushwacker.
