More About Attorney Randy Ligh

Randy B. Ligh is a former employee in the Parish Attorney's office for the City of Baton Rouge and the Parish of East Baton Rouge where he held positions as Assistant City Prosecutor in the Office of the City Prosecutor, as Assistant Parish Attorney in the Code Enforcement Section, and as Assistant Parish Attorney and Special Assistant Parish Attorney in the Litigation Section.

In 2008 Randy was promoted to the position of Director of the Collections Division where he supervised and was responsible for the collection of funds owed to the City-Parish. Under his leadership, the City-Parish collected subrogation for damage to City-Parish property, worker's compensation payments/liens, outstanding and delinquent funds for occupational license and sales tax matters, EMS transports, unpaid parking tickets, condemnation liens and weed liens. Within the duties of the Director of Collections, Randy handled the litigation of the Division, which included collection matters on behalf of the City-Parish and where the City-Parish was named as a defendant, as well as significant tax obligations and included contractual matters where money was involved. Randy worked closely with the City-Parish Finance Department in this role, and served as their main legal advisor, as well as had significant interaction with the Baton Rouge police department, Department of Public Works, Baton Rouge Fire Department, and EMS.

During and after his career in local government, Randy managed a part-time private practice where he represented clients in multiple areas including personal injury, criminal defense, corporate transactions, wills and estates, and litigation. Some of his clients appeared before various boards of the State of Louisiana. In 2018 he founded the firm of LIGH BOLTON before entering into a partnership with Mary Roper with the formation of ROPER LIGH in 2019.

From a personal standpoint, Randy is an avid tennis player and regularly captains numerous adult tennis teams competing in the various leagues under the umbrella of the Louisiana Tennis Association and the United States Tennis Association. Under his guidance, several of his teams have represented Baton Rouge in state tournaments and Louisiana in regional tennis tournaments. In 2017, Randy's Baton Rouge-based team represented the Southern Tennis Association at the National tournament. Thus, if he is not "in court" for his clients, then Randy is "on the court" sharpening his athletic skills. In either arena, he is a formidable opponent.

Randy has an AV preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell, which is the highest attorney peer rating in terms of professional ability and expertise, as well as adherence to the professional standards of conduct and ethics.
