LaDarien was raised with an understanding that a sound education is the foundation of success. As a former student-athlete, LaDarien harnesses his intellectual curiosity and competitive drive to meet or exceed client expectations and ensure a just and effective education system.

A native Houstonian, LaDarien graduated from Houston Baptist University, where he earned a Track & Field scholarship. He then attended Notre Dame Law School, focusing on public law and constitutional law.

While in law school, LaDarien exercised a passion for education by tutoring first-year law students as a Constitutional Law teaching assistant. He also served as Editor-in-Chief of Notre Dame’s Journal of Legislation and was honored with publication in both the Journal of Legislation and the Notre Dame Journal of Law, Ethics & Public Policy. Additionally, LaDarien represented indigent clients at the school’s legal aid clinic and founded a student-organization focused on the legal challenges faced by low-income families.

Having had the privilege of being an Assistant Rector for one of Notre Dame’s dormitories, LaDarien has an appreciation for the policy-related and administrative challenges faced by institutions of higher learning.

Before joining Thompson & Horton, LaDarien served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Lynn N. Hughes in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
