Ms. Pierre-Louis was appointed head of the Trenton office in 2016 and became in charge of the Camden office two years later. Ms. Pierre-Louise subsequently returned to practice as a partner in the white collar and government investigations practice group in the Cherry Hill office of Montgomery, McCracken, Walker & Rhoads, where she had commenced her legal career as an associate before joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
