2023 Grand Marshal

Robert Lucky was born and raised in the small town of Greensboro, Alabama. His mother, Bennye Barnette, and late father, Robert W. Lucky, both teachers, raised him and his sister in the close-knit town where a deep sense of community and service was instilled. During his undergraduate career, he began working in the legal field as a paralegal primarily in the fields of criminal and family law. In 1997, Robert moved to Baton Rouge to attend law school at LSU’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center.  While at LSU, he earned a position on the law center’s Moot Court Board based on his excellent writing and persuasive arguing skills. He also participated in numerous activities and courses that later would help him when challenging and fighting large insurance companies for his clients. Following graduation in 2002, Robert began his career fighting for those who had been injured at the fault of another and who deserved just compensation for their damages.  In 2010, Robert and his business partner, Michael Malinowski, Jr., started The Lucky Law Firm, APLC. Later, they would then open MidCity Title, LLC. Both companies now operate from offices in Baton Rouge and New Orleans and serve clients throughout Louisiana.

In addition to his legal work. Robert is an active member of the Baton Rouge community devoting his time and resources to a variety of charitable causes and civic organizations. Serving the community and bringing people together are key focuses in Robert’s life. He serves on several boards, including the A. C. Lewis YMCA and the Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center.  In addition, Robert is supporter of the following causes that are dear to his heart: The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Louisiana, Mirror of Grace Outreach, St. Margaret Episcopal Church, Project Lazarus, Krewes of Apollo Baton Rouge and Lafayette, Baton Rouge Pride, Westdale Middle School, MidCity Gras, Forest Heights Academy of Excellence, Donaldsonville High School, Louisiana CASA, the Baton Rouge Irish Film Festival, the Robert A. Bogan Fire Museum, Colors of Pride, Kiwanis Club of Baton Rouge, Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University (FranU), the Baton Rouge Bar Foundation’s Holiday Star Program, Baton Rouge Youth Coalition and many other organizations serving the Gulf Coast.

Robert is a prime example of working hard and playing hard. From community outreach to throwing one of the biggest St. Patrick’s Day parties in Baton Rouge, Robert loves to bring a smile to those he encounters. Halloween is one of his favorite holidays of the year as he and many friends serve candy to hundreds of children in the neighborhood. He takes great pride in encouraging creativity, kindness, and purpose in today’s youth, an ideal he credits to his mother who was a schoolteacher for over thirty years.
