Allison Hopkins Penzato - Charting a Successful Roadmap, 13 Jan 2009 [cached]
Allison Penzato lives her life with purpose. She is devoted to family, refreshingly honest, passionate about the law, determined to succeed, adores this community and is extremely happy with her life.
In life, one is either a leader or a follower. Allison Penzato is a doer. Once she sets a goal, she develops a plan to implement its success. Even before high school, Allison knew she wanted to be a lawyer. Determined to achieve her dream, she consulted a respected local attorney about the steps needed to make her goal a reality. With her roadmap in place, Allison graduated from high school mid-year with honors. She moved into the dorm at Southeastern Louisiana University the same weekend and began college classes the next Monday. Working her way through undergraduate studies in two and a half years, she began law school just after her twentieth birthday. She attended Loyola Law School at night while working during the day-first as a court runner for the Jones Walker law firm in New Orleans and then as a law clerk for United States Magistrate Ingard O. Johannesen. Magistrate Johannesen's courtroom was where Allison gained respect for the bench. "I respected how Magistrate Johannesen conducted his courtroom," Allison recalled. "Being on time and being prepared were the hallmarks of his court. Those traits soon became standards for her own law practice.
Allison credits her parents, Lee and Dorothy Hopkins, and her Bogalusa upbringing with teaching her the intrinsic values of education and a good work ethic.
Allison took this advice to heart. In her 27 years of practice, she has gained a reputation for hard work, attention to detail, and unparalleled service to her clients. These traits have resulted in the success of her practice and in the courtroom. Her professional and civic accomplishments were recognized in 2007 when she received the CityBusiness Leadership in Law award.
Not one to wait for life to happen, Allison embraces life and all it offers. When she met Russell Penzato in college, her career path remained the same, but her personal life became much more interesting. That meeting blossomed into a 30-year marriage full of love and support. "Russell is still my college sweetheart and my best friend," Allison beamed.
"We were like ships passing in the night," Allison recalled.
Described by her friend of 18 years, Marsha Brown, as "a true steel magnolia," Allison has the innate ability to be both assertive and gracious at the same time.
It is a very befitting description of Allison Penzato.
"Allison is a real friend," Marsha said.
Because of her love for this community, Allison has always found time to take an active part in community affairs. She has spent countless hours volunteering at her church, school fairs and non-profit fundraising events. She served as President of the Junior League of Greater Covington from 1997-1998, maintaining her full-time law practice and guiding the league to its affiliation with the Association of Junior Leagues International.
Many would say that her volunteer work is her hobby. "My volunteer work throughout the years has always given me so much pleasure," Allison recalled. "It is great to see good things come from what you do and even more satisfying to see how the work you do helps others. Allison has the graceful ease about her that exudes serenity. "I am very content in my life," Allison said. "I have an exciting and fulfilling career, extraordinary children and a loving and supportive husband. I have been blessed."
