Michael ("Mike") Higgins was raised in Crosby, Texas, and Slidell, Louisiana. He was admitted to the Louisiana Bar in 2006, and to the Texas Bar in 2014. Mr. Higgins completed his preparatory and legal education at Tulane University (B.A., 1998; J.D., 2006). He also earned a Master's of Education from Delta State University (2000).  

After receiving his undergraduate degree, Mr. Higgins spent two years as a middle school teacher in Tunica, Mississippi, as a Teach for America corps member.  He entered private practice, and after several years of representing plaintiffs and defendants in civil litigation, he joined the Louisiana Department of Education's Office of School Choice, serving first as their Accountability and Oversight Manager, and later as their Director of Law & Policy.  In this role, he drafted regulations for the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, and devised and implemented systems related to the oversight of the state's charter schools.  Mr. Higgins then established The Higgins Law Firm, LLC, a firm dedicated to providing legal services to Louisiana's charter schools.  He has extensive experience working with charter school authorizers and education law, employment issues, contracts, open meetings and public records law, insurance coverage, construction defects, and torts.
