Over the years’ Attorney Juan LaFonta has been on the forefront of serving his community. Making his mark as an elected official, educator, community advocate and now as a top attorney; he continues to be dedicated to serving others and those that are in need. Something he describes as part of his lifelong commitment to making life better for those of the City of his birth. On this warm spring day at “The Original New Orleans Sno-ball and Smoothee” people are gathered on Elysian Fields Avenue in Gentilly treating themselves to Sno-balls, with its shaved ice and flavored syrup, that is a delight and is an essential part of cooling off from the heat in the Crescent City during the warmest months of the year.
But what is also happening on this day is that Juan LaFonta is giving away 100 free sno-balls and t-shirts with various parts of town on them and is shooting a scene for his new commercial with Bounce Artist, Author, and Reality Show Star Big Freedia. This is a follow-up to his first commercial, with its infectious bounce beat and the lines ‘He fight, he don’t play, Juan LaFonta will handle yo case.’ Since its initial airing, it has gone viral and is the talk of New Orleans and beyond. In this commercial he’s invited the community to take part, “In this commercial I wanted to include the members of the entire community.” Continuing he says, “I am happy that I have been able to serve my City in so many ways and I look forward to doing even more and I am especially committed to our young people and inspiring the next generation to lead our City and also know that it’s important for them to give back.”
