NEW YORK — As an up-and-coming lawyer about 10 years ago, Esther Cajuste didn’t know many other Haitians in the same field of criminal justice law, until she met Rosemonde Pierre-Louis.
“One of the first times I heard her speak, I was as a fresh out of law school attorney,” says Esther Cajuste, a prior president of the Haitian-American Lawyers Association of New York (HALANY). “How to have confidence really came full-circle for me, just watching her stand on a podium and commanding attention.” 
Working as an attorney was just the beginning of Pierre-Louis’ multi-faceted career in the public sector. One that saw her rise in New York’s political circles just as other Haitian Americans came to prominence, as reflected in initiatives she helped lead, such as The Haitian Roundtable.
