In Memory of Melisa C. Potter

Former Legal Assistant / Deaf Liaison

In Memory of Melisa C. Potter
November 24, 1959 – November 15, 2021

Melisa (Lisa) Chase Potter began working as a Legal Assistant and Deaf Liaison with Bianca | Matkins (under the name Bianca Law Firm at the time) in 2018 and handled the needs of the firm’s Deaf or Hard of Hearing clients. Lisa provided an invaluable resource to help everyone at our firm understand Deaf culture and to communicate effectively with members of the Deaf Community.

Lisa’s tireless quest for Deaf Advocacy opened our eyes to the legal needs of the Deaf Community and she showed us what we could do to help. With Lisa’s assistance, we successfully provided legal representation to many Deaf clients over the years. She was a cherished and beloved friend. There is no question that Lisa brought a positive change to this world through her endeavors. We miss her and will continue to fight the good fight in her name.

Lisa obtained an Associate of Science degree in Early Childhood from Delgado Community College as an honor inductee in Zeta Kappa Epsilon; a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Louisiana State University as an honors inductee in Kappa Delta Epsilon and Omicron Delta Epsilon; as well as a Master of Science degree in Deaf Education from William McDaniel College in Maryland. She taught American Sign Language to hearing students (9th – 12th grade) at Massaponax High School for one year prior to moving back to Louisiana to teach at Louisiana School for the Deaf for ten (10) years (2005 – 2015).
