2010 Press Releases


(504) 310-2590

 NOVEMBER 22, 2010


The Louisiana Supreme Court announced today that attorney Timothy F. Averill has been selected to serve as Judicial Administrator of the Louisiana Supreme Court, filling the position after 20 years of experience as a Deputy Judicial Administrator-General Counsel for the Court. The Judicial Administrator’s Office is the managerial arm of the Louisiana Supreme Court which is the staffing and fiscal agent for several court departments and programs, the Judicial Council, and court-appointed task forces and committees. He will return to the Court on December 13, 2010 to begin his service.

Averill received his B.A. degree in English from James Madison University in 1979 and received his M.P.A. degree from the University of Alabama in 1980. He received his law degree from Loyola University Law School in 1985.

Averill was a law clerk and then later an attorney for the law firm Abbott, Webb, Best & Meeks in New Orleans before serving a one-year clerkship for Louisiana Supreme Court Justice Pascal F. Calogero, Jr. in 1986. From 1987-1989 Averill practiced admiralty law at the New Orleans law firm Phelps, Dunbar, Marks, Claverie & Sims and in 1989 he began as General Counsel in the Judicial Administrator’s Office of the Louisiana Supreme Court. He served in this position until 2008 when he was selected to participate in the Supreme Court of the United States Fellows Program in Washington D.C. where, for two years, he was assigned to the Administrative Office of the United States Courts. Since returning to New Orleans earlier this year, Averill has worked in the law office of retired Chief Justice Pascal F. Calogero, Jr. providing legal representation in appellate, lawyer discipline and bar admission matters.

Throughout his legal career, Averill served as an instructor at Verbatim Academy of Court Reporting on topics of Legal and Maritime Terminology and Court Reporting English. He has also authored law-related articles which have been published in the Louisiana Bar Journal and the Journal of Court Reporting.

Averill is married to attorney Johanna Guadamud Averill and they have four children.
