ELISE BUIE, Esq. Elise Buie, Esq. is a family and divorce lawyer and founder of the Elise Buie Family Law Group. A survivor of Hurricane Katrina, her own divorce, and many dish-filled sinks piled high after lively family dinners with her husband, Doug, and their blended family of six (six!) teens and 20-somethings, Elise knows firsthand what it means to juggle work and parenting, finding balance in between, even if it means a lot of late nights.
