We are getting into the Mardi Gras spirit at the Dutel Law Firm offices in Mandeville, Louisiana. Our “Dutel Law Firm Krewe” celebrated at the Mystic Krewe of Olympia King’s Luncheon in Covington on January 29, 2016.
Mr. Dutel rides annually in the Krewe of Olympia, and is the Lieutenant of his float. They paraded through historic downtown Covington, Louisiana on January 30, 2016. This year Olympia paraded with a pun-filled cocktail theme. Billy Dutel rode on the “Candyland Cognac” float at the front passenger side. Mr. Dutel enjoyed a wonderful ride this year, with perfect weather drawing large, enthusiastic crowds to the parade route. Many of our firm’s clients, friends, and family were among the riders and spectators for the parade, making it a special night – thanks to all who came out. We also thank the law enforcement officers and first responders who keep everyone safe each year, allowing us all to experience a fun, family-friendly event.
Mr. Dutel is also involved in the Mystic Krewe of Olympia Foundation, which is the philanthropic arm of the organization. The Foundation is hosting the annual Blue Jeans Ball, which this year will occur on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at the Covington Trailhead. The event benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Louisiana, the Youth Service Bureau, the Covington Fire Department, and the Covington Police Department. Last year’s inaugural event was a great success, and this year promises to be even better, with a battle of the bands featuring Boogie Falaya and Lost in the 60s.

We at the Dutel Law Firm hope everyone enjoys a safe and happy Mardi Gras this year.
Please note: Mardi Gras comes early this year – February 9, 2016. The Dutel Law Firm will be closed on Lundi Gras (February 8, 2016) and Mardi Gras (February 9, 2016).
