At Adams and Reese, Sensenbrenner has a diverse practice that focuses on commercial litigation, education law and policy, and board governance. Within her education practice, Sensenbrenner advises charter schools across Louisiana, as well as local boards, regarding compliance with local, state and federal laws. Her litigation experience overlaps various areas, including commercial, medical malpractice, maritime, and labor and employment. 

Sensenbrenner is ranked by peers among Louisiana Super Lawyers® Rising Stars in the areas of Civil Litigation, Schools & Education, and Government Relations.
