Did you know that Lafayette native Perry Sanders, Jr is working for the family of Michael Jackson? The son of the legendary leader of Lafayette’s First Baptist Church is a high-profile attorney based out of Lake Charles, Louisiana and Colorado Springs, Colorado.

I was reading a story about Paris Jackson’s suicide attempt and saw the attorney’s quote was credited to Perry Sanders, Jr., so I did a little research. Here’s what I came up with:

Perry Jr. is the only child of the Rev. Dr. Perry Sanders and Gloria McMorris Sanders. He attended LJ Alleman Middle School in Lafayette and graduated from LSU, and LSU Law School.

The Sanders Law Firm handles Environmental Law, Entertainment Law, Intellectual Property, Civil Rights Violations, Business Litigation, Death and Personal Injury.

Katherine Jackson was reported to have hired Perry to help repair her relationship with the Michael Jackson estate back in 2011.

He made the news this week when he released a statement to the Associated Press after Paris Jackson’s suicide attempt:

“Being a sensitive 15 year old is difficult no matter who you are,” he wrote. “It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy.”


He is also an accomplished musician. His website, includes photos, free music downloads and his musical bio.

“If you take the time to mine this material, I hope you find something that makes the effort worthwhile and puts in perspective that “we’re all waiting in the checkout line” and should embrace the best of every second on our way to the register. “
