Prism Group was founded from Alan’s desire to help others discover and understand the importance of people, purpose and perspective—both personally and professionally. As the son of a local builder, Alan’s passion for work began early in life. He began working with his father at a young age constructing houses, and during his freshman year at LSU, he built a small home. This was a transformational experience for Alan. He recalls, “The seeds of business and its correlation to one’s efforts were planted deep that summer.”
Alan was a practicing attorney for nearly 20 years before experiencing a career philosophy change that led him to mediation. Energized by his new career path, Alan found the personal fulfillment he sought through his work helping others discover common ground and resolve their conflict. Leading Prism Group for over 15 years, Alan has been involved in close to 4,000 mediations, each time bringing to the table a keen understanding of people, a propensity to ask the questions that matter and a passion to help those in dispute see situations in a new light.
Sean began his legal career over 20 years ago as a law clerk at his father’s firm in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Through the twists and turns of a diverse practice, his strength in resolving large and complex workers’ compensation cases became impossible to ignore. This specialization in workers’ compensation led him to meet Alan Jordan and eventually join the
mediation team at Prism Group. Sean’s focus on listening and educating, coupled with his experience in handling cases from both sides, provides him a unique perspective and understanding of both the injured employee, employer and the insurance carrier.
Michelle joined the Prism team in 2021 as our 3rd mediator. In addition to over 25 years of experience with workers’ compensation cases, Michelle brings with her an unmatched passion for helping people find resolution together with her genuine care & understanding in every case. Outside of work, Michelle can be found reading, playing chess, or spending time with her 2 daughters.
Joe’s extensive experience representing both employers and insurance companies for the last 35 years has equipped him with the industry knowledge, personal communication tools, patience & strategy to be an effective mediator. His defense practice of predominantly workers compensation cases naturally led to mediations with the Prism Group, which he joined in 2022 as the 4th member of our mediation team. Outside of his worklife, Joe is a member of the very active Dawnbusters Kiwanis Club in Metairie, Lector at St. Clement of Rome Church, self-employed bourbon and scotch taster on weekends, and a very involved “Papa Joe” to his four grandchildren.
Teri graduated from LSU Paralegal Studies Program in 1993. She is one of the original team members of Prism Group and has worn many hats throughout her 27 years with the company. As office manager, she assists in various roles of administrative support and handles all accounts payables and receivables. In her spare time, Teri enjoys cooking meals for family and friends, listening to music and dancing (when nobody’s watching).
When Jerrie joined Prism Group in 2019, she brought with her over 20 years of experience within the legal field. She enjoys working with customers and scheduling mediations in a timely and friendly manner. Jerrie’s favorite past times are taking long walks with her dogs, biking, gardening with her husband, and relaxing by the pool.
After graduating from Southeastern Louisiana University, Darlene entered LSU’s Paralegal Studies Program, during which time she joined Alan’s team. Since
graduating in 1995, Darlene has worked alongside Teri and Alan, wearing many hats from executing paralegal duties to scheduling mediations, and plenty of “hats” in between. After working full-time at Prism Group, Darlene answered the call to family duties. Although she now works part-time, she is still willing to fill any need to support the Prism Group team. At home, Darlene stays busy with teenage children, and her husband of 22 years. She loves to travel and read, but has little time for either, because her family keeps her on the run.
Emily joined the Prism Group team in 2019 as Prism’s creative voice. Emily is the designer behind Prism’s custom thank you cards! She enjoys writing content for the variety of items that Prism sends to its clients, delivering a personal, caring touch. When she’s not creating work for Prism Group, Emily can be found biking, running, cooking, painting, or spending time with friends.
Connie met Alan in 1984 while both of them were attending LSU Law School. They married just before graduation, and Connie practiced briefly before shifting her focus to raise their five children. Over the years, Connie has played an integral behind-the-scenes role on the Prism Group team, but she’s perhaps most known for her homemade treats given to everyone involved in a mediation with Prism Group! When she’s not baking or helping with other organizational and logistics tasks for Prism, she enjoys planning trips to visit her children and their families scattered across the United States.
