Helane “Lulu” Seikaly is a proud first-generation American - the daughter of a pediatric specialist and a Registered Nurse who fled civil war from their native Lebanon. Raised in North Texas, Lulu wants to ensure that every American has the opportunity to succeed just like her family did here.
An attorney and advocate, Lulu’s interest in service to her community began at a young age and grew at Ursuline Academy of Dallas, where she won the “Serviam” award, exemplifying Ursuline’s motto meaning “I will serve.” Lulu attended Southern Methodist University where she was active in student government and later earned her law degree from South Texas College of Law, graduating with honors.
Recognized as a rising star in the employment and labor law field, Lulu specializes in employment law, which includes discrimination and and harassment matters, and she trains employers and employees alike on best practices in avoidance of these areas. Inspired by her parents’ work ethic, Lulu is driven by a commitment to give back to her community and provide a voice to the voiceless.
Lulu lives in Plano, Texas, the community where her husband, Daniel, grew up in, and where her in-laws live. Lulu enjoys volunteering in the community, traveling, and mentoring law students and preparing them for mock trial tournaments around the country.
From fixing our broken health care system, to addressing the skyrocketing cost of living across the area, and the student debt crisis preventing many from buying a home or starting a business, Lulu understands the challenges facing North Texans.
While Washington politicians put partisanship first, she will stand up to both parties to do what’s right. Lulu is running to make sure everyone in North Texas has a chance to succeed.
