Following law school, Luke clerked for three federal judges: Kermit E. Bye of the Eighth Circuit, Manuel L. Real of the Central District of California, and Robert G. James of the Western District of Louisiana. After completing his clerkship on the Eighth Circuit, Luke moved to private practice, working for Kanner & Whiteley in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Robins Kaplan in Minneapolis, Minnesota before joining Bona Law as a partner.

This focus leads not only to the most effective, but also efficient, resolution of the problem his client is facing.
