In 2006, Lafayette relocated to the metro Phoenix area with the goal of earning his college degree from Arizona State University. As a student at ASU, Lafayette often encouraged his classmates and professors to think outside the box and challenge the status quo. Upon earning his Bachelor of Arts degree, Lafayette enrolled at Phoenix School of Law to fulfill his goal of becoming a criminal defense lawyer.
During law school, Lafayette again sought to be a voice for individuals that often have their civil rights violated by the government. While receiving his legal education, Lafayette extended his legal experience by interning and working directly with several Maricopa County Superior Court Judges.
