Biography

I knew at a very young age that I wanted to be a lawyer. In fact, I wrote a poem in the 5th grade on the subject and, even though I didn't earn the literary praise I had hoped, it was published in a parish wide book alongside the works of other students. From that moment I locked into the dream of becoming a lawyer and I drew inspiration from that poem.

I grew up in a small military town and my father, who is a retired Army officer, instilled in me the value of hard work and respect for the feelings of others even if it requires that you put your own aside for the moment. I am confident that we have created a successful model for how real people, who suffer real problems, desire and deserve to be treated.

My practice has afforded me the opportunity to litigate and try cases for more than 20 years. In each and every case, I found great satisfaction in promoting the rights and needs of my clients.
