Summary

I am a highly experienced general practice attorney, one of a dying breed who has done it all. I handle serious personal injury, wrongful death, estate planning, real estate, and public relations. I have practiced bankruptcy law for individuals since the Spring of 1980 when I filed my first bankruptcy case as a law clerk during my last semester of law school at LSU, Baton Rouge. I have practiced law since, continuously and without interruption. The scope of my practice will continue to conform with my varied pursuits, but with an emphasis on public relations as well as bankruptcy. I have associations with other firms I work with on specific cases.
