More About Me
I am here to help you get a fresh start from whatever problem you have so that you can move on with your life – your problem is my problem. I have over 30 years of experience counseling and representing clients in simple and complex litigation. I am a former New Orleans Deputy City Attorney where I trained and supervised a team of attorneys. I also found my love for helping people in assisting everyday citizens who came to City Hall to solve their problems. After leaving City Hall, I continued helping the people by representing clients both big and small before various city departments, boards and commissions. I have represented clients in over a hundred cases in both state and federal court in the greater New Orleans area. Those cases have ranged in size from a simple speeding ticket to multimillion dollar class action litigation. No individual’s issue is more or less important to me.
In addition to counseling clients regarding their personal and business relationships, I offer relationship and marriage counseling services.
