I like to tell people that I’ve had the best of both worlds – I was born in Texas but raised in South Louisiana! I am a football fan, outdoor enthusiast, and fierce protector of my family.
My life experiences have taught me valuable lessons that I carry daily into my law practice…
• Be curious always.
• Be approachable and honest.
• Live with integrity.
I am a skilled attorney with a broad legal background and more than 15 years of experience in corporate, transactional and employment law.
I have practiced extensively in Louisiana federal courts actively defending employers against claims or lawsuits brought by employees under various state and federal employment laws. My practice has recently evolved to include the defense of trucking companies in personal injury suits as well as the defense of manufacturers in claims brought under the Louisiana Products Liability Act.
My time spent as inhouse counsel offered a front row seat to the real issues and needs faced by companies today. You want practical advice. You want reasonable risk measures that offer you the ability to move forward. You want to foster collaboration and create partnerships. I can work with you toward these goals.
If you have concerns about your case, I will take the time to talk with you and give you an honest assessment of where things stand. I will not promise you a result or tell you what you want to hear. I will partner with you to protect and defend your company.
When not practicing law, I enjoy spending time with my large and loud family! My husband and I are passionate about the outdoors and can be found exploring Caddo Lake most weekends. Surprising to many is that I love to fish, am a “wanna be” marathoner, and an avid knitter!
