I am a life-long resident of Louisiana, although I have had the great honor to travel to Africa, South America and Central America for short term missions. I hope to add stamps on my passport from India, Asia and the Middle East from helping those in poverty.
I know the cultural nuances of Louisiana, particularly North Louisiana and Northeast Texas. I can be to border of Mississippi or Central Louisiana within two hours. I can access most of East Texas within two hours. Many clients use my experience to oversee the investigation of catastrophic accidents throughout North Louisiana and Northeast Texas. If an incident were to go to litigation, I am a seasoned trial attorney who has tried more bench and jury trials in thirty years than most attorneys have in a lifetime.
I practice law to protect the industries that move America, protect their property and assets and employ thousands of people. I mentor lawyers to do the right thing in the right way even if it is at personal cost.
I began my career as a prosecutor. One of the most significant cases I handled was a serial rapist in which we used what was then novel scientific evidence: DNA identification. For more details click here to see my curriculum vitae.
When I am not practicing law, I am passionate about foreign missions, addiction/depression recovery and being the best husband, father and grandfather that I can be.
