About Me

I am attorney license in all district courts in Louisiana and the Eastern District of Louisiana.  I have passed the Florida Bar as well, but I am not a Florida licensed attorney.  I mainly represent criminal clients, but I enjoy representing families through child custody and support cases and during divorces.  I also work part time in corporate defense.

I am originally from Massachusetts, but migrated to Orlando, FL in 1996, and moved to Louisiana in 2006.  I am a resident of the Lower Garden District after having lived in Uptown and Broadmoor.

I also have a son, Nicholas, who is pretty awesome.
