About Me

Brett
is a lifelong resident of Hammond, LA.  After graduating from Hammond
High in 1994 he joined the Louisiana Army National Guard where he
served for ten years helping to lead operations of the 205th Engineer
Battalion. His service included a tour of duty to Afghanistan in
support of "Operation Enduring Freedom.”   While serving his country in
combat is one of his proudest achievements, he is quick to tell anyone
who will listen that this tour of duty was also the time that he was
most proud of his hometown. Brett had asked his hometown to "Adopt"
three Afghan villages near the base where he was stationed, and the
city came through in a huge way. He was never more proud to be an
American and Louisianan.  For his service in combat Brett received:
Army Commendation Medal, Louisiana War Cross, Army Achievement Medal
(3rd), National Defense Service Medal (2nd), and Global War on
Terrorism Expeditionary and Service Medal. 


Brett
graduated cum laude from Southeastern Louisiana University with a B.A.
in History and Government in 1999.  While at Southeastern, he was a
member of Theta Xi Fraternity, as well as, Gamma Sigma Alpha and Order
of Omega honor societies.  He also served as Interfaternity Council
President and Chief Justice of the Student Body.  Upon his year of
graduation, Brett was the recipient of the Lieu Award, the highest
honor for academic excellence in his major.

After graduation, Brett began pursuing a Masters in Business
Administration and joined the Management team of ARAMARK Corporation,
the company in charge of food service operations at Southeastern
Louisiana University. 


On April 7,2001, Brett married his college sweetheart, the former Regina M. Lamb.


He
obtained his Juris Doctor and a Bachelor of Civil Law in 2005 from the
Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University.

Brett describes the focus of his practice as "helping people find
practical solutions to their legal problems."  A common complaint of
his is “I've always been frustrated with attorneys who take a simple
legal problem and make it complicated simply for the purpose of making
money off another's difficult situation.”  His experience has been all
areas of business representation, including formation, defense, and
contracts. In addition to his business law practice, Brett also has
experience representing individual clients in matters ranging from
estate planning to personal injury representation to Juvenile defense.

Brett is a long time member of Immanuel Baptist Church.  He enjoys
volunteer work and has worked with organizations such as the Boy Scouts
of America and the American Cancer Society.  He is also a member of the
Louisiana State Bar Association and the Twenty-First Judicial District
Bar Association.
