About Me

Call me at 225.383.9703.  HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL! 

I'm here to defend you from the moment the police begins its investigation all the the way through trial, when necessary.  If you need a lifeline in a moment of crisis, I am there for you and your family.  As a former prosecutor, I know how the Government will attack you, and I know how to fight back!
