Representing clients and resolving their problems has always been my passion. I wanted to be a lawyer since I was a small child. The practice has been rewarding and fun.
I am actively involved in my community and church.
I have been a Greater New Orleans Metropolitan United Way (now known as United Way Southeast Louisiana (UWSELA) volunteer for the past 19 years . I presently sit on the UWSELA as the volunteer legal advisor to the Community Impact Coordinating Council. I was the former Co-Chair of Children and Families Goal Area and was responsible for funding children's and family programs-from 2000-2012. I served as Chair of the Professional Section for the United Way fund raising campaign in the 1995-1996 campaing year. My section was acknowledged for its turnaround in campaign donations from the professional community. Donations from the professional community had been declining prior to my tenure.
I was a volunteer for the Preservation Resource Center and served as a program fund raising chair in 2005. I previously chaired rebuild teams in the Rebuild Together (formerly known elsewhere as Christmas in April) program refurbishing homes of the elderly and the disabled around New Orleans from 1993 to 2003.
Spinning, swimming, golf and Zumba are my hobbies.
Hourly ($200-350/hour), contingent (33-40%)
