About me

For over twenty years I have had the privilege of providing quality legal representation to individuals and businesses in Louisiana and California, as well as clients from other jurisdictions requiring representation in those states. I have written and conducted seminars on several legal issues. For more information, please refer to the classes/seminars listed below.

My range of experience includes debtor-creditor law, bankruptcy, family law and commercial matters, including litigation and business formation. I began my practice at a large firm in New Orleans, and I became a partner with one of that city's most respected bankruptcy and litigation firms. After becoming a member of the California bar, I was the manager of the Los Angeles office of a highly rated San Francisco firm. My wife and I decided to return to New Orleans, and I opened my office in New Orleans' Central Business District in 1996. 

I have represented clients in state and federal courts in many jurisdictions, and I had the opportunity to represent clients before the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal at The Hague. The major portion of my practice is now devoted to providing quality representation with "big firm" experience to individual clients who, in many case, would be unable to obtain that representation.
