About me

My law practice has evolved primarily into a family law practice which includes divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support and community property partitions and settlements. I work hard to protect your short and long term interests and strive to do it in a manner that helps you preserve the changing relationships in your life. 


Every divorce is different and a solution that works for one client may not be appropriate for another. In order to develop a personal legal strategy that is tailored to your individual needs, I will first learn about your goals, objectives and priorities. 


For all divorce matters, including custody disputes, property settlements, child support, and modifications of orders, call me.  I want to help you.   I offer a free 30 minute consultation.  I am licensed to practice law in all Louisiana state courts and serve both the north and south shore.
