I was born and raised in Lafayette. I am blessed with a beautiful and supportive wife, Sarah, and two inspiring and wonderful young children. We enjoy boating, water skiing, hunting, fishing and spending time with family. We are active members of Asbury United Methodist Church, where Sarah and I are fortunate to teach Sunday school and mentor young children.
I graduated from Acadiana High School in 1982, from University of Southwestern Louisiana in 1986, and from Louisiana State University Law School in 1990. After law school, I moved to Austin, Texas, where I worked for the Texas Railroad Commission, enforcing violations of oil, gas, and transportation regulations. The best part of that job was I met Sarah there in 1992.
In 1993, I left the Railroad Commission to do what I felt I was meant to do as a lawyer – represent real people instead of corporate or governmental interests. I spent a large part of my time representing persons injured or killed as a result of medical malpractice, and learned that ability from a remarkably intelligent and capable physician/lawyer.
I returned to Lafayette in 2000, and opened my own law practice dedicated to representing persons injured in cases of medical malpractice, 18-wheeler wrecks, car wrecks, industrial and boat accidents, and legal and other professional malpractice, as well as claims involving breach of contract, consumer fraud, and wrongful denial of insurance benefits.
I am active with Lafayette Volunteer Lawyers, a project coordinated by the Lafayette Parish Bar Association. I am especially proud of this work, as I assist women who are unable to hire a lawyer obtain protective orders against their abusers.
I attended and graduated Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College as one of only 110 graduates from around the nation that year, and remain active in post graduate seminars and learning at TLC.
I am a member of the Louisiana Association for Justice, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, American Association for Justice, Louisiana State Bar, Texas State Bar, Lafayette Parish Bar Association, and am admitted to practice in multiple federal courts throughout Louisiana and Texas.
