About me

I have been in practice for over 33 years.  I have operated my own Law Firm for 31 of those 33 years.  I have handled a wide variety of types of cases, however, currently I emphasis criminal law.  I have been on many high profile Organized Crime RICO cases as well as cases involving the highest number of co-defendants in the country, 142.  I've represented gang members and private individuals who found themselves in difficult situations & have strived to help them out of it to be able to go on with their lives. l was involved in the largest Child Pornography case in the country in Louisiana wherein my client was exposed to a 35 year mandatory minimum sentence, but received a sentence of 5 years. I have a broad range of experience involving the whole range of State & Federal criminal cases.
