I'm a former St. Tammany Parish Assistant District Attorney and have been practicing Personal Injury, Divorce and Criminal law for the past 20 years. My experiences through so many clients over the years gives me a tremendous understanding of the emotional, physical and financial strain of any type of litigation regardless of the nature of your case. I keep staff around me who are patient, caring and understanding to my clients' needs. I know that anytime you must call upon the services of an attorney it generally involves a stressful situation and often times and overwhelming experience. My staff and I first listen to your needs and desires, then set out a plan to accomplish those goals. Often times I can't tell whether I'm fighting the other party or the other attorney or both because I don't truly know who is calling the shots on the other side.
But in my office, YOU the client are making all decisions regarding your children, assets, your injuries and their value, and in criminal matters whether a plea is best or a trial is desired. We don't blow smoke your way about how great your case is and how we will beat up the other side. On the same token, we don't lay down for anything or anyone. What we do is shoot you straight with the good, the bad and the ugly. We work hard and prepare for Trial. We don't twist your arm to settle. We give our opinions and then follow your marching orders. We are your advisor on one hand and yet your soldier on the other.
The bottom line is that at the end of the day we are giving it our best to accomplish your goals. No matter what type of legal services you need, you must TRUST your lawyer. TRUST to do what is right for you in any given situation. TRUST that he/she is a good person and has your best interest at heart. A lawyer who is serious when necessary but can also lighten the load with humor when appropriate. Someone you feel comfortable talking with and confiding in.
We take pride in being that lawyer for you. So, come see us. Sit down with us face to face and decide whether we're right for you and your case. If not, then no harm, no foul. If so, then we are ready to work hard and give you some mental comfort that allows you to finally get some sleep tonight.
