Feel free to contact me directly at 225-206-5149 or [email protected] to discuss your legal needs and to learn about how I can help.
Skilled Representation In Consumer And Business Bankruptcy Matters
Bankruptcy is an important legal tool for individuals and businesses facing overwhelming debt. But the bankruptcy process can be complex, both for the debtors and the creditors to whom money is owed. In either case, it is important to work with a skilled bankruptcy attorney who can ensure that your rights and interests are protected.
I have considerable experience guiding debtors through the Chapter 7, Chapter 13 and Chapter 11 bankruptcy processes, and I work with both individuals and businesses. My firm also represents creditors seeking to protect their rights in a bankruptcy case. My work includes filing a motion to protect security interests in property or filing an adversary complaint objecting to the discharge of a debt. Whatever your financial needs are in this serious matter, I can help.

If you own a business or want to start one, you’re going to need legal help from time to time. I have the knowledge and experience needed to help entrepreneurs at every stage in the life cycle of their business. My offerings include:
- Business formation and reorganization services

If you are a business owner looking for personalized, friendly support, you can count me to provide expertise, straight talk, and respect.
Insurance Law And Litigation
Dealing with insurance companies always seems like an uphill battle, whether you are a business owner, a homeowner, or another type of policyholder. I can help you push back against unfairly denied or underpaid claims.
One of the most common insurance problems in Louisiana is the payment of storm damage claims, including damage from hail, high winds, and hurricanes. Insurance companies try to deny or otherwise settle these claims for as little money as possible, leaving homeowners and business owners unable to cover the costs of repairs on their own.
Before you decide you are out of options, contact me for guidance.
Successions, Wills, and Estate Law
Planning for your estate upon your death or preparing for a serious disability which renders you physically or mentally incapacitated, are very important matters. I highly recommend drawing up plans as soon as possible, not only for you but also for your family. Estate and disability planning for any business or business interests which you may own are equally important.
As an experienced attorney handling successions, wills, and estate law, my services include:
- Filing and prosecuting succession and probate proceedings
- Preparing last wills and testaments
- Preparing general durable powers of attorney to grant handling a broad range of areas, including management of property, finances, and health care
- Preparing declarations concerning life-sustaining medical procedures, upon anticipated imminent death or an irreversible comatose condition
- The power of attorney, which grants health care powers, and the declaration are referred to commonly as “living wills” or “wills to live.”
Part of my expertise includes being an Assistant Examiner for the Successions portion of the Louisiana State Bar Examination since 2010. Rest assured, your best interests are my mission.
