I practice in the areas of personal injury litigation, construction litigation, and estate and probate litigation. I was born and raised in New Orleans, where I attended Jesuit High School and Loyola University. I come from a large and diverse family, and I am very proud of my New Orleans heritage.

My legal career began when I was just a child, answering phones and greeting people at my family’s law firm. I still remember the shock on some of the clients' faces when they came into the office and saw a boy behind the front desk. It was those early days and fond memories with my family that drove me to become a lawyer. 

Since I graduated from Loyola Law School, I have held many different roles.  First, I clerked with the Honorable Darryl Derbigny in Section J of the New Orleans Criminal District Court. After my clerkship, I got a job in the French Quarter as the lead case manager for a large class action lawsuit Janice Claborne, et al. vs. The Housing Authority of New Orleans, et al. fighting for over 11,000 class members due to the mold and mildew inside New Orleans’ housing projects. Once the class action was resolved, I became a personal injury attorney in the French Quarter, working under Darleen Jacobs. Following the retirement of a respected colleague, I was then made in-house counsel at Darleen’s real estate corporation in the French Quarter. 

I was hired by Scott Vicknair as an attorney working in the firm’s Succession and Estate Planning practice group. I am licensed to practice law in Louisiana, and I am also a licensed Louisiana Realtor.  

In my free time, I enjoy watching football (Geaux Saints!), playing paintball, and enjoying the great cultural scenes of New Orleans.
