Biography: I come from a family of Lawyers. My father practiced law in Lake Charles, LA from 1958 until his passing in 2002. I have been practicing law for 22 years. My career began in Texas, but I settled back Lake Charles, LA in 1996. I still maintain my Texas license given the close proximity of the Texas border to Lake Charles.In the early years of my practice, I handled cases in all areas of the law. However, a significant part of my practice has always been in the field of injury law. And I have been fortunate enough to be very successful in this area. Several of the injury awards are on my web page.In 2005 I chose to broaden my practice into the area of criminal law and began handling drug offense cases. It wasn't long into my criminal practice that I realized there was a need for lawyers who thoroughly understood how to defend a DWI or DUI case. Soon thereafter, I began the process of learning the ins-and-outs of DWI law. I ultimately joined the National College of DUI Defense which requires extensive study into this particular area of law. To further hone my defense skills, I got trained and certified in administering the Standardized Field Sobriety Test just like law enforcement officers. This gives me the ability to evaluate their administration of the test and go toe-to-toe with them during cross-examination should your case goes to trial.To sum it up in a nutshell, I am a dedicated lawyer. I am proud of what I do; I am also aware of the serious responsibility bestowed when a client entrusts their case to me. If you care to discuss your case further, feel free to give me a call.
