Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

The year before I began law school, I scored in the top 1% worldwide on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). This score earned me the Faculty Merit Scholarship to the Paul M. Hebert School of Law at Louisiana State University. In 2004 I was fortunate to be able to study International Comparative Law at Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3 in Lyon, France.

Since law school, my career has reflected my approach to life. I believe a person must be well rounded in order to be successful. Having a diversity of interests and experiences allows me to adapt more easily to new legal issues and navigate around unexpected obstacles.

Beginning my career in criminal law provided me with a strong litigation background. In addition, I have substantial experience in many aspects of the legal practice including:

State & Federal Courts
Corporate Formation & Structuring
Employment Contracts
Services and Goods Vendor Contracts
Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act
Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
Data Security & Privacy Rights
Family Law
Medical Malpractice
Voted Top Lawyer by New Orleans Magazine 2013 & 2014
