I've been a consumer bankruptcy lawyer for nearly 25 years. Since that time I have helped many people resolve their financial problems.
I have been practicing law since 1986 and I am licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in the State of Louisiana.
Because I am a sole practitioner, you know that your debt matters are being handled by me personally.
In addition to my work with consumers, I am also frequently asked to speak at local seminars on bankruptcy law.
I am member of the following organizations:
• Louisiana Bar Association
• National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys
• Bankruptcy Law Network

My office is located at:

3920 General DeGaulle Drive, New Orleans, LA 70114

Telephone: (504) 368-4101
