I did my first trial two weeks after I was licensed to practice law and I was hooked. When I’m helping a client, I like to look at the situation and imagine all of the possible scenarios and outcomes. I have the ability to see situations from angles that others may miss and I believe in finding ways to deal with and get beyond issues that some may see as problems in a client’s case.
Overtime & Wage Lawyer
I am passionate about getting my clients the wages they are owed. That is why, after practicing general employment law for many years, I chose to make overtime and wage claims my primary focus. I have handled more than 2000 wage claims against employers.
Personal Injury and Employment Lawyer
During her life, my mom taught me many lessons. The one that I remember the most is to always fight for what you believe in and never lose sight of who you are and what you stand for. That is what I keep in mind as a lawyer. I want to make a difference, and my job allows me to do that.
I am a problem solver. My clients have included nurses, truck drivers, sales people, factory workers, athletes, executives, and more. All of them solved problems all the time in their work and family life, but recognized that when standing up to their employers for unfair treatment, they needed help from someone trained in the specialized language of the law.

Personal Injury and Employment Trial Lawyer
The day I arrived in New Orleans for my freshman year of college, I had to evacuate because of Hurricane Katrina. I had carefully planned and prepared and worked hard to get there, and as a very young adult, at the time it felt like the worst thing that could ever happen. Now I appreciate that it was a valuable life lesson, one that has given me an understanding and empathy as a lawyer that I may not have otherwise gained.
Although I’ll never know what it’s truly like to walk in another person’s shoes, my first goal as an employment attorney is achieve a high degree of empathy with each client to better understand and connect with their feelings. Once I’m fully able to discern a client’s situation, I can then apply my expertise and inform them of what protections and remedies they may have under the law. I often find that meeting someone where they’re at emotionally is a necessary step towards forming a constructive attorney-client relationship.
