Fighting for life and liberty since 2014. I help people stay out of jail and fight for my clients' rights to stay free or to become whole after getting injured by someone. If you or someone you know gets arrested, charged, or becomes a government target, now you know who to call for help.
I studied law to become a civil rights lawyer, especially to protect citizens from the government's power to take their liberty. During my last year of law school, I joined the Tulane Criminal Litigation Clinic, where I began defending people from serious felonies. Later I joined a large criminal defense firm before becoming independent by opening my own law firm. I have never looked back and it is an honor to assist anyone injured, arrested, or accused of a crime.
