A Proactive Approach to Protect You and Your Family

As a family law attorney practicing in the Acadiana area, my mission is to provide efficient and effective legal solutions and to provide optimal outcomes for my clients. I maintain an honest, straightforward approach and work to help my clients maintain as much control over their case as possible. I am upfront about the benefits, disadvantages, costs and length of proceedings in every case.

If you're a father facing a divorce, your rights, your children's rights and property are at risk. Family courts are often biased in favor of mothers, putting you at an unfair disadvantage. As an aggressive advocate for father’s rights, I vigorously defend the rights of men facing all types of family disputes, including divorce, custody and support. I ensure your parental rights are protected and your support payments are fair. With a straightforward, hard-hitting approach, I fight to ensure fathers receive equal treatment both in and out of court and go to great lengths to protect father’s interests and assets.
