Practice and Personal Background

During law school I served as a Senior Editor on the Board of Editors for the Louisiana Law Review. In 2009, my law review article “A Coroner System in Crisis: The Scandals and Struggles Plaguing Louisiana Death Investigation” was published in Volume 69 of the Louisiana Law Review. Prior to law school I worked as a medicolegal investigator for the Lafayette Parish Coroner’s Office. I am a member of the Lafayette Parish Bar Association, the Louisiana State Bar Association, DRI (Defense Research Institute), and the Federal Bar Association. I am also a member of the National Association of Railroad Trial counsel.
