I was born and raised in the New Orleans, Louisiana, Metropolitan area. After receiving my undergraduate degree from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I moved to Missouri to begin my legal journey at the UMKC School of Law. During law school, I developed a passion for advocacy and sought to be involved with any program or project that would further my litigation skills. I also served as a legal intern to the Honorable Harold L. Lowenstein of the Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District. Since graduation, I have spent my entire legal career practicing in the Midwest region.

Following law school, I worked for several years at a big defense firm representing large companies. Indeed, working on the defense side provided me with an employer's perspective on litigation that has been invaluable to my practice. However, I knew I wanted to work for individuals who had been wronged in some form or fashion. Unfortunately, bad things happen to good people. And, when they do, I want to be the person to help those individuals out. I provide every client 100 percent of my effort and will work tirelessly to receive the best results possible. If I can be of any assistance to you, please let me know.
