I believe that he is a good lawyer but since he is the supervisor of the juvenile department with the 21st Public Defender's office AND a member of the Tangipahoa School Board, there is a conflict. He does not see the conflict, so I do not trust his judgement. Other than that, I do not have any problems with him.

Very personable and attentive to clients needs! Took the time to understand my case and was clear about fee schedules.
