Biography

After graduating in 1979 from Louisiana State University’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center, Mr. Womack won judicial clerkships in the Louisiana State District and Appellate Courts. Afterwards, in 1984, he began private practice with Durrett, Hardin, Hunter, Dameron & Fritchie, working under Roger M. Fritchie, one of the premier trial lawyers in Louisiana.

Upon the death of Mr. Fritchie, Mr. Womack moved his practice to Taylor Porter, where he is a partner.
