Tell us a little bit about your practice and what makes it unique.
- After more than 30 years of practice as a defense trial attorney, I am able to handle cases in multiple practice areas; pharmaceutical (drug and medical devices), railroad (FELA and crossing cases), asbestos, products liability, etc. I have had the privilege of being lead trial counsel and to be part of some amazing trial teams. Also, because of the scope of the work of our clients, I have been able to be involved in several cases outside of Louisiana.
What is most challenging about your area(s) of expertise?
- The most challenging aspect of my trial work is the opportunity and privilege to practice with and against excellent attorneys. This challenges you, not only in requiring detailed and thorough preparation, but it also presents a unique opportunity to represent our clients in important cases and to defend not only the cases but also the great people who work for the involved companies.
What other interests do you have?
- In addition to trying cases, I also like to teach, both law students and young attorneys. Each year, I teach a week-long class every year at my law school, or jury selection and persuasion. I also teach at the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel Trial College in Dallas, Texas every year. This gives me an opportunity to share my experiences with young law students and young lawyers to help them find their own unique style of litigation.
