A Bit About Me

I was working for a law firm downtown when COVID hit.  My oldest son had always encouraged me to work for myself.  He was always saying "you are either building someone else's dream, or building your own."  So here I am, building my dream.  My motivation is to be a part of building other people's lives, while building my dream.  That is a legacy that I want to leave.  More to come....

Work Experience

 2019 - present

1991 - 2020

I have drafted, execute/authenticate affidavits, acknowledgements, powers of attorney, wills, applications, basically any form of writing.  I am also a Notary Signing Agent, having gone through the rigorous training of the different forms of real estate financing and closing packages, back ground checks, and clearances.  

While in college I volunteered at a  law firm practicing Bankruptcy law.  When I graduated I was hired fulltime at that firm.  I did not want to make bankruptcy my career.  I went to work at a tax law firm where I reviewed tax records, prepared minutes, employee contracts, leases, and corporations.  When I moved to Louisiana I began working in personal injury.  Not wanting to make that my career, I began working in a corporate law firm, working around transactional law, estate planning, and contracts.  My last position was with an insurance defense firm.  All of this experience has made me the well rounded professional and provided the in-site and expertise I use today.
