Environmental Law

“Resistance creates hope”

- Herman Wallace

I represent both pre-trial and post-conviction defendants in parishes across Louisiana.  I value your liberty, freedom and constitutional rights and am prepared to handle your criminal defense needs.

I work on a wide range of environmental justice and land use case. In particular, I have extensive experience crafting comprehensive administrative comments for National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) public comment periods for the non-profit sector.  

My work has focused on confronting the intersections of racial, environmental and social injustices for the past eigtheen years. 

I transitioned from community organizing to legal work eight years ago. Today, my client-centered legal practice incorporates my past experiences in confronting corporate consolidation of our natural resources and the prison industrial complex. I can handle your criminal defense, civil rights, or workers compensation matter.  Also if your family wants to plan for its future, my firm can handle your estate planning needs.
