A trusted litigation attorney focused on Louisiana.

If you are looking for a burn injury or legal malpractice lawyer, you’ll likely find many who take cases all over the country. But you won’t find Tommy doing that. His commitment is to the hard-working men and women who live and work in Louisiana. And he doesn’t accept more cases than he can handle. Rather, he limits his focus so he can maintain an open and honest communication with you and your family.

Experience based on 20-plus years of litigation work.

Tommy has been representing injured individuals and companies across the state of Louisiana for over 20 years. He is also proud to have won many significant verdicts and settlements favorable to his clients.

Today, Tommy is trusted by his clients in two areas: burn injury and legal malpractice. In each of these he takes pride in helping people that have been wronged by someone else. And because he has such a narrow focus, he has a deep and thorough understanding of the legal issues in your case.

Integrity, compassion, a down-to-earth guy.

When he isn’t practicing law, Tommy is just like many other Louisianans.

He is a proud husband and father of three daughters and volunteers in areas including sobriety, domestic violence, and homelessness. He is also fond of his farm, tending to fruit trees, and improving the land with his favorite tractor or track hoe.
