I’m really proud of the family that I have. I have five children, I have a wife. My father was my former law partner. Before that, he was a judge. Digger also has five kids. Some of the other lawyers in the firm have multiple children. And so, we’re really just a large family. I think it makes us, as a firm, very relatable to our clients.
There’s no place like Louisiana. And to be with the people that we grew up with, and to serve the people that we grew up with, in the communities that we grew up in is something special. I instantly relate to a client, whether it’s a loss they’ve suffered personally, something with their spouse, something with one of their children.
I’ve always fought for the underdog, and it’s just my nature that I think that the disadvantaged and those who need help need someone to come in and be their hero. When a client walks through the door, they’re not just a number, they’re not just a person. We can relate to them because we’ve had the same experience.
I’ve personally been involved in accidents that I’ve been injured in. I know what it’s like to wake up in the morning and not be able to get out of bed because your back hurts. I know what it’s like to have a surgery that keeps you from working for weeks at a time. I know what it’s like to see a loved one who can’t go to work because they’ve been injured. And so, I think it makes us as a firm very relatable to our clients
By nature, I think to be a plaintiff’s attorney, to represent people that have been injured, you have to be compassionate. Our clients come to us in a very vulnerable and broken state oftentimes. And without someone having their back and providing them with guidance and representation, they have no chance. And that’s what drives us.
You know, we want to make sure that our clients are well represented, that they understand what they’re facing, and that no one takes advantage of their situation. And that’s something that, without exception, we do with each and every client. I can’t tell you how good it feels to help them get back on their feet and to show them some path that’s going to give them some hope for the rest of their lives.
