I’m a Louisiana boy. Lived here my whole life, born and raised, never left. I grew up on a family farm. I had a father who worked harder than any man to this day I’ve ever seen. So, from him, I learned character, and I learned a work ethic that I don’t think many lawyers in my business can match. I took those values and applied them to practicing law in representing my clients.
When you’ve been in an accident, you don’t want to come in and hear a bunch of law talk. You want to hear it put in words that you understand. And I think that’s what’s unique about us. The real Digger is not this guy in this suit. The real Digger is blue jeans and cowboy boots and a T-shirt. So, you know, I understand what you’re going through. I understand where you come from. I understand who you are, and I can relate. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do, there’s no lengths I wouldn’t go to get the job done for my clients.
David and I are related—we’re cousins. David’s a great guy and a great partner and a great lawyer. We knew that we didn’t want to be like all the others. You know, we have a lot of competition out there in this business. And I’d say 99% of that competition blows hot air, pounds on their chests, screams and hollers, jumps up and down, and at the end of the day, just accepts whatever the insurance company is willing to give them.
We wanted to be different. We’re the 1%—we won’t be outworked, we won’t be outhustled, we won’t be outspent. And there’s no lengths at which we won’t go to for you. I do this every single day. Put your trust in me, and just know that I got your back. And there’s nothing I won’t do for you.
Each case is different, each injury is different, and everyone’s unique. So, what I hope to accomplish on every single case is one thing: I want that client to shake my hand at the end of the day and say, “Digger, you work your butt off. You worked hard, and I appreciate what you did for me.” As long as that client knows that I had their back and that I busted my butt for them, I’m happy.
