She has extensive litigation experience handling cases throughout Louisiana and Texas in both state and federal courts, and she has represented some of the nation’s largest insurance carriers as both plaintiff and defendant. This invaluable experience on both sides of the courtroom gives her the unique ability to see the issues from different angles and enables her to anticipate her clients’ needs.
