Born and raised in Bourg, Louisiana, in the heart of Louisiana’s Bayou Country, where hard work and tenacity are a way of life, Gerald learned at an early age, what it takes to be successful. Gerald learned his love of family and community from his parents and his nine siblings and continues to give back to the community that raised him. A proud “Bayou Boy”, Gerald devotes his time away from the practice of law to saving a culture that is rapidly disappearing by volunteering on various boards and committees in his local community.


Gerald received his undergraduate degree from Nicholls State University and enjoyed a successful career in retail sales prior to entering law school. Gerald obtained his Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from Loyola University New Orleans School of Law where he was a recipient of the Dean’s Scholarship, was a William Crowe Scholar and graduated magna cum laude. With over eighteen (18) years experience, Gerald’s primary areas of practice include medical malpractice, insurance defense, professional negligence, products liability, construction defect, business formation and business acquisition.


Gerald is admitted to all Louisiana State Courts, the Eastern, Middle and Western Federal District Courts, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Tunica Biloxi Tribal Court.
