With 14 years’ experience, Mike brings unmatched work ethic and insight to the table. Fresh out of LSU Law School in 2006, Mike earned the coveted opportunity to clerk for Judge John V. Parker in the United States District Court of the Middle District of Louisiana. This position taught him how to best navigate Louisiana’s complex court systems and he observed jury trials and oral arguments from a wide variety of attorneys. The clerkship inspired him to become a trial attorney with a national insurance carrier and he successfully tried his first case within his first few years of practice. Mike’s reputation as a knowledgeable and aggressive litigator earned him the prestigious AV Preeminent rating by Martindale Hubbell based on opinions of the members of the Bar and Judiciary. Those opinions caught the eye of Taylor Wellons which he joined in 2016.
Since that time, Mike remains a trusted advocate for his local and national clients primarily in the area of casualty litigation. Mike’s trial and appellate record speaks for itself. His focus on an aggressive and proactive defense creates the best outcome time and time again. While his career is certainly a priority, Mike’s wife and two boys come first. Mike’s outcome oriented approach for his clients is driven by the desire of setting a good example for his children.
