I have been an attorney in Louisiana for over 11 years. I attended law school at night at the Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge and Graduated Cum Laude in December 2009.

I studied abroad during undergraduate school and lived in Spain from 2000-2001 and am completely fluent in the Spanish Language.

I began working in Franklinton, LA for William H. Burris in May 2016, and supported him throughout his run for Judge in the 22nd JDC St. Tammany/Washington Parish. I then took over his law practice and brought in a partner, Mary Devun. We are a new firm in Franklinton, Louisiana serving both Washington and St. Tammany Parish.

I have experience in Personal Injury, Divorce, Family Law, Juvenile and Criminal matters. I have been a contract attorney with Southeast Louisiana Legal Services, LLC – as a children’s attorney for 8 years and I am working towards being certified as a child specialist.

Soy un abogado bilingüe español y inglés. Me encanta ayudar a las personas, especialmente a los hispanos y latinos, y ayudarles a través del sistema legal. He sido abogado en Louisiana durante más de 10 años. Asistí a la facultad de derecho por la noche en el Southern University Law Center en Baton Rouge y me gradué Cum Laude en el año 2009. Estudié como extranjero y viví tanto en Costa Rica como en España y obtuve una licenciatura en español y psicología. Comencé a trabajar en Washington Parish en Franklinton, Louisiana para William H. Burris en Mayo de 2016, y lo apoyé durante su carrera por ser juez en la parroquia 22 de JDC St. Tammany / Washington. Practico en Jefferson, Washington, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa y otras áreas en Louisiana. Tengo experiencia en daños personales, divorcios, derecho de familia, asuntos juveniles y criminales. He sido un abogado de contrato con la Oficina del Defensor Público Juvenil en Washington / St. Tammany Parish. También he sido abogado de contrato con Southeast Louisiana Legal Services, LLC, como abogado de niños durante 7 años.


What are the types of bankruptcies that are available and what is the differences between them?

There are 2 types of bankruptcies, a Chapter 7 and a Chapter 13.

Which type of bankruptcy is right for me?

To determine which type of bankruptcy is right for you, your attorney will need to know your financial situation. You must qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In 2005 the Bankruptcy Court instituted a means test to determine if a debtor can qualify for a Chapter 7. The means test is based on income and number of people in your household. However, even if you qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may still want to file a Chapter 13. Remember, if you file a Chapter 7, you must give up your assets to the Bankruptcy trustee.

Can I keep my house or my car out of the bankruptcy?

You must disclose all creditors in your bankruptcy petition. However, if you have a house or a car, and you are making your payments on those assets, you may be allowed to keep those assets and continue making your monthly payments to the creditors. If you are current with those creditors, the creditor may offer you a reaffirmation agreement which reaffirms that you want to keep paying on your house or car even after your discharge in bankruptcy. Your bankruptcy attorney can advise you on whether a reaffirmation agreement is to your benefit.

Do I have to appear before a judge if I file bankruptcy?

Typically, you will only need to appear before a bankruptcy trustee. You will have to appear in court if any of your creditors object to any aspect of your bankruptcy.

Why would a creditor object to my bankruptcy?

Creditors typically object if you purchase something on credit or take out a loan and then you file bankruptcy within 90 days. Debt that you incur within 90 days of filing bankruptcy may be subject to scrutiny by the court or the creditor. If you are thinking of filing bankruptcy, you should refrain from making purchases on credit.
