I knew at a very young age that I wanted to be a lawyer. In fact, I wrote a poem in the 5th grade on the subject and, even though it didn't earn me the literary praise I had hoped, it was published in a parish wide book alongside other students. From the moment I locked into the dream of becoming a lawyer, I drew inspiration from that poem.

I grew up in a small military town and my father, who is a retired Army officer, instilled in me the value of hard work and respect for the feelings of others even if it requires that you put your own aside for the moment. I am fortunate to have found a law partner who shares my views of respect and together I am confident that we have created a successful model for how real people, who suffer real problems, desire and deserve to be treated.

My practice has afforded me the opportunity to litigate and try cases for nearly ten years. In each and every case, I found great satisfaction in promoting the rights and needs of my clients.

Frontier Title Company was established in 2002 to serve the Baton Rouge metro area in real estate transactions. Since that time, Frontier has expanded its services and now conducts real estate closings on a statewide basis.

At Frontier Title, we recognize that, whether a first time homeowner or a sophisticated investor, the people we serve are engaged in a very important and significant event in their lives. Our motto, "Helping Old Friends Reach New Frontiers," means that, in all that we do, we convey to the client our understanding that the real estate transaction being perfected is important to them. Accordingly, we strive to make the entire closing process a relational event that culminates in a successful and smooth closing.

Frontier Title Company has recently taken steps to reach out to the Spanish speaking people of our community. We have recently been joined by an attorney who is fluent in Spanish and who can assist our Spanish-speaking clients in all phases of their real estate transactions. We also provide the resources of a full civil law practice; often essential to the closing process. Simply put, we can be a one-stop-shop in regards to any special needs our clients may have. We are locally owned and locally managed and, at Frontier Title, we believe in building our business one relationship at a time.
