Bio

I am honored to practice law in the State of Louisiana, and the Parishes of Ascension and East Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas. I will care for your legal matter as though it were my own. I understand that you worked hard to earn the fees paid to my office – I will give you a diligent and honorable effort in return.

Personal Biography:
Born and raised in Louisiana, I spent significant time in Tennessee and Georgia in the 90’s, but returned home to go to school and have lived here since 1998.

I spent more than twenty years in the restaurant business, culminating in managing a premiere white tablecloth steak house; where, as the sommelier, I was responsible for the 3,000 bottle wine list. I also ran the day-to-day operations of the restaurant, a skill set I am able to put to use in my law practice.

I have five children ages 26 to 2, and one step-son. And am lucky enough to be married to Ms. Mindy Ambeau, previously an emergency room nurse, prior to taking leave to raise our youngest child.

Educational Biography:
I have an undergraduate degree in Philosophy from Thomas Edison State College, a leading distance learning institution located in New Jersey. I completed my undergraduate studies while deployed to Kuwait/Iraq in 2004. Prior to deployment, I had studied at Louisiana State University for 3 ½ years. My undergraduate thesis at LSU focused on the ethics of Immanuel Kant and a formal logic analysis of his formulations of the moral law from his famous book ‘Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals’.

I graduated from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University in the spring of 2008, where I was a two time finalist in the Ira S. Flory Moot Court competition and a member of the 2007-2008 Moot Court Board.

I am currently enrolled in a Masters Degree Program at the University of Florida, distance learning, studying Forensic DNA and Serology. I hope to complete this masters degree in the summer or fall of 2019. I am also working on a book on meeting the challenge of DNA in the courtroom, hoping to publish concurrent with obtaining my degree.
