One of his largest cases resulted in a settlement for $45 million for local crawfish farmers.

These include industrial accidents, drug injuries, premises liability, railroad and train accidents, aviation accidents, boat accidents, offshore accidents, admiralty and maritime law, road hazards and highway defects, products liability and defective products, amputation, wrongful death, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, burn injuries, medical malpractice, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and car accidents.
