Hi my name is Angela and I am passionate about helping your family leave a legacy that is a comfort and joy to your loved ones. This drive comes from personal experience when I watched a poorly created plan destroy my once loving family. That experience created a desire in me to create a firm that cared for the families it served. My journey to law school, however, took many twists and turns before I could achieve this dream.

I began as a wife and mom. My desire to help others led me to become an inspiring speaker, coach, and trainer helping people with personal and business success. I spent over 20 years empowering adults and youth across the US. My Executive Director level with the John Maxwell Team, my own published works, and my transformational events allowed me both then and now to leverage a number of resources to empower business owners, leaders, and youth to unleash their potential. My business, Leadership Solutions, is still helping build leaders in my community.

Despite my many successes I still remembered the hurt and chaos that happened to my family and I knew that I just had to do something. I went back to school and received my JD from Southern University Law Center. Of course Estate Planning was a natural fit. My passion for helping families leave a legacy is just as strong as it was for helping families build their legacy. 

In addition to working with families, I bring 40 years experience starting and operating businesses.  I've worked with such organizations as SCORE, MBECA, and the Louisiana Small Business Association to help entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses. This gives me a unique perspective on both business creation as well as business succession planning. 

I look forward to serving you and your family.
