Wade is an experienced litigator who handles cases in federal and state court.  He is licensed to practice in Louisiana and Texas.  Wade has experience trying cases before both judges and juries throughout most of Louisiana.  He has also obtained favorable outcomes for his clients from several Louisiana appellate courts.

Wade has devoted his entire career to insurance companies and their insureds.  His current practice involves defending insurance companies and their insureds in personal injury matters, whether it be motor vehicle accidents or injuries on the premises of the insured.  He has also represented insurance companies and their insureds in matters involving construction defect and products liability.

Wade believes in providing his clients with the best possible representation while not losing sight of litigation cost.  The first attorney that mentored Wade told him that before you do something for a client, ask yourself whether you would pay for the work if you were the client.  To this day, he keeps that in mind.

Wade has earned a Martindale Hubbell Peer Review Rating of “AV Preeminent,” based on legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience.

During his free time, Wade enjoys spending time with his wife, Joni, and his two children, Spencer and Rachel. He and his family enjoy vacationing to the Marriott’s Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL and Walt Disney World.
