He knows how these rules work and shares that knowledge with anyone needing assistance. His devotion to helping colleagues and improving the tax system is part of his DNA.”

He received LCPA's Lifetime Membership Award in 2014, and was previously honored for his efforts in guiding Louisiana practitioners and taxpayers through Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav, Ike, and Isaac. He was named by CPA Magazine as “one of the top 50 practitioners to have in your corner when the IRS calls you.”
