I was born and raised in Donaldsonville, Louisiana and graduated from Ascension Catholic High School in 1980 and then from Louisiana State University in 1984, where I received a B.S. degree in Finance. I continued my education at Loyola School of Law in New Orleans, receiving a Juris Doctor degree in 1988. I returned to Ascension Parish after law school to begin my legal career and resided there until moving to Baton Rouge a few years ago.
My professional associations include memberships in the 23rd Judicial District Bar Association, the Baton Rouge Bar Association, the Louisiana Association for Justice, and the Louisiana State Bar Association. I am licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in Louisiana.
I organized and taught classes at The People’s Law School in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, and assisted as coach for Ascension Catholic High School in the 23rd Judicial District Mock Trail Competition.
I am married to Courtney Capone Sotile and the father of six children, Virginia, Anna Claire, Thomas, Matthew, Vincent III and Luke. I am a member of and attend Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
I see my law practice as an extension of my community activities. It is a chance for me to use my skills to help people. I would like to help you with your legal issues as well.
