After graduating in 1979 from Louisiana State University’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center, Mr. Womack won judicial clerkships in the Louisiana State District and Appellate Courts.  Afterwards, in 1984, he began private practice with Durrett, Hardin, Hunter, Dameron & Fritchie, working under Roger M. Fritchie, one of the premier trial lawyers in Louisiana.  While working for Roger Fritchie, Mr. Womack began representing hospitals and physicians, defending medical malpractice, general liability, and medical staffing cases.

Upon the death of Mr. Fritchie, Mr. Womack moved his practice to Taylor Porter, where he is a partner.  At Taylor Porter, Mr. Womack has continued the representation of hospitals and physicians, but additionally, has expanded his practice into the areas of toxic tort and environmental regulatory work.

A 1976 graduate of LSU, Mr. Womack is admitted to practice in all Louisiana state courts, the Federal District Courts for the Middle, Eastern, and Western Districts of Louisiana, and the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
