Born and raised in Bossier City, Evans is a descendant from the family of the city’s patriarch, Pierre Evariste Jean-Baptiste Bossier.

Franklin, a Shreveport native, received his law degree from Mississippi College School of Law. His private practice focuses primarily on criminal defense, personal injury, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, family law, successions and general civil litigation.
“We know the law, we know how to argue the law, we think outside the box and we know how to get favorable results,” said Franklin.
Franklin currently serves as a board member of the Walk-On’s Independence Bowl and Progressive Elder Care Services. He is a member of the Shreveport Chamber of Commerce, the Bossier Chamber of Commerce, and East Ridge Country Club. He’s married to Kathy French and has a son, Will, who is a junior at LSU Baton Rouge, and a daughter, Lillie, who is a senior at Loyola College Prep.
