Blane is a lifetime resident of Baton Rouge, attending St. Aloysius and Catholic High School.  Upon earning a B.S. from Louisiana State University in 2008, he worked as a project manager for Woodrow Wilson Construction, where he remained until he started practicing law in 2016.   During his construction career, he was involved in the construction of over $100,000,000 in new construction projects, with individual projects budgeted in excess of $20,000,000.  His experience is rooted primarily in public works construction.  Through that experience he recognized the benefits a law degree has in the construction industry, and in 2011, he started his legal education by attending evening classes part-time.  Blane worked full-time as a project manager and safety director during the day, and attended law school at night, until earning his law degree in 2016, graduating first in class. 

 
His legal experience includes nearly every facet of the construction industry, including private works, public works, renovations, flood restoration, and federally-funded projects.   He regularly represents contractors, subcontractors, owners, engineers, sureties and insurance companies in defending or prosecuting their claims.  Blane also has extensive experience in a variety of matters outside of the construction industry including complex and high profile governmental matters, administrative actions, general commercial matters, and estate planning.
