Mardi Gras Madness

While the Fertitta family’s San Luis Salute is typically one of the social season’s hottest tickets, this year’s Mardi Gras bash was downright sizzling. A VIP kickoff reception — Veuve Clicquot and margs, naturally — near Tilman’s yacht gave way to the colorful main event at the island’s convention center, which included numerous photo ops against backdrops of paper flowers, oversized puppets, festive dancers and more. The entire night culminated with a concert by Usher, who packed the dance floor by singing hit after hit for over an hour!

Thrive & Inspire: ‘I Believe in Having Employees that Are Happy,’ Says Wilvin J. Carter

Wilvin J. Carter, The Law Offices of Wilvin J. Carter P.C.

WHAT'S THE SECRET to running a successful business? I have found that there is no real secret to running a business. I abide by a set of principles that have allowed my business to grow and flourish for the past 15 years. First, I make sure that our team is competent on the laws and the facts surrounding all my clients’ individual cases. Secondly, I am always staying abreast of the public’s temperature as it relates to hot button topics that may affect prospective jurors who will be determining the outcome of my clients’ cases. More importantly, my clients’ feelings and needs are always at the forefront of our legal representation of them. Our clients’ happiness is the most important aspect of my business. My law firm obtains excellent results for our clients and in return, they refer their friends and family to us for legal representation. Client satisfaction is not a secret.
