Attorney Profile

The principal attorney at the Palazzo Law Firm, Leo J. Palazzo has developed an excellent reputation as a litigator. Located in Gretna, Louisiana, he divides his practice between the representation of New Orleans-area clients who have been harmed by the negligence of others and the defense of people who have been charged with felonies and misdemeanors.

Mr. Palazzo's personal injury and wrongful death cases include medical malpractice, motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents, premises liability, defective products, toxic torts, and construction site accidents. Due to his location in the New Orleans area, he has extensive maritime experience as well, and his knowledge of the Jones Act and the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act enables him to assist victims of offshore drilling accidents as well as commercial and recreational boating accidents. Mr. Palazzo's criminal defense practice encompasses drug possession and distribution, assault and battery, sex offenses, driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, and violent crimes such as manslaughter and homicide. Many of his criminal defense clients are tourists who were charged with crimes while visiting New Orleans.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Mr. Palazzo received a Bachelor of Science from the University of New Orleans in 1988. He then attended Loyola University New Orleans College of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1993. Mr. Palazzo is also a graduate of the Trial Lawyer's College, founded by the famed Gerry Spence. He is admitted to practice before all Louisiana state courts. An active participant in several professional organizations, Mr. Palazzo's memberships include the Louisiana Association for Justice, the Louisiana Land Title Association, and the Plaquemines Parish Bar Association.
