Nicholas J. Muscarello, Jr. was born and raised in Hammond, Louisiana. He is a graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas Regional Catholic High School and Southeastern Louisiana University. He received his Juris Doctorate from Southern University Law Center.
After law school, Nicholas wanted to seek out the place where he could get the most trial experience, and he was immediately hired by the Indigent Defender Board for the Twenty First Judicial District, which encompasses Tangipahoa Parish, Livingston Parish, and St. Helena Parish.
At that time, he defended hundreds of cases and tried multiple jury trials to their conclusion. Upon leaving the Indigent Defender Board, Nicholas went into private practice where he has remained ever since.
In addition to his law practice, Nicholas currently acts as Prosecutor for the Village of Tickfaw and serves as the City Attorney for the Town of Independence. Nicholas is also a member of the Louisiana House of Representatives, representing District 86.
Mr. Muscarello’s expertise at the trial level has aided him greatly in his civil practice. His goal is to keep the client informed at every step of their case, and even take the matter to trial in order to achieve the best result for the client.
