About me

Chip LoCoco was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he attended Jesuit High School and received his BA degree from Loyola University in 1990 with a concentration in History. He then went on to receive his J.D. degree from Loyola University Law School in 1993 and joined his father's firm, Many & LoCoco, after being sworn in as an attorney in October, 1993.

Chip's emphasis in his law practice is probate, wills, estate planning, interdictions, powers of attorney, living wills and trusts. He has also been appointed by the Court in complex matters to represent the interest of individuals in many differing areas of law.

Martindale-Hubbell has given Chip an AV® Preeminent rating as an attorney, which is the pinnacle of excellence awarded by the Bar and the Judiciary to any individual attorney, recognizing that Chip has the highest possible rating available in legal ability and ethical standards. Chip was named by New Orleans Magazine as one of the "Top Lawyers"  in the New Orleans area.

Chip is the member of many professional organizations such as the New Orleans Bar Association, the Louisiana State Bar Association and the St. Thomas More Catholic Lawyers Association. He is a Member of the Trusts, Estate, Probate and Immovable Property Law Section of the LSBA. He is also a Member of the New Orleans Estate Planning Council.


Chip is also involved in many social and community organizations such as the Krewe of Thoth, the Cefalutana Society and he is a Member of the Metropolitan Opera Guild. Chip is the current President of the St. Pius X Parish Pastoral Council and is the Recording Secretary for the St. Pius X Men's Club. He also serves on the St. Pius X School Board.

Away from law practice, Chip pursues his other interests. He is a recognized novelist. He has authored two novels, Tempesta's Dream and Bellafortuna. He gives talks on opera and Italian culture. He is also involved in coaching baseball and soccer in the community.
