About Nicholas

Learn Nicholas’s areas of practice.

Nicholas J. Muscarello, Jr. was born and raised in Hammond, Louisiana.  A graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas Regional Catholic High School and Southeastern Louisiana University.  He received his juris doctorate from Southern University Law Center.


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 he went into private practice, where his practice areas include Criminal Defense Law, Personal Injury Law and Family Law.  In addition to his private practice he currently represents the Village of Tickfaw as a prosecutor.


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.

A Great Lawyer to Put Your Trust In!
When I first made contact with Mr. Muscarello Jr. it was following an accident caused by a spacey driver who pulled out on my driver and I as we were getting on a turning lane. It was a mess, and we were unable to handle it ourselves. Mr. Muscarello Jr. took on our case and our up one heck of a fight. He battled the insurance and did everything he could to get both my driver and I the most ideal outcome for our situation. He made all the calls to the other insurance, kept on top of them, and didn’t let them get out of fixing our car despite their best attempts. He was very patient, his secretaries were always kind, and it was easy to get in contact with him when needed! He even pulled some massive strings to get us the best payout he could! He was also super upfront with the information on the case and let us know what we could expect far in advanced. I’d definitely recommend him if you are in a wreck, especially if injury is involved!

Strongly recommend
Mr. Nicholas did a great job on my case. He believed in me when others didn't. He looked my case over and said the other person had no chance in getting away with what she did, and made her insurance pay. Thank you Mr. Nikki for believing me when I said this lady pulled out of the parking lot in my lane and did not stop which caused me to collide with her.

Not forthcoming with information
Much to cost driven for me. All he talked about was the fee. Did not hire him. Could not or would not give me direct answers. Kept saying he was not sure how long my case would take. This lawyer seemed more interested in my paycheck stub. Ran out of his office.
