Commited to Louisiana and the Gulf Coast

Our goal is to foster long-term relationships
built on trust, accessibility, and productivity.


Representing and protecting YOU:

we never forget that our business is about people.

Experienced New Orleans trial lawyers Scott Galante and Sal Bivalacqua provide exceptional representation in a wide range of legal matters, and their track record speaks for itself.

At Galante & Bivalacqua, we have two main goals: to provide attentive personal service and achieve superior results for every client, every time.

For businesses and individuals throughout the Gulf Coast, we are committed to serving our clients’ legal needs while assertively pursuing their goals. From securing multi-million dollar recoveries for mesothelioma victims to advantageous resolutions of sophisticated white-collar disputes on behalf of a wide range of business clients, we stand by our clients and are here for them every step of the way.

We understand that each case presents its own unique challenges, and each client has their own concerns. We treat all of our clients with respect and understanding and approach all of our cases and with the same philosophy: all businesses, no matter their size, and all individuals, no matter their station, deserve top-notch and cost-effective legal representation when faced with economic or personal challenges.

Committed to Serving the Gulf Coast

We are attorneys Scott Galante and Sal Bivalacqua.  Although our firm has successfully represented businesses and individuals in courtrooms throughout the country, we maintain a special commitment to the state of Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. In recent years, the Gulf region has suffered a number of setbacks. The emotional, social, and financial toll of these events has revealed the depth of character of the people who call this area home. Galante & Bivalacqua is honored to represent individuals, families, and business owners throughout the region who are facing challenges and require exceptional representation. 

Complex Business and Admiralty Litigation

We devote a large portion of our practice to complex areas of law that require specialized knowledge. As a Gulf Coast law firm, we have spent years handling the intricate legal matters common to maritime law. As changes in legislation allow for further exploration and harvesting of our nation’s underwater resources, there is bound to be an increase in litigation related to these matters. We are poised to take on these challenges as they develop.

Additionally, as business owners ourselves, we understand the needs of business owners both small and large. When someone fails to honor an obligation or if you are facing other situations that threaten your business goals – or your company’s very survival — you need experienced attorneys prepared to aggressively protect your assets and your livelihood.

Legal Representation for Injured Individuals

Whether you have been injured or have developed a serious illness due to a company’s negligence, we know how to fight for individuals. When someone engages in an activity that causes you harm, you require an experienced legal team who will listen to you, answer your questions, be accessible when you need them, and zealously pursue your claims with an effective legal strategy designed to efficiently achieve results.

At Galante & Bivalacqua, we have successfully handled a wide variety of personal injury matters. We also have specialized knowledge in the realm of toxic tort litigation and mesothelioma cases, and have secured multi-million dollar recoveries in the face of powerful opposition. We believe that injured victims deserve personalized attention from their legal representatives, and we are focused on helping clients understand the law and their choices when it comes to pursuing a claim. Although we are seasoned, successful trial lawyers, we also recognize that settlement is often a better solution.
