Patrick O’Neal has been practicing law for more than two decades. He has vast experience in personal injury litigation and Social Security Disability matters.
Patrick was born in New Orleans and raised in the small town of Maringouin, Louisiana. He received his bachelor’s degree in 1986 from McNeese State University and his law degree in 1991 from the Paul M. Herbert Law Center at Louisiana State University.
Patrick began his legal career as a prosecutor in Albuquerque, where he focused on child abuse cases and worked tirelessly to put criminals behind bars. He later moved into civil litigation, handling thousands of personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits brought by people who had been irreparably harmed by asbestos.
Patrick practices Social Security Disability law, devoting his time, energy and expertise to obtaining benefits for those who are sick or injured and can no longer work. He is accomplished in this field and has obtained much-needed disability benefits for hundreds of people across the country.
Patrick and his wife, Yvette, love to cook, hike and travel. They have four beloved grown children and a spoiled dog named Lucy. He enjoys movies, books and music and is an avid LSU football fan. He is currently teaching himself to play the banjo.
“I have dedicated nearly my entire career to helping everyday people. As a former prosecutor, I fought for victims of child abuse by sending criminals to prison. In nearly 20 years of private practice, I’ve fought fiercely to win compensation for victims of personal injury inflicted by large corporations, and to obtain disability benefits for hard-working folks laid low by illness. Sitting down with my clients, getting to know them personally, helping them regain hope, providing them with a measure of relief – these are the moments that drive me personally and professionally. I am excited that each day brings more opportunities to serve, to fight and to win.”
