New Orleans Personal Injury Attorneys
Louisiana and New Orleans are certainly unique. Louisiana is known world-wide as the "sportsmans' paradise." New Orleans is the city that "care forget"! It has a longstanding reputation as the fun capital of the world. But what also makes Louisiana different is that our legal system is founded on the Napoleonic Code. It is the French Civil Code established under Napoleon in 1804. In every other state the legal system is rooted in the Common Law. The Common Law is modeled after the Anglo-influenced system found in England and other Anglo-influenced countries.
Since the systems are so different, if you are involved in a car crash in Louisiana it is important to hire a skilled lawyer who has studied and practiced law under the French Napoleonic system.
We have a statewide practice with our offices located in the heart of the Warehouse District. This is the area where the 1984 World's Fair was held. We have provided high quality legal services to our clients in these areas of New Orleans: Uptown , French Quarter, New Orleans East, Lakeview, Bywater, Central Business District, Marigny, Gentilly, Lower Ninth Ward and Mid-City.
Located in New Orleans at 829 Baronne Street, the Cardone Law Firm will provide high quality legal assistance throughout the city and surrounding areas.

Some common types of cases we handle are: car accidents, truck accidents, trip and falls, wrongful death claims, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, ATV accidents, accidents caused by drunk drivers, and any other type of injury caused by carelessness of others.
Car wrecks not only disrupt the victims life, they can have a ripple effect on the entire support system of the injured person.

We can arrange for your medical treatment at a location near where you work or live, whether its in New Orleans or even outside of Louisiana. Sometimes a deposition or additional defense medical examination is required should a lawsuit be filed. In those events, Mr. Cardone will have you see a film explaining what a deposition is and how to answer questions from a defense attorney. If a defense medical examination is ordered you will be guided through that process by Mr. Cardone with a face to face meeting to prepare you for your testimony or medical examination.
In the event of a trial, he will prepare you for your courtroom testimony in a face to face meeting to reduce your stress level and groom you to be the best possible witness you can be.Driving Under the Influence
The City of New Orleans is known for its laid back lifestyle. A place where millions of tourist visit each year to enjoy the hundreds of festivals that occur around the city. The French Quarter Festival, Jazz and Heritage Fest, Mardi Gras, the Louisiana Seafood Festival, Oktoberfest, and Essence Festival to name a few. All of these festivals are great to enjoy, but some people will suffer consequences if they decide to drink and drive after attending one of these events. The Cardone Law Firm represents people who have been charged with DUIs/DWIs. When a person is enjoying a few drinks he or she does not think of being arrested for a DUI/DWI, but once someone is charged with this crime they will see a spike in insurance payments. It can also affect their job. Cliff Cardone has valuable experience in handling these types of cases. Mr. Cardone has over 40 years of legal experience in handling DUIs and DWIs. He has sat as an Ad HOC Traffic Court Judge for over 20 years and knows the Traffic Court System as a former judge, prosecutor and defense lawyer.
