John Veazey, the founder of John Veazey Law, L.L.C., is an attorney residing in Prairieville as a life-long Louisiana resident. John was born deaf and received a cochlear implant at the age of three. He grew up using Cued Speech, which was instrumental in establishing fluent communication with his family and jumpstarted a life-long love of learning. John graduated from Dutchtown High School in 2007 before enrolling at LSU, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in History. Afterwards, he graduated from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at LSU in 2014.
John primarily works in real estate matters, business organization and transactions, estate planning, and disability civil rights. He is licensed to practice in the State of Louisiana and is able to appear in all Louisiana state courts. In addition, John is a member of the bar of all federal district courts in Louisiana and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
Outside of work, John is an active member of his church, the Chapel in the Oaks, and his Christian beliefs undergird everything that he does in life. His law practice is premised on the intrinsic value of each and every human being. To him, law matters because people matter. Quality legal representation and advice is something that most people will need at times as they navigate life. It is John’s passion to be there to lend a helping hand by providing that to you.
John is a member of the American Bar Association, Louisiana State Bar Association, Baton Rouge Bar Association, and the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Bar Association. Additionally, John serves as a board member for Deaf Focus and the National Cued Speech Organization (NCSA), as well as the Legal Affairs Liaison for the Deaf Grassroots Movement of Louisiana. In his free time, you can often find John with his two beloved Boston Terriers, no matter where he is. He is also a bibliophile--perhaps an understatement. Another of John’s passions is herpetoculture, which he has enjoyed ever since his dad first brought home a captured snake or lizard for his young son to admire.
