A native of Westwego, he was Valedictorian of Westwego High School and received a full scholarship to Tulane University. The Second World War interrupted his undergraduate studies at Tulane and he instead attended the US Navy Hospital Corps School in preparation for being an enlisted Medical Corpsman.

As a student he was a member of the Law School Moot Court Board, the Dean’s honor student list and received the Juris Prudence Prize for Constitutional Law. He was appointed City Attorney for Westwego shortly after passing the bar. He was appointed as the 2nd Assistant District Attorney for Jefferson Parish in 1951. He served in that capacity until his appointment and subsequent election to the 24th JDC in 1971. In 1981, he was elected to the newly created 5th Circuit Court of Appeal where he remained until his retirement in 1987. During retirement Judge Currault continued to serve as a temporary judge in various courts and was appointed to serve as judge pro tempore on the Louisiana Supreme Court.
