Wills and Successions

The passing of a loved one is always a difficult situation. We're here to help.

It's about taking care of those you

Family Matters - Wills and Succession Orleans Legal

When people pass away, the property they leave behind is called their “Estate.” What everyone is entitled to, and how should it be transferred officially and legally is why you need a lawyer. We act either by the terms of the will (testament) if one exists, or if not, under Louisiana’s succession laws, to move the property from the estate of the deceased to the heirs left behind. This is why you need an experienced attorney to help to transfer these assets, as well as enforce the wishes of the deceased. ​

We offer full will writing services.  Whether you need something basic, or something complex to account for more assets, we can help you make sense of your planning choices.  Death is the last part of life.  It is expected, but still – don’t let it take you any more by surprise than it has to.

Living Will

This is just a form in Louisiana – but we can help you to understand the decisions you make based on how you feel about hospitalization and end of life care.

Last Will & Testament, Worry Free.

Most Louisiana Wills and Successions are put into the executor’s control in order to resolve issues of the estate, or what remains after you are deceased.  Additionally, this person is responsible for hiring legal representation for the estate.  If this person is you, our attorneys can walk with you through what needs to be done to make sure things are done right.
