Working with the right Estate Planning or Probate Lawyer:

We work most of our lives to support our family and provide for retirement. Most of us want to achieve maximum enjoyment of the fruits of our labor over our lifetime and have our remaining assets go to family and close friends upon our death. Deciding who will receive our property, in what proportions, the timing of their receipt and the amount of control they will exercise are all considerations in crafting our estate plan. These are only examples of the types of decisions which you will have to make. When we lose a family member it is necessary that title to the assets they own reach the persons they intended and that the law is followed to allow them to be placed into possession of those assets through Louisiana succession proceedings that must be filed.  Usually this can be accomplished in an efficient and cost effective manner with the right counsel guiding you through the legal process. Couple.signing.docs350.234

What to look for when searching for an attorney.

  • Find an attorney that has experience within the area of law you require.
  • Assure that your attorney is in good standing with the Louisiana State Bar and has no disciplinary record.
  • Check out the lawyer's website for areas of practice, experience, location and background.
  • Give the lawyer a phone call or e-mail to briefly discuss your situation to determine if the lawyer seems helpful and knowledgeable.
  • See if you can set up an initial conference with the attorney for an opportunity to review your situation and make a decision on whether this is the right person to represent you under the circumstances.
