Our practice areas include, but are by no means are limited to, wills and estate planning, successions, real estate transactions and title disputes, personal injury, contractual disputes, construction law, business and commercial litigation, and general counsel services.

Our Client-Centered Approach to Estate Planning

Do you know what will happen to your property when you pass on? If leave no estate plan in Allen Parish, your assets will be distributed according to Louisiana intestate law. Although you may wish to leave jointly-owned assets to your spouse, your children will inherit your share of the community property as well all of your separate property. Using estate planning tools—including wills and trusts—the legal team at Hebert Holmes & Fontenot can help ensure that your assets will be passed down to the beneficiaries you choose.

Estate planning is intensely personal, and we understand that each of our clients has a different family, assets, and wishes for the future. By communicating frequently and working closely with our clients, we believe that we can create wills and trusts that more accurately express their desires for their loved ones and property. Clients come first at Hebert Holmes & Fontenot, and our team of Allen Parish wills & successions attorneys genuinely care about them, their families and their legal matters.

Knowledgeable Counsel for Executors and Administrators

Established in 1978, we have more than 35 years of experience assisting clients in Southwest Louisiana. Our Allen Parish wills & successions attorneys are well-educated and have over 100 years of combined experience. In addition to holding their Juris Doctors, our lawyers have a wide variety of complementary certifications, including being a former prosecutor and title agent for title insurance companies.

Losing a loved one is difficult, and attempting to sort out their property while you are still grieving can be even more challenging. If you are serving as an administrator or executor for a loved one's estate, we are well-equipped to walk you through the succession with our understanding of state law. Louisiana succession law is much different than probate law in other states, but we can counsel you on such matters as intestate succession, usufruct and forced inheritance.

Efficient Service with Technology

Despite our success, we strive to continually improve. We are a team of intelligent, experienced lawyers with excellent credentials who are dedicated to pursuing the best outcome for every client. By staying up-to-date on the latest technology and developments, we believe we are providing clients with the best possible help. At Hebert Holmes & Fontenot, we believe technology can help us provide our clients with the best possible legal experience. Although we enjoy interacting with clients face-to-face, we believe communicating through email can be beneficial for small or pressing questions. Our entire staff is proficient in the use of computers, and we use case management software to track our files and help us manage our work and time better.

Ties to the Community

We believe maintaining ties to the community is important, and we work with a variety of governmental and other organizations. All of our attorneys are licensed to practice in the Coushatta Tribal Court, the court of a local Native American tribe in Allen Parish, and are members of the Coushatta Tribal Bar Association. Our attorneys also held additional positions in the community, including serving as the criminal prosecutor for the 33rd Judicial District, chairman of the Southwest Louisiana Partnership for Economic Development, chair for committees of the Louisiana Title Lawyers Association and city attorney and magistrate for Elton, Louisiana.
