Probate Lawyer in Allen Parish

What is succession?

Referred to as probate in other states, succession is the process that distributes property to heirs and beneficiaries of a deceased person, called the decedent. If the decedent leaves a valid will, his or her property will be passed down by the executor named in the document according to the terms of the will. If the decedent did not leave a valid will, his or her property will be distributed by a court-appointed administer, according to Louisiana intestate law. Our Allen Parish wills & successions attorneys understand state law and can assist you in honoring your loved ones' last wishes if you are serving as an executor or administrator.

Plan for Your Future

Estate planning can help protect and provide for your family. If you pass on without a valid estate plan, your property will be distributed according to Louisiana intestate law. To ensure your assets are passed down to beneficiaries you choose, our legal team can work with you to write a comprehensive estate plan. By getting to personally know clients and understand their needs, we create estate planning documents that will provide families and the courts with clear information about their last wishes. We have more than 100 years of combined experience, and we are well-equipped to draft the proper estate planning tools for your needs.

Helpful Estate Planning Tools

Wills and trusts are valuable estate planning tools that can help ensure your loved ones receive your property. Drafting a valid will allows you to pass down your assets as you wish, name a guardian for minor children, and select an executor to administer your estate. If you are leaving small children, a trust can help you to give them property over a period of time, instead of a lump sum once they turn 18-years-old. Trusts also offer a variety of benefits, including helping avoid probate and allowing you to put terms on the trust.
