Our Areas of Practice: Hebert Holmes & Fontenot

Our Probate Services in Allen Parish

Losing a loved one is difficult, and attempting to administer the estate while you are grieving can make the process even more challenging. Succession, referred to as probate in other states, involves collecting and managing probate assets, paying debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining property to heirs and beneficiaries. If you are currently serving as an executor or administrator, we can help.

Do you know what will happen to your property when you pass on? If you do not leave a valid will, your assets will be distributed according to intestate law in a way that you may not have wished. Hebert Holmes & Fontenot can draft wills and trusts to ensure that your assets are properly passed down, your loved ones are cared for, and your last wishes are honored. Louisiana has unique probate laws, including forced inheritance, that our Allen Parish wills & successions attorney can take into account when planning for your future.
