Metairie Business Succession and Trust Lawyer Helping You Prepare for the Future
For the past several years, I have helped families in New Orleans and throughout southern Louisiana take proactive steps to safeguard against future problems relating to your estate and property. With a deep understanding of Louisiana estate laws, I am prepared to help you plan for your future using various estate planning tools such as:
- Will: A will is a legal document in which you can state your wishes for your property and how your estate should be handled after your death.
- Living will: A living will is a legal document in which you can express your wishes about the medical treatment you should receive in the event of your incapacitation. This is usually where you can address your wishes for the use of life-sustaining measures such as defibrillators, ventilators, feeding tubes, etc.
- Power of attorney: Granting someone power of attorney gives that person the power to act on your behalf in legal, business or medical matters, depending on what you decide upon.
- Trust: A trust is an instrument which allows property to be set aside, separate from the estate for the preservation that property and to provide future benefit to a loved one.
