Estate Planning Attorney
Baton Rouge LA
Estate planning refers to the preparation of tasks that will manage an individual’s assets in the event of their incapacitation, death, and which include the bequest to heirs. Many estate plans are created with the help of an experienced estate attorney like you’ll find on our team.
Our team is made up of licensed and experienced lawyers who have a deep understanding of federal and state laws that will affect how your estate will get valued, distributed, taxed, and inventoried after your death. The receipt of probate is the first step in administering the estate of a deceased person. The probate court is responsible for validating and approving a will.
In addition to educating you about the probate process, we can assist you with the following tasks:
Creating a will, designating your beneficiaries, establishing a durable power of attorney and medical power of attorney, finding ways to reduce and avoid estate tax when possible, and for the benefit of your beneficiaries after your death.
If a beneficiary (or even an individual not designated as a beneficiary) announces that he or she plans to contest the will and sue the estate of a deceased family member or loved one that you also stand to benefit from, it might be in your best interest to consult an estate planning attorney immediately.
Our team is trained in Uniform Probate Code, which imposes rules and limits to wills and trusts.
