Business Matters in Louisiana
My firm can help you resolve all types of business issues, including the following:
- Setting up LLCs - When starting a business, forming a limited liability company (LLC) enables you to combine the limited liability of a corporation with the operational flexibility and tax benefits of a partnership. You must go through a multi-step process in order to set up the business.
- Collections - Obtaining legal counsel can help you exert pressure on clients that are refusing to pay for goods or services. Proper counsel enables you to have legal support during the pre-trial, trial and post-trial period, thus giving you the best chance possible of getting reimbursed.
- Property Transactions - An experienced business matters attorney can provide you with valuable support when purchasing or selling a property, and can help you navigate the multiple issues that can arise from such a transaction. Issues can include ensuring the title is valid, working with city officials on coding and other topics, dealing with existing tenets' demands and conducting modifications to the sale contract.
- Construction Liens - When you complete work on a property, only to have the owner refuse to pay you, filing a construction lien can result in a claim being put on the property. This lien stipulates that you must be reimbursed before the property can be sold, or obtain reimbursement from the proceeds of the sale.
I'm available to work relentlessly on your behalf in order to help you with your legal needs. I will fight vigorously on your behalf, as well as will stay in touch with you throughout the process so you can always get answers to your legal questions.

How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?
A personal injury accident is the result of the negligent, reckless or careless action of another. An accident that occurs from the use of a dangerous or defective product is an example of a personal injury accident. Another example is a drunk driver who causes a car collision with injuries or fatalities. In the case of negligence, the victim may be eligible for monetary compensation that can include lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Beau Layfield and The Layfield Law Firm, LLC can represent a client in court and negotiate with insurance companies to pursue the maximum possible compensation.
Is adoption a long process?
Each adopted child has different circumstances. There are several types of adoptions that could take place, including a stepparent adoption, a private adoption or a standard adoption. Each has its own specific challenges. With the help of my firm, we will speed the process through the system as quickly as we can so that you can begin your new family and move forward with starting life together.
Do I have to go to court in order to obtain a divorce?
Filing divorce papers with a court is the only way you will obtain a legal separation from your spouse. This applies to any other form of legal separation, including a marriage annulment. Aside from the divorce decree itself, a court is able to assist in settling other matters related to divorce, which include child custody and the distribution of marital assets.
How will child support be calculated?Child support is calculated differently depending on the state one resides in, but the general factors taken into consideration by the court when calculating payments include:
- the standard of living of the child prior to the divorce;
- the ability to pay of the parent giving child support;
- the specific needs of the child, including their food, clothing, and educational costs; and
- the needs and income of the custodial parent (the parent with primary custody of the child).
Should I take a settlement offer?
It is never a good idea to settle an insurance claim before speaking with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney that has experience with injury accident cases. Insurance companies have tactics they use to deny claims, redirect fault, and withhold available compensation. An insurance claim can be a complicated process and insurance adjusters can be intimidating to accident victims. An insurance company may assert that the injuries are not as serious as claimed, and attempt to settle quickly for a low amount.
