From simple to complex succession, our attorney can protect your rights in Louisiana court:

  • Succession without administration - This is a straightforward succession process free of conflict between relatives, issues with creditors, or other difficulties.
  • Succession with full administration - This administration process generally arises when the decedent leaves issues that must be handled by the estate administrator such as liquidating assets as needed to satisfy debts, or to liquidate those assets in order to satisfy legacies or other wishes of the decedent.
  • Intestate succession - An intestate succession is what we call a Succession when the decedent died without leaving a will. This could occur with or without a full administration, depending on whether there are any lingering issues that might require an administration. Louisiana law determines whether the spouse, children parents, and/or siblings inherit.

I can deal with creditors, sell property, resolve disputes among relatives, and distribute the estate, whatever is necessary to efficiently take care of the estate. No succession case is too complex for my time-tested, client-focused law firm. When you need legal counsel for any succession matter, I encourage you to speak with my firm at your earliest convenience.
