Bridges, Attorney at Law, I offer more than 25 years of experience helping families with all of the issues related to probate. Whether you have recently lost a loved one or you need estate planning guidance, you can count on honest, practical advice. Call 225-319-5541 or contact me online to schedule an appointment with an experienced Louisiana successions lawyer.

What Is A Succession?

Sometimes known as probate, a succession is the process through which the deceased individual’s estate and/or will is evaluated and the property is distributed accordingly. While these may be simple and straightforward cases, they can become extremely complicated matters.

I can help clients understand issues pertaining to an individual who has died with a will (called testate) or an individual who has died without a will or had a will declared invalid by the court (called intestate) and how these situations are handled.

Reach for confidence and assurance after the death of a family member. If your loved one had a valid will, my firm can take care of the estate administration so that you do not need to worry. While a succession can be complex, it is often much less expensive than people expect. If you need legal counsel regarding a contested probate matter, my litigation experience can protect your interests.

Handling The Drafting Of Wills And Other Estate Planning Tasks

In addition to handling all aspects of succession/probate cases and will contests, my firm also provides clients with guidance on drafting wills and other estate planning matters. When you come for help, you will not be left to speak with a secretary or assistant. I take the time to answer your questions and listen to your concerns throughout the estate planning process. Additionally, it is often possible to have your will completed and signed at your initial consultation, without the need for multiple visits.
