What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning is the process that allows individuals to choose how their property is to be managed and distributed upon their death or incapacity. This process allows individuals to opt out of Louisiana’s default laws concerning who will be able to manage or receive their property upon death or incapacity.

Two of the most essential tools used in estate planning are Testaments (also known as Wills) and Trusts. In order to eliminate or reduce any potential legal complications upon your passing, it is essential to have an attorney oversee the creation of your estate planning documents. This is especially true in Louisiana, where our inheritance laws are much more complicated and restrictive than other states’ laws.

At the Leger Law Group, we view Estate Planning as a highly personalized process. Every individual begins the process with his or her specific goals and needs in mind and our attorney tailors his or her documents to achieve those goals and needs.
