Baton Rouge Estate Planning Lawyer for Trusts

Ensuring that Your Final Wishes Are Carried Out

If you have property that you wish to leave to your family when you have passed, establishing a trust in your name may be the perfect estate planning option. Doing so can ensure that your final wishes are carried out and save your loved ones a great deal of time, financial cost, and emotional stress during a difficult period. At Leger Law Group, LLC, our Baton Rouge estate planning attorney has the necessary experience, skills, and resources to help you create this legal document and designate how your estate will be distributed.

Some of the benefits of establishing a trust may include:

  • Avoiding the expense and delay of probate
  • Keeping the details of your estate private and out of the public records
  • Ensuring that your plan is portable, even if you move out of state
  • Providing instructions for the management and distribution of your assets
  • Avoiding ancillary probate proceedings for real estate owned in other states
  • Providing protection for your heirs from creditors, ex-spouses, and many other unexpected live events

Save Your Loved Ones a Significant Amount of Time, Money, & Emotional Stress!

Trusts offer several advantages above and beyond what wills offer. They allow you to avoid the costly and public process of probate, which is a legal process used to validate or “prove” a will. Trusts also offer more portability than wills, so your estate plan will be enforceable wherever you move. Our Baton Rouge estate planning lawyer is able to help you create both revocable and irrevocable living trusts, and can ensure the specifics of this document adequately represent your unique wishes.

Our Satisfied Clients

  • “Siobhan and her team were wonderful to work with!”
    Siobhan and her team were wonderful to work with! They were quick to help me prepare for some estate planning needs that very suddenly became necessary. Estate planning can feel very overwhelming, but Siobhan was able to guide me through the process, so I was able to make informed decisions for the future. It is a relief to have a plan in place for my children's needs if something unexpectedly happens to me.

  • “Siobhan Leger and her team are fantastic.”
    Siobhan Leger and her team are fantastic. They way they helped me and my wife navigate the very daunting and emotionally charged landscape of our wills, our estate planning, and, most importantly, the custody arrangements for our two young kids (in the event of our death). It's brutal worst case scenario stuff but Siobhan was patient, understanding, and incredibly knowledgeable as we together went line by line getting all our ducks in a row. Now that it's taken care of, I can rest easy knowing my kids will taken care of if I die. Thank you, Leger Law Group.
