St. Tammany Parish residents have a convenient option when scheduling a free Quick Estate Evaluation™ with Scott | Vicknair Law, Estate & Probate Division. Our Covington office is available for consultations by appointment. If it is difficult for you to get to our main office in New Orleans, we invite you to take advantage of this option. Whether you need advice about settling a family member’s estate or are looking to write a will or sign a power of attorney, our legal team can help at either location.

Dealing With an Estate After a Family Member’s Death

Every estate—no matter how small—has to pass through the Louisiana court system before assets can be distributed and the estate can be closed. This process is known as succession. In certain situations, this is a simple process and does not require the help of an attorney. With other estates, you would be wise to hire legal representation to make sure your loved one’s wishes are honored. With our free, unique Quick Estate Evaluation™ service, you can find out which kind of estate you are dealing with and make the best decisions going forward.

Planning to Protect Your Assets and Property

In addition to managing successions, we also offer comprehensive estate planning services and consultations to prepare for your own possible disability or incapacity. By working with us to set up trusts, name guardians for underage children, sign powers of attorney, and make your wishes known in a living will, you can live with the peace of mind that your assets and family will be protected if something happens to you. Our attorneys will explain all of your options, the pros and cons of each, and tell you what we recommend when we meet to discuss your goals and desires.

Estate & Probate Is All We Do

You may have a relationship with an attorney who worked on your divorce, real estate closing, or personal injury claim, and they may be willing to help you with an estate or succession issue. But while they may be attorneys who do successions, we are succession attorneys. Call us to find out the difference.
