When a close family member dies, you may find yourself dealing with pushy relatives, confusing legal documents, and the Louisiana court system. Suddenly, on top of planning a memorial, you also have to figure out what to do about your loved one’s estate. This can be an overwhelming task, but the Estate & Probate Division of SVHC Law is ready to help. In fact, when you contact our office in New Orleans’ Central Business District, we’ll tell you what you need to do without charging you a thing!

Schedule a Free Quick Estate Evaluation™

Every estate in Louisiana has to go through some form of succession—known as probate in other states. For some estates, this is a quick and easy process. For others, it can be much more involved and difficult. Many estate planning and succession law firms won’t tell you which kind of estate you’re dealing with until you pay a retainer. We’re not like that. 

We’re happy to take a quick look at your situation and tell you honestly whether you need an attorney to help you or not. If we can help you through the succession process, we will tell you how we’ll do it and what it will cost you. If a conflict arises with a family member, our experienced litigators will represent you in court.

We’re Here for You When You Need Us

Life is unpredictable. It’s impossible to plan ahead to settle a family member’s estate, but you can plan ahead to make sure your own estate is in good shape if something unexpected were to happen to you. With our estate planning services, we will put together a plan that meets the needs of your unique family. We will also make sure you have the necessary documents in place to protect your assets and yourself if you become incapacitated.

Our succession and probate team helps hundreds of families every year with succession issues, estate plans, incapacity planning, and legal conflicts, so it is likely we have successfully handled the situation you are facing.
