Losing a loved one is one of life’s most difficult events. The emotional impact alone is tremendous, and when you are faced with a complicated probate procedure, known in Louisiana as “succession,” it can feel overwhelming.

At De St. Germain Law Office, our attorneys are dedicated to helping families navigate through the challenging times by offering experienced guidance and support. We will walk you through the succession process and help finalize all of the details so that you can focus on moving forward.

We can help with:

  • Beneficiary rights
  • Testate and intestate issues
  • Will contests
  • Notifying beneficiaries
  • Distributing assets
  • Paying creditors

We Offer Personalized Client Service

While having a will or trust in place usually can help avoid complex succession matters, they don’t necessarily prevent succession entirely. Distribution of assets and property can be one of the most highly contested parts of the process, even if there is a valid will or trust in place. It’s important to have an attorney on your side who understands your needs and is experienced in the courtroom.

Our lawyers take time to get to know our clients so we can best represent their needs inside and outside of the courtroom. Your best interests become our best interests, and we will work together to ensure your needs are met. We tailor our strategy to suit our individual client’s needs, and you can count on us to work hard for you.
