Practice Areas

NURSING HOME FINANCING/MEDICAID

Medicaid is a federal government program that pays long-term nursing home costs for people with low income and few assets (other than a house they own). Each state administers its own Medicaid program, with slightly different eligibility rules.

MENTAL HEALTH LAW

When a loved one is suffering a cognitive impairment or other mental condition that impacts his or her ability to function, it can be difficult to know when to step in and the best way to ensure he or she gets the care needed.

CONTESTED WILLS AND ESTATES

Do you dispute the validity of a will left by a loved one? For example, does the will appear to be in a proper form? Is the signature on the will that of your loved one? Was the will executed at a time of mental or physical infirmity?

UNCONTESTED SUCCESSIONS

Louisiana law uses the word succession to refer to the probate process. A Louisiana succession is a court proceeding to change title to assets from a deceased person to his or her heirs, legatees, or beneficiaries.

SUCCESSION UNDER ADMINISTRATION

Administration is the process of collecting and managing the assets, paying creditor claims, and dealing with any issues that must be resolved before the decedent's assets can be distributed.

SUCCESSION WITHOUT ADMINISTRATION

The most common form of Louisiana succession is a Succession Without Administration (sometimes referred to as a “Simple Putting in Possession”). In this type of succession, no succession representative is appointed and no administration is necessary.
