Allen Parish Wills & Successions Attorney
Our Client-Centered Approach
Do you know what will happen to your property when you pass on? If leave
no estate plan in Allen Parish, your assets will be distributed according
to Louisiana intestate law. Although you may wish to leave jointly-owned
assets to your spouse, your children will inherit your share of the community
property as well all of your separate property. Using estate planning
wills and trusts—the legal team at Hebert Holmes & Bertrand can help ensure that
your assets will be passed down to the beneficiaries you choose.
Estate planning is intensely personal, and we understand that each of our clients has
a different family, assets, and wishes for the future. By communicating
frequently and working closely with our clients, we believe that we can
create wills and trusts that more accurately express their desires for
their loved ones and property. Clients come first at Hebert Holmes &
Bertrand, and our team of Allen Parish wills & successions attorneys
genuinely care about them, their families and their legal matters.
Knowledgeable Counsel for Executors and Administrators
Established in 1978, we have more than 35 years of experience assisting
clients in Southwest Louisiana. Our Allen Parish wills & successions
attorneys are well-educated and have over 100 years of combined experience.
In addition to holding their Juris Doctors, our lawyers have a wide variety
of complementary certifications, including being a former prosecutor and
title agent for title insurance companies.
Losing a loved one is difficult, and attempting to sort out their property
while you are still grieving can be even more challenging. If you are
serving as an administrator or executor for a loved one's estate,
we are well-equipped to walk you through the
succession with our understanding of state law. Louisiana succession law is much
probate law in other states, but we can counsel you on such matters as intestate
succession, usufruct and forced inheritance.
Efficient Service with Technology
Despite our success, we strive to continually improve. We are a team of
intelligent, experienced lawyers with excellent credentials who are dedicated
to pursuing the best outcome for every client. By staying up-to-date on
the latest technology and developments, we believe we are providing clients
with the best possible help. At Hebert Holmes & Bertrand, we believe
technology can help us provide our clients with the best possible legal
experience. Although we enjoy interacting with clients face-to-face, we
believe communicating through email can be beneficial for small or pressing
questions. Our entire staff is proficient in the use of computers, and
we use case management software to track our files and help us manage
our work and time better.
Ties to the Community
We believe maintaining ties to the community is important, and we work
with a variety of governmental and other organizations. All of our attorneys
are licensed to practice in the Coushatta Tribal Court, the court of a
local Native American tribe in Allen Parish, and are members of the Coushatta
Tribal Bar Association. Our attorneys also held additional positions in
the community, including serving as the criminal prosecutor for the 33rd
Judicial District, chairman of the Southwest Louisiana Partnership for
Economic Development, chair for committees of the Louisiana Title Lawyers
Association and city attorney and magistrate for Elton, Louisiana.
