Your daily responsibilities of operating your business can keep you busy and sometimes overwhelmed. We offer services to help you with your business formation, general business, transactional work, and more so that you can focus on running your business.
Wills & Estate Planning
Our estate planning and elder law service takes an in depth look into your estate to offer real solutions to help protect your legacy for your loved ones.

Succession & Probate
When a loved passes, it is important to sit down with an attorney to evaluate the estate in order to make a well informed decision on how to proceed. Not all estates require a succession. If one needs to be opened, you need to get sound legal advice on the best options on how to proceed.

I was raised on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain in St. Tammany Parish. It was an easy decision to decide to open my law firm here in Covington, Louisiana to serve the community which I’ve been a part of for over 40 years.
I enjoy meeting new clients and helping them with whatever new opportunity, problem, or need that may have at the time.

We provide advice and understanding regarding the overall aspects of estate planning and end of life decisions.
When a loved one passes away, certain processes must take place to ensure the proper transfer of the decedent’s estate to their successors. This is accomplished through the process known as opening a succession or probate. Importantly, Succession/ Probate are how you obtain ownership and the ability to sell the possessions, such as real estate and vehicles, that make up the estate.
