Estate Planning and Probate
We often advise families and individuals who are residents of other states but own real estate and mineral interests in Louisiana. Our lawyers can assist in planning for the efficient transfer of such assets, and provide representation in “ancillary” Louisiana succession proceedings in conjunction with probate proceedings in the decedent’s resident state.
Our experience includes:
Marital Property Agreements (Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial)
Family Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies
Gifting-Family and Charitable
Estate and Gift Tax
Business and Commercial Transactions
Dayna M. Ryan focuses on the needs of older adults, which are often different and more specialized than the needs of younger adults. Not only does she handle important financial and estate planning matters, she also assists families in taking care of day-to-day issues affecting the actual care of seniors, such as assisted living and life planning.
