Probate and Louisiana Law

Louisiana has very strict probate and successions laws that control where property goes after someone dies. If there is no will, the state makes certain assumptions. The first assumption is that the children should inherit before the spouse. The next is that for separate property, nieces and nephews should inherit before a spouse. If you are a spouse, you need a law firm that understands these laws to protect your interests. The Pesnell Law Firm specializes in these laws as well as the major changes in law that was recently enacted by the Louisiana Legislature.
