Estate Planning
Don’t leave a mess behind for your family with an unplanned estate. Avoid family conflict by creating a clear path for your loved ones to settle your estate. We make planning your estate easy by addressing your specific concerns and explaining your planning options. Whether you need a trust-based plan to avoid probate or a will-based plan, give your family piece of mind with a plan!

Elder Law and Medicaid Qualification
You’ve worked hard for what you have. As a retiree or senior you may be concerned about needing long-term care and going broke in the nursing home, or leaving your spouse destitute. Or maybe you’d like to leave your home and some of your hard-earned savings to your children … instead of letting Medicaid and the government take it.

You may be worried about your parents and their care needs. If a parent has memory or mobility issues, or gotten a diagnosis of dementia, you know that their need for care is likely around the corner or the need is already here. John can provide you with answers to providing the care they need while protecting their home and life savings from the nursing home.

As an elder law attorney, John helps families avoid the devastating financial impact of a long-term care need. Whether you are planning far in advance of a long-term care need or have loved one currently residing in a nursing home, we can help preserve between 50% to 100% of their assets and qualify for Medicaid.

Successions and Probate
Have you lost a loved one and need guidance navigating the succession process in Louisiana? We understand that the probate and succession process can be unfamiliar and intimidating. We will advise you on each step to ensure you avoid potential pitfalls and delays. When a loved one passes away, you should seek the guidance of an experienced probate and successions attorney who can guide your family through this process.
