Baton Rouge Successions Attorney

Louisiana Probate Lawyer

When facing the succession of a loved one's assets, it is common to worry about time and expense. We have all heard rumors that succession can take years and cost thousands of dollars. The truth is that many successions typically take a month or two to complete.

At my law office, I strive to help my clients as economically and efficiently as possible. Successions require strict attention to detail. I, attorney Dale M. Maas, pride myself on maintaining constant contact with you as we progress through your case. I am committed to helping my clients understand successions and how to probate a will.

In Louisiana, the process through which an estate is addressed after a death is called succession. In other states, it may be called probate. Though the two terms may be used, the processes are very similar and in some cases, identical. A succession is a legal proceeding where the heirs and beneficiaries of an estate are recognized, the estate's property is identified, and any existing will is probated.

Real estate issues are addressed through the succession process. This can include ensuring that the title to a property is properly recorded and transferred to heirs. Also, the payment of any debts held by the estate is completed.

Out-of-State Clients

I am able to handle successions and the probating of an estate for clients who have had family members pass away in Louisiana. Since I am fluent in the language of the estate planning laws here, and am extremely familiar with the processes, I can handle the process for clients in other states. I stay in close contact through phone, e-mail and fax communications so clients know how their case is progressing, even though they are miles away.
