Peace Of Mind at an Affordable Price
No one should be without a plan. Our New Orleans estate planning attorneys at SVHC pride ourselves on preparing effective and efficient estate plans at a wide variety of price points, If your needs are simple, we are usually available to offer flat fees or bundled packages for clients who select multiple services in their estate plans.
Many people decide to compromise by simply buying a bunch of documents online. We never recommend that route. The problem with this approach is that you have no way of knowing if the document is enforceable in your state, nor if it reflects the latest developments in the law. Additionally, it might be a perfectly fine document, but there are execution and recording requirements that may cause problems later. True peace of mind comes from knowing everything was done the right way – let us do that for you.
