New Orleans Wills Lawyers

Knowledgeable Louisiana Estate Planning Attorneys on the Super Lawyers® List

A will is the most important tool in your estate planning arsenal. Having a properly executed will affords you the ability to control who receives your assets upon your death, and what portion they will each inherit. By creating a will, our clients spare their families confusion and uncertainty, at a time when they are already grieving a loss of a loved one.

At Scott, Vicknair, Hair & Checki, LLC, our New Orleans estate planning lawyers work with you to identify those items you may want to specifically designate to individuals after your passing, as well as to guide you through the process of dividing your estate, so everyone you love is taken care of according to your wishes. Our experienced lawyers can help you to identify the proper parties to be named as executor of your estate, and even assist you in designating night care for your pets or children, if your end is unexpected.

Don't Wait Until It's Too Late

We never know what tomorrow brings, and it's important to plan for the future today. Thinking of your own mortality can be unpleasant and unsettling, especially when you are in the prime of your life, but you're never too young to have a will. If you have assets or children, a will may be vital to protecting yourself and your loved ones, and waiting until it's too late can have devastating consequences.

Accessible And Affordable.

A simple will can be prepared, executed and notarized at a minimal, flat-fee cost. This up-front investment in your future can save your loved ones thousands of dollars by avoiding a lengthy succession (probate) proceeding as a result of your careful planning. Those long, contested succession proceedings often create family rifts that cannot be easily mended-we don't want that for your family. We are also sensitive to the needs of our clients and understand that you may be unable to come to us.

In addition to meeting at our office, we often meet clients in:

  • Hospitals
  • Nursing homes
  • Hospices
  • Other locations where they are receiving medical care
