Wills, Estates and Successions
It is widely reported that few Americans execute a will to lay out their wishes upon their death. In Louisiana, absent a will, state law will dictate how a decedent’s assets will be distributed, and to whom they will be distributed. If you would rather dictate how your assets will be distributed upon your death, call the attorneys at Pendley, Baudin & Coffin. We can assist you in drafting a will.
The passing of a loved one is always difficult on grieving family members. Many of these loved ones leave behind real estate, bank accounts, stocks, bonds, vehicles and other assets that must be distributed to the decedent’s heirs, whether the decedent had a will or not.
Pendley, Baudin & Coffin has represented many families in Louisiana after the death of a loved one to guide them through the process of opening the estate or succession, administering the estate or succession and distributing the succession assets to the heirs pursuant to a will or state law. The lawyers of Pendley, Baudin & Coffin are also experienced in handling litigation that may arise as the result of estate and succession proceedings, including challenges to the validity of a will; challenges regarding the interpretation of a will; and, disagreements amongst heirs regarding asset distributions.
