Attorney Carter B. Wright provides guidance in all estate matters, from estate planning to successions. Individuals and families in Covington, St. Tammany Parish and the surrounding parts of Louisiana can benefit from the three decades of experience he brings to these issues.
Planning Your Estate
Creating a will and an estate plan is important for people of all ages, particularly those with children. You want to make certain that your assets are passed on according to your wishes and that your affairs are handled accordingly when you are no longer able to handle them yourself. Do not assume that your loved ones will know what to do or that the law will dictate that your assets pass on correctly. If you do not have a will, the law may dictate that your assets are given to individuals other than those you would prefer. Your estate may get tied up in probate court, resulting in probate costs and a loss of time for your heirs.
By creating a will and estate plan with the guidance of a lawyer who understands the complexities of the Louisiana laws that pertain to these documents, you can rest assured that you have made choices that reflect your careful consideration of the available options. In your estate plan, you will be able to determine guardianship for any minor children or adult dependents, specify succession of specific assets such as possessions and property, and even help your heirs save on estate taxes.
In addition to wills, Mr. Wright can assist with the creation of trusts, powers of attorney and other estate planning mechanisms.
Have You Lost A Loved One?
If you need to open a succession to address the assets and affairs of a deceased loved one, Mr. Wright can help. Succession is the term used in Louisiana for the process that is referred to as probate in other states. Mr. Wright can help you find and follow wills and other estate planning documents or guide your loved one's estate through the succession process if no estate planning was done. He is committed to taking the stress of this process away from you and your family in this time of mourning.
