SUCCESSIONS / PROBATE
The attorneys at Robichaux, Mize, Wadsack, Richardson & Watson, L.L.C., have extensive experience in dealing with succession and probate matters. The term “probate” refers to the legal process through which ownership of an individual’s estate is formally transferred to his or her heirs after death. For some successions, the process is relatively simple and involves only collecting and cataloging the individual’s assets, liquidating liabilities, and distributing ownership of the remaining estate to the heirs. However, for individuals with more complex estates, a wide array of issues can arise through the probate procedure and must be settled prior to the closing of the succession. Our firm provides advice and guidance to our clients in order to navigate through the probate procedure in the most efficient and effective way possible.
