Knowledgeable Wills & Trusts Lawyers

When it comes to estate issues there are two choices: you can decide what happens to your assets or the law dictates what happens to your assets. At Modica - Dowden in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, we have significant experience helping people develop wills, trusts & other documents to ensure that they determine what happens to the assets they have spent a lifetime building.

Experienced Wills and Trusts Attorneys

Many people do not draft a will, create trusts, or have estate documents because they believe their estate is too small. However, wills can serve a number of functions, including naming a guardian for minor children, selecting an independent executor for the estate, or creating a trust for grandchildren or family members with special needs. There is a broad range of estate tools that can be used to direct assets and establish who will make financial and medical decisions if you become incapacitated. Some of these are:
  • Wills and trusts
  • Durable power of attorney for property
  • Living trusts
  • Living wills
  • Advanced health care directives
  • Health care power of attorney
  • Business succession plans
At Modica - Dowden, we work with you to create wills, trusts and estate documents that are appropriate for your situation. We can continue to modify your plan as your life changes. Marriage, the birth of a child, divorce, and retirement are all important times to reexamine existing estate plans.
