Estate Planning

Many people think that estate planning is something that only the elderly need to think about. But if you have family members who depend on you, it's never too early to make important decisions about your estate.

The Rowe Law Firm can provide you with creative, efficient and compassionate advice about how to plan for the passing of an estate or property to friends, family, businesses, or organizations and charities.

We have fought hard to earn the trust and loyalty of clients in Baton Rouge and throughout Louisiana. We welcome the opportunity to do the same for you or your loved ones. Our estate planning services are designed to offer you the peace of mind you deserve, no matter your age or the state of your health.

Custom-Tailored Estate Plans To Suit Your Needs

We draft wills and probate documents with the goal of meeting and exceeding the needs and goals of our clients. We can help you make sure that even complex assets and large estates are handled properly. We will tell you about your options and guide you to the most efficient succession and probate.

An experienced attorney can tell you about alternatives to succession that can save time and trouble. A trust, irrevocable trust, revocable trust or charitable trust might be more appropriate for your needs and goals. Successor trustees may be needed or clarified to better match the intentions of a trust or estate. Our clients want to make sure that wealth distribution and liability protection are proper to reduce burdens on the people they want to give to.

Sometimes, the assets of an estate can be managed in such a way as to protect the interests and comfort of the living and reduce costs, including taxes. A special needs trust may be appropriate to care for the well-being of an aging individual or someone with special care requirements.
