Helping You With Last Wills And Testaments

Contemplating death and how it will affect your loved ones is difficult, however — important. Clarifying how you would like your assets distributed eliminates potential misunderstandings and burdens on family members. In blended families, this is especially important.

If you die without a last will and testament, the court will divide your estate according to Louisiana law. Often, certain family members may be excluded under the law, and the outcome may not have been your intention.

Our experienced legal team at Salley & Salley, LLC, in Metairie, can help you draft a will that will protect your family’s future and align with your interests. Led by the experienced mother-daughter team of Sandra Salley and Laurel Salley, our firm can provide clients with tailored advice and guidance in a wide range of family law issues, including will drafting support. With over 50 years of combined legal experience, we have a reputation for our ability to handle complex matters, and we understand the intricacies of family law in Louisiana.

It Is Never Too Late Or Too Early To Protect Your Loved Ones

You are never too young or too old to protect your loved ones. No matter the size of your estate, drafting a will provides a layer of security so that you can be ensured that your wishes will be followed.

A will is a legal document that describes how you want your estate and affairs to be handled and distributed after you die or if you become incapacitated.

There are several reasons why you should create or update a last will and testament:

  • A marriage
  • Birth of a child
  • Divorce
  • Death of a family member
  • Illness
  • Extended travel or life change

Having a professionally prepared will allows you to ensure that your instructions are clear and legally valid. The goal is to eliminate confusion and frustration among your family members. We understand that this process can be emotional and confusing. We dedicate ourselves to helping you feel comfortable with your decisions.
