Louisiana Succession Dispute Lawyer
The succession of an estate determines how the deceased person’s property and assets will be transferred to the successors. If the deceased left a valid will, the succession is considered testate and the estate will be distributed according to the will. If there was no will present, the succession is intestate and the laws of the state of Louisiana will determine where the property should go, according to a legally established hierarchy.
Disputes commonly arise during both testate and intestate successions. Contact Charles M. Rush for representation if you are involved in a succession dispute involving any matter, including the following:
- Disputes among successors and beneficiaries/will disputes
- Accusation of undue influence
- Competency and lack of capacity issues
- Questionable changes to a will
- Handwritten will or multiple wills
