A Last Will and Testament is a crucial legal document that allows individuals to dictate the distribution of their assets according to their wishes after their passing. In Louisiana, forced heirs are limited to children 23 years of age or younger or those who are mentally or physically incapable of self-care. Beyond these restrictions, individuals have the freedom to dispose of their assets as they see fit.

At Todd Martin Law Firm, we emphasize the importance of having a comprehensive estate plan, including a well-crafted will. Our team is ready to provide a free consultation to discuss the creation of your will, ensuring that your intentions are clearly documented and legally sound.
