Abbeville/Lafayette Succession Planning Lawyers

Succession And Probate

The Sonnier Firm is an established multipractice office in Abbeville, Louisiana. Firm founder Charles Sonnier provides effective legal counsel and advocacy to clients throughout the area and utilizes over 50 years of practice experience. In the area of succession, probate and estate planning, we seek to guide our clients toward plans and outcomes that best fit their specific circumstances.

Succession and probate are often considered difficult and expensive. In the past, probate meant excessive inheritance taxes. Now, however, probate is a more streamlined process, especially for those who have a will. Having a will in place may not prevent the need for the succession process, but it can set you up for the future. Our succession planning lawyers have experience guiding clients through the succession and probate process.

Estate Planning

Estate planning is something everyone should consider. Our clients seek to protect their property and make decisions regarding how their assets and responsibilities will be handled. We utilize estate planning tools such as wills, trusts, powers of attorney and others to set forth our clients' goals and preferences. We explain various options and set expectations for what is involved with creating an estate plan.

We are committed to following developments in banking, finance and taxation laws as they relate to successions, probate and estate planning. We provide comprehensive advice and advocacy designed to address each client's goals.
