Making The Complex Understandable

What a living will means in Louisiana

Having a plan in place in case life takes a turn is important for family members. Louisiana residents who have a living will may be doing a favor for their loved ones.

Family law: Naming a guardian for children

The last thing people want to think about is not having the right guardian in place for their children in case the unforeseen should happen and they pass away.

No parents want their children to be cared for by just anyone, but that might be a possibility if they don't name a guardian in a formal, written document.

The senior population is one of the easiest targets of scams. For the most part, the elderly are very trusting and so it comes as no surprise that many older folks are taken advantage of by fraudsters and suffer this kind of abuse.  In fact, seniors in the United States -- and Louisiana is no exception -- have lost billions of dollars to shady deals and dealers. An elderly woman from Louisiana recently found herself embroiled in one of these scams.
