Elder and Special Needs Law

Attorneys within our Elder and Special Needs Law practice area focus on providing legal services to the elderly and those with special needs or disabilities, as well as their families. Families with children who have special needs may have to wrestle with complex legal issues that come about in providing day-to-day care, and in planning for the future care of their loved one. Because Elder and Special Needs Law is defined by the needs of the client, we take an individual approach to each case, knowing that every client and family is unique. Some of the various issues that our Elder and Special Needs Law attorneys can help you with include:

  • Durable Powers of Attorney (for health care and/or financial purposes)
  • Living Wills, Advance Medical Directives, and LaPOST (Louisiana Physician’s Order for Scope of Treatment) issues
  • Interdictions and interdiction avoidance
  • Continuing Tutorship for those with intellectual disabilities
  • Public Benefits Issues for the disabled
  • Wills and Trusts
