New 4th Edition of “Estate Planning in Louisiana” for 2018

Very excited to announce my new, 4th Edition of my book, "Estate Planning in Louisiana, A Layman's Guide to Understanding Wills, Trusts, Probate, Power of Attorney, Medicaid, Living Wills & Taxes," published in 2018.

I wrote my book's first edition back in 2011. Every few years both Congress and the State of Louisiana change enough laws that require me to update my book. But there had not been an update in the last four years. 

This edition is the best one yet. Topics covered include President Trump's new estate tax laws, the "unique to Louisiana" forced heirship and usufruct laws. More emphasis on popular topics of avoiding probate and protecting assets from nursing home expenses. There's new information on completing the Louisiana Succession, including new laws on sealing Succession records and the new Small Succession Affidavit procedure.

You can purchase it for yourself or as a birthday, Father's Day, or Christmas gift for another - especially if they are a senior citizen.

It would mean a lot to me if you would read a copy and write an review. You can order the book through Amazon at the following link:
