We attended one of Mr. Rabalais' estate planning seminars in Baton Rouge. I must say that I was dreading going by I knew the "free meal" would be delicious because of it being at Flemings. I had attended a couple of other seminars in the past and was totally "lost" with all of the information presented. It was not on a level that an average person could understand. But I can honestly say that Mr. Rabalais' seminar was NOT like that. He was very thorough, down-to-earth, and I actually found the seminar pleasant and enjoyable. John and I are both so relieved that we went and have been able to plan this part of our lives and do not worry about what will happen with our estate when we are gone. He and his staff has been very professional and thorough in all of these matters and we highly recommend him to anyone needing this type of advise.
We are very pleased with the estate planning services provided by Paul Rabalais and his talented staff. As a long retired CPA, I thought we were well-prepared via wills. But Paul quickly pointed out the substantial benefits of a revocable living trust to eliminate the need for costly and extended probate filings. Updated living wills, powers of attorney and the estate planning portfolio which consolidated all relevant documents into one folder were added benefits. Importantly, we found the fee for this service is very reasonable.
I am extremely pleased with Mr. Rabalais and his staff in the way we were treated when handling our estate. Mr. Rabalais was very personable and explained it in great depth. I have used lawyers in the past with other legal matters, but I would have to say I had a better-than-average experience with this firm. I will be recommending the firm in the future to my friends.
We are very pleased with the legal services provided by Mr. Paul Rabalais. He reviewed our wills and trusts prepared in another state and explain the requirements of Louisiana laws pertaining to our personal situation, he helped us prepare our Wills, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, and Trust for our children. He provided sound legal advice to us and was very understanding of our special needs for our handicapped son. He took time to answer all of our questions and was very receptive to making changes to documents in order to make them easier for us to understand. We found the fees to be very reasonable and recommended his services to anyone needing help planning their future.
We recently had Mr. Rabalais formulate our Wills. Everything was very well organized. He was very thorough in every detail of our Wills. We were very satisfied with the finished product and how it was presented. We also really appreciate the fact that our appointments were kept promptly.
"Very professional and thorough. Timely and dependable, exceptionally knowledgeable. Answered all questions and made some suggestions we had not considered. Would definitely recommend the services of your law firm to friends and relatives."

"The first time I met Paul was when he came to my school a few years ago to give a talk on estate planning. I was still in my late 30's and had not really thought much about having a will made. Fast forward a few years and I began to understand the importance of having a will in place because I've lost of couple of family members. Making a will is a very serious issue and can actually be a little depressing thinking about all the details that must be thought out when having it written. Paul made my wife and me completely comfortable when discussing all of those details. The meeting was relatively short, and he put together a very comprehensive booklet based on the conversation we had at that meeting. I highly recommend Paul and his staff to anyone taking the very serious step of having a will written."
