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.
Growing older, Wills, Trusts, estate planning, Powers of Attorney, became necessary but confusing and unimaginable for me, to both understand and deal with. That is until my son brought me to Rabalais Estate Planning. Suddenly someone with knowledge, experience and understanding was advising me. A week late I received complete drafts, the documents for my approval, along with a glossary of legal terms. Everything was exactly as I had hoped. A great burden was lifted from my mind as I signed my name to the final documents with deepest thanks to Paul Rabalais.
I am first of all very satisfied with Rabalais Estate Planning because they made me feel comfortable talking to them and not afraid they would make me feel so uneducated. They were all very friendly from the lady at the front desk to Mr. Rabalais himself. They explain things so you understand in layman's words and answer any questions you want to ask. They make sure that they understand exactly how you want your estate planning out and guide you to make sure you are covered on everything. I am so glad I went to the seminar to learn about planning a trust so my family will have no troubles and worries when my husband and I pass away.
Your law firm handling our Estate Planning was truly a blessing to us. Doyle and I were totally happy with you and your staff's professionalism. You explained everything in layman's terms which was a comfort to us. I have and will continue to share our advantageous experience with family and friends. WE are truly thankful to you and your staff.
For a long time we've been concerned about our assets and what would happen to them after or death. We wanted to protect our family either through a will or trust. Rabalais Estate Planning clarified the difference of the two so the choice became an easy one for us to make. We now have peace of mind and don't worry about what the future will be for our family, thanks to Rabalais Estate Planning. Paul Rabalais and his staff were very professional, friendly, and helpful in taking care of our needs.
I found Mr. Rabalais to be very "down to earth" in his presentation. I felt very comfortable speaking with him and his staff here in Lake Charles is great.
Thank you for making us feel at ease. Your explanations were very helpful in taking us through the process. We would recommend your services to everyone.
Years prior to setting up a Revocable Trust, Rabalais Estate Planning had made our Wills and other necessary documents. This made getting the Trust an easy process. One visit to discuss the Trust details, review of the draft documents, and one last meeting to sign the documents. The whole process went very smoothly and was done professionally. Thanks for helping up save money in the long run and to simplify the process the Trustee has to go through to settle our estate.
Estate planning is not something anyone looks forward to so we tend to put it off as long as we can. Once we decided it was time, Rabalais Estate Planning made this process easy to accomplish. We sat down with Paul and his staff and they explained in detail our options and helped us make decisions that were best for our family, thus making the estate planning process go smoothly. Everything was presented to us in a way we could understand what needed to be done. Thanks to Rabalais Estate Planning we can now be assured that we have taken care of our estate and made things as easy as possible for our family.
Paul Rabalais and his team has helped and served me and my family since 2005 after attending one of his seminars. I followed up the seminar with an appointment to evaluate my family situation and was pleased with the attention he gave my complex family. After experiencing the loss of several family members, I was comforted and secure knowing that everything had been taken care of prior. It all took a couple of appointments to sign papers because all had been done years before. Thank You.
Both Dara and Catherine were very knowledgeable and helpful in the preparation and handling of our Estate Planning documentation. They made the process easy and painless.
Mr. Rabalais, You are very thorough and detailed in explanation of every aspect for estate planning. We just wish we would have known you sooner and had your expertise before now - but it is never too late or too soon to get your affairs in order. Thank God we did this and have peace of mind. Our wishes and concerns are taken care of before something terrible happens to us. This is a very tailored service that you and your firm provide. It is worth so much more than the upfront fee we paid. Thanks to each of you and God bless!
Very thorough program. Everything of importance was covered. We felt very relieved after everything was signed - I had been through a long, extended process after my mother died. We both know that everything will go where we wanted it to go.
As my wife and I began to develop questions concerning our will, probate problems, and in general what are Louisiana's laws concerning these things, Paul Rabalais offered a short evening seminar to talk about just such things. The seminar was very helpful, basically bringing up idea we had never considered. Mr. Rabalais offered us a very informative book he had written which gave us a way to study terms he had discussed in his seminar. After we asked Mr. Rabalais to help us with our estate planning, we met and he developed items for us to consider as he asked questions about lives and wishes. Everything done was easy, comfortable, and logical. His law office is occupied by dedicated professionals and my wife and I have had a burden lifted. We are grateful for Rabalais Estate Planning's help.
All of my requests were met! My Will read correct and changes were made in a timely manner.
We were very impressed how professional our meeting were handled. Each personnel we had contact with treated us with the greatest respect and kindness. All of our questions were answered to our understanding. We would definitely recommend your law firm to everyone.
Thank you for your direct service with my wife and I. I say direct because we were mixed up as to what to do about our estate, but you made it pretty easy. Thanks a bunch.
We would like to thank you for your help in explaining some of the complicated Louisiana laws pertaining to our estate. The information you provided was simply put. We also appreciate you sharing with some of our adult children from out of state who happened to be visiting at the time of your visit. Thank you for being easy to talk to and understanding as well. We look forward to working with you in the future.
The handling of my mother's succession was extremely professional. A very easy process for me and my siblings. Everything was explained to us on a step by step basis. You and your staff were the utmost professionals.
Don’t put off the important decisions because they seem like they will be too complicated or take too much time. Chris walks you through the entire process and makes it so easy. It makes you wonder why I waited so long!
