I would highly recommend Paul. He clearly knows the Estate Planning business and how to apply it to each situation effectively. I feel like I got good value for the money spent.
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 professional, very well in explaining the law, very accommodating for elderly parents, very reasonable fee for services rendered. Nothing negative about my family's experience.
- Very interested in our life concerns.
- Relaxed setting.
- Pleasant staff.
- Took the time to go over our Wills.
- Like that we did phone meetings to save time and make sure that all was in order.
- Gave suggestions.
- Reasonable fee.
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.
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.
The procedure for uncovering all our needs was very professional with many appropriate suggestions. We were made to feel very comfortable. All of our questions were answered in a friendly and professional way. The staff showed a thorough understanding of all aspects of the law and tax code. The work was done in a timely manner at a very reasonable price.
"We used Rabalais Estate Planning because at the time we had lost both our parents and we are still trying to finalize my mother-in-laws succession three years after her death. We wanted someone experienced in estate planning so our children would not have to go through the same problems we are experiencing now. We received exceptional services from Mr. Rabalais and all his associates involved in our specific needs. They informed us of things that were available and what would be best for our estate plans. The entire staff are friendly and caring people, yet very professional. If you have questions, they will take the time to listen and then explain it to your. They do not rush you at all. We highly recommend Rabalais Estate Planning. They will give you the best advice available for your needs and the price is extremely affordable. Well worth the visit!"

"Rabalais Estate Planning turned out to be an excellent choice for us. Everything was done in a competent and professional manner. Some minor changes needed to be done after the original drafts were drawn up, but as promised, there were no additional fees."

"Thank you so very much for handling the revisions of my Texas trust. After having spent 7 months with attorneys in New Orleans - and astronomical cost, you came along and did everything you promised - short time period, reasonable costs, and an organized, customized, and highly superior product. Your advice and professionalism was excellent. Your staff displayed great listening skills and thoroughness. I have no complaints- it was all positive and absolutely great! I would be happy to recommend your services to anyone. I just wish I had known about you sooner. Again, thank you all so very must!"

“Mr. Naquin and I saw your ad in the Clarion Herald and decided this made sense for us at the time. We contacted you and made an appointment to see you at Chateau Country Club in Kenner. There we saw and heard what made sense to us, as we knew little about trusts. Your explanations were clear enough for even us. At Rabalais Estate Planning, we were treated speedily and courteously when action started immediately. We find your fees very reasonable for the time and services you offered us. Thank you very much!”
