Metairie Will And Trust Lawyers

Buchler and Buchler is a family legacy. Our law firm was founded in 1949, and our attorneys — all brothers — have represented individuals and businesses in Metairie and throughout southeastern Louisiana for generations.

Collectively, our lawyers have more than 69 years of legal practice experience — commensurate with the experience of larger law firms, but while retaining all the advantages of a small, client-focused law firm.

The following are some of the ways in which we leverage our experience to help people like you:

Estate Planning

We assist clients in creating estate plans that preserve assets and provide direction for health care using various legal tools, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney and living wills/health care directives, among others. We represent family members and representatives of deceased parties in administering wills and trusts and in postmortem planning. We also assist clients in meeting tax obligations on behalf of the estate, and provide representation to individuals and families in probate-related proceedings and disputes.

Probate (Succession) And Estate Administration

Depending on the nature and content of your estate plan, we can help you with the accompanying estate administration or succession duties. We can help you identify and carry out responsibilities, including distribution of the estate, management of estate assets, accountings of assets and liabilities, resolution of creditor claims, defense against beneficiary claims, real estate sales, passing on a family business after the death of the owner (business succession) and trust administration.

Real Estate

We provide guidance and representation to individual and business clients in residential and commercial leases, transactions, closings, foreclosures and purchase and sales agreements. We also litigate all real estate matters, including disputes concerning purchase and sale contracts, title disputes and title insurance claims. Our attorneys are agents with First American Title and can perform title examinations to research property histories and establish clear titles or identify encumbrances.

Business Formation

We represent businesses of all sizes and stages of growth with their legal needs, including writing articles of incorporation and other founding documents for limited liability corporations (LLCs), corporations and partnerships, as well as drafting and reviewing contracts and in buying and selling assets.
