Wills

Why Create A Will? To Protect Your Family.

Many people mistakenly believe that they do not need a will until they are elderly. This could not be further from the truth. Every adult should have a will. Life is unpredictable, and you must plan for loved ones’ futures in case you pass away.

Buchler and Buchler, LLC, has helped individuals and families in Louisiana for nearly 70 years. Our family-run firm, founded in 1949, will provide the experience and guidance that you need as you draft a will or revise an existing will to protect your loved ones.

What Should I Put In My Will?

Wills are very powerful tools when planning your estate. In your last will and testament, you may wish to:

  • Distribute assets to beneficiaries
  • Designate an executor
  • Select a power of attorney
  • Name guardians for your minor children or adult children with special needs
  • Address your debts
  • Create trusts

Your life is unique, so your will should be unique. Buchler and Buchler, LLC, can tailor your will to you and your one-of-a-kind needs.

Do I Really Need A Lawyer To Make A Will?

If you are researching wills, then you have probably seen the many do-it-yourself documents available online. Most of these are free, but you should not feel tempted to cut costs by making your will yourself. This can often become more expensive in the long-run for your family if the court does not uphold the will.

Working with an attorney like the ones at Buchler and Buchler, LLC, ensures that you create a legally sound will correctly the first time around. Your attorney can:

  • Analyze your finances
  • Discuss how to distribute your assets
  • Help you select beneficiaries, executors and powers of attorney
  • Handle the administrative paperwork
  • Create a will that holds up in court
