Estate planning is a critical step in safeguarding your assets and ensuring your loved ones are taken care of according to your wishes. Without a clear plan, families can face legal complexities and unforeseen challenges.

Wills are essential tools in detailing your wishes for the distribution of assets upon your passing. Without a well-structured will, decisions about your assets might be left to state laws, potentially not reflecting your specific intentions. Collaborating with Kallio Law Firm ensures that your will is crafted with precision and competence, providing peace of mind for you and a clear directive for your beneficiaries in the future.
Trusts are a tool used to support a proper will in the disposition of assets both during life and after death. While many firms push the Revocable Living Trust as a ‘must have’ in your estate plan, we encourage you to come talk with Kallio Law Firm to really see how a trust may, or in some cases may not, be the best fit for your estate plan. Our goal is to provide you with the most effective and efficient plan that suits your needs, not what someone wants to sell you. Quite often the use of trusts created by the will, or another form of trust might serve your needs better and save you money in the end.
A Power of Attorney, or Mandate as we call them in Louisiana, enables a person to appoint someone to manage their affairs and make certain decisions if they are unable to do so for themselves. All too often we hear people say, I am healthy, I do not need a power of attorney. But once you need one it is too late to get one. Prior planning is important to ensure you are protected and cared for should the unexpected happen. Talk with Kallio Law Firm about how we can put these protections and plans in place for you before you need it.
Succession, also referred to as probate, refers to the legal process of transferring assets and settling debts after someone passes away.

Elder care and Medicaid planning are essential components of preparing for the later stages of life, ensuring that individuals have access to the care they need without depleting their assets. With the ever-changing landscape of healthcare and government benefits, navigating these areas can be complex. Kallio Law Firm offers knowledgeable guidance in this realm, helping clients make informed decisions about long-term care options and strategizing to optimize Medicaid benefits while preserving assets for future generations.
Unfortunately so many people fail to plan for the unexpected and find themselves in a situation where they are unable to care for themselves or manage their affairs. Someone is going to have to care for them but they did not put a proper power of attorney in place. Interdiction may be the option of last resort. In an interdiction we petition the court to appoint someone as the guardian over that person. It is a delicate process, and unfortunately very personal for the family. Kallio Law Firm can help with this process to help your loved one get the care and protections they deserve.
