Civil Practice Experience

Succession and Probate

In Louisiana, every adult should have a durable Power of Attorney, and probably a Living Will – but not every adult needs a Last Will and Testament.  Lane can help you decide which of these vital documents you need to execute, ensuring your peace of mind and often saving you unnecessary expense.

From helping you plan for the inevitable end of life issues to handling all of the probate and succession matters on the death of a family member, Lane’s practice is dedicated providing clients with a full scope of probate and succession services.

  • Wills, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills
  • Trusts
  • Successions
  • Contested Probate Issues


What best suits your corporate plan:  an LLC, a corporation – or perhaps you’re looking at a non-profit operation?  We prepare the necessary documents that meet your particular need including obtaining federal tax identification numbers and handling filings with the Louisiana Secretary of State’s corporate division and the local clerk of court office.

Has your business or non-profit corporation been sued?  We provide continued representation to our clients involved in corporate and business litigation matters.  You may have insurance coverage for these claims, but you may not.  You need an attorney to help answer these questions — Lane’s over 20 years of corporate experience will provide you the answers to those questions and more.

Personal Injury

So, you’ve been injured in an automobile accident in which you were not at fault – who do you contact first for repairs and medical costs:  your insurance company or the company of the driver who hit you?  What do you tell the adjuster who calls your home?

The day you retain our law firm to handle your personal injury case is the day we begin working to help you recover your property damage losses and your health care costs, along with any costs associated with lost wages due to injuries, and all damages.  We deal with the adjuster directly, so you won’t have to.

Moreover, we maintain consistent contact with you to ensure you are kept abreast of all of our efforts on your behalf.
