Losing someone is difficult. We make it easier.

In addition to the emotional strain, friends and family are also often burdened with managing the property of their loved ones, paying for funeral costs, dealing with life insurance companies, banks, utility companies, and more. On top of that, the legal process required to get ownership of your inheritance (known as “succession” in Louisiana, or “probate” elsewhere) can be complicated and confusing. Ciolino & Onstott can provide assistance with all of these issues through our full-service succession practice through affordable flat-rate and hourly packages.

Simple Successions

If a loved one has passed away leaving a small estate with little or no debt, or a will with simple bequests, then your estate can be handled quickly and easily with our simple succession package. For a low flat-rate, we will review your family's estate, draft the necessary documents, and secure legally appopriate recognition of your ownership of the inheritance as quickly as possible, so that you and your family can have closure on this important issue. If you think this product is right for you, contact us for a free consultation today.

Administered Successions

If your loved one passed with debt, complex or unknown assets, or a complicated will, then their estate will likely require administration. Ciolino & Onstott provides full service administration services. We can help you locate and account for assets and debts, administer the succession proceedings, settle creditor claims, transfer and liquidate assets, and help the rightful heirs get maximum value from their inheritance.

Contested Successions

It is especially taxing when there is a conflict amongst family members and friends regarding the property of the deceased. Ciolino & Onstott has the experience to manage these conflicts tactfully, and with an eye towards preserving your relationships while still zealously advocating for your rights.
