  • Siddharth Singh Chhokar

    I can unabashedly say that I have never met a lawyer more committed to their clients’ goals than Ronnie Stutes. Most importantly, Ronnie genuinely cares about his clients, their needs and families. Ronnie takes the time to get to know his clients and find out what their hopes, dreams and desires are before creating a customized plan. Whenever someone asks me for an estate planning referral in Louisiana, the only name I feel completely comfortable providing is Ronnie.
