Practice areas
  1. Probate
    Transferring property to the next generation can be tricky. Get the advice you need up front to ensure everything is done right the first time.

  2. Elder law
    Protecting an elderly loved one, their estate and their quality of life has never been harder nor more important.

  3. Estate planning
    Do you need a Will? But you don't want a Will, you want the peace of mind it gives. Ensure you can rest easy with a free estate planning consult today.

  4. Power of attorney
    If you are incapacitated, who will act for you? Don't leave it up to a Judge, choose for yourself with a Power of Attorney (and no, your spouse cannot automatically act for you).

  5. Trusts
    Planning for help paying for nursing home care? Need to ensure your children don't blow their inheritance within weeks? You need a trust.

  6. Wills and living wills
    Do you need a Will? But you don't want a Will, you want the peace of mind it gives. Ensure you can rest easy with a free estate planning consult today.

We do things differently at Field Law. We focus on your short- and long-term goals, not sacrificing one for the other. Ensuring when we have concluded your matter, you have peace of mind knowing everything is in its place.

I specialize in transparent flat fee representation for estate planning and uncontested successions. When there is a conflict, I am here to cut through the confusion and solve the issues quickly without unnecessary cost.

With free consultations and our upfront and transparent pricing, don’t wait any longer. The time to take care of your estate or inheritance is now. My staff and I are here to answer every question you have and to do all the heavy lifting to get you back to what’s important: your loved ones.

Call me today for a free initial consultation to find out how you can protect your estate and ensure a stress-free estate transfer process.

After obtaining my degree from Birmingham-Southern College, I chose to return to Louisiana and attend LSU Law. I am proud to call our great state home. Geaux Tigers!

Painless Succession
After my father died, we wanted to work with a lawyer who wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. We chose Morgan because he quoted us a flat price after our consultation and we were thrilled with the price compared to what some others were charging. Working with Morgan was so easy and he explained every step. I recommend Morgan to all my friends and family when they lose a loved one.

Quick and easy.
My wife and I were leaving the country for a vacation without our eight year old daughter. Morgan made sure our Wills were up-to-date and that we had extra copies of our powers of attorney to stick in our suitcase. He also recommended a special document so my mother-in-law could make decisions in case of an emergency with our daughter. It was quick and easy.
