Estate planning.
I attended an Estate and Life Planning workshop conducted by Losavio and DeJean, LLC. I went in not knowing what was involved in Estate Planning. After the session was completed, I left with the knowledge that I would ask Peter Losavio to be the lawyer for me and my family. I was impressed with his staff and the way they took messages and always answered the phone promptly. The experience of working with Pete Losavio was a pleasant one. He always talked to us, never at us. He not only answered our questions, but included all the other issues we should be aware of and addressed them. There was never anything left on the table, not discussed and attended to. It is not difficult to understand why Pete Losavio is considered one of the top 100 Super Lawyers in Louisiana for Elder Law. It's a privilege to recommend him to anyone seeking the best lawyer there is. His knowledge and respect for the law is apparent. After leaving his office with all of our paperwork completed and the knowledge that we can call him anytime with questions is a peaceful feeling. It is comforting to know I have our eatate planning taken care of for my children, (I know their dad in heaven is too). I feel that I was part of a team with a great lawyer and we had completed a job well done.

Highly Recommend
I highly recommend Losavio & DeJean for estate planning! They helped my grandfather, Eli, and my daddy, Robert, obtain government benefits and prevented them from losing their home and savings.

Estate Planning
We hired Pete to do our estate planning and he and his staff did an amazing job. They prepared wills, living wills, advanced medical directives, powers of attorney, and set up an investment trust and a residence trust. All work was very professional and done quickly. We had a minor glitch with our bank but Pete and his staff went out of their way to fix the problem at no additional charge. We were always treated with courtesy and respect and would recommend them for anyone who might need to do estate planning.

Estate Planning
I can truly say that I don't know what I would have done without Mr. Losavio during the last years of my parents lives. I had no idea how complicated things could get when faced with having to put my Mother in a nursing facility. My parents didn't have a lot but they did have some assets and if it wasn't for the guidance of Mr. Losavio, they would have lost everything that they had worked their whole life to gain. Not only is he one of the top 100 Super Lawyers in Louisiana for Elder Law, he is genuinely a nice guy who has such a heart for helping others. I highly recommend to everyone who has aging parents to seek advice. Save yourself the anxiety of what to do and go see Peter Losavio. Patti

Special Needs Trust
I hired Mr. Lovavio several years ago to create a special needs trust. I am so appreciative of his help through that difficult time. He has continued to be my lawyer and I have never once regretted that decision. His knowledge enables him to create and offer options that are best for you as an individual. He communicates with language that is understandable and he welcomes your questions. He actually enjoys talking with you and helping you. Kind is a word that immediately jumps to mind. The bottom line for me is I trust him. I highly recommend him.

Excellent Elder Care & Estate Protection
Very knowledgeable concerning the requirements for Medicaid. With his help I was able to qualify my wife with dementia for Long Term Care in a very good assistant living facility. He also provided excellent financial advise for my current and future assets. He is very easy to talk to and understand.

Elder law and estate planning
When my mother faced going into a nursing home, we thought that she was going to have to spend all of her life savings. Mr. Losavio was able to save her life savings and protect her home, getting her qualified for Medicaid quickly. This happened within a month of her entering the nursing home. I would highly recommended him for any work needed when time is of the essence.

Very Knowledgeable
Mr. Losavio was very helpful in doing estate planning for my mother after my father passed away. He was recommended by a financial advisor as one of the top eldercare attorneys in Louisiana. He was able to help us with every legal detail and guided us through the process so that were able to make the right financial and legal decisions for our mother. We feel confident now that we have made all the right decisions and taken all necessary steps to keep her secure and preserve the estate as much as possible while following the letter of the law.

medicare & estate planning
Relocating after Hurricane Katrina and knowing no one in the Baton Rouge area Pete and staff have been a blessing to my family. Having been rejected by Medicare we were looking for legal counsel. Pete took on the Dept of Health & Hospitals when the Dept of Health & Hospitals were not following their own guidelines. He came highly recommended by my aunt's nursing home and later for my mother's estate. After 2 court battles and wins I am proud to say that I would with utmost respect, recommend Pete Losavio.

The Government is waiting to devour your assets. Mr. Losavio will legally secure them.
Like many, I was unprepared when my mother fell and injured herself, which sent her to live in a nursing home. The fall left her mentally incapable to care for her finances, and I was drowning in a sea of uncertainty. In one short, free consultation with Mr. Losavio, I learned how to protect my mother's house and savings from the ravenous jaws of the Federal Government. In just a couple of weeks, all the paperwork was complete, and I had peace of mind. Mr. Losavio even took time from his Christmas Holiday to meet my mother and I at the nursing home for the final signatures. Finding a lawyer with this great of knowledge and compassion was truly a godsend. I recommend that you don't wait as I did for tragedy to force you into a situation that you are not prepared for. If you have to ask yourself if you need to plan ahead, then you do, make an appointment now.

"I recently asked Pete if he could help my client in a personal injury case regarding a Special Needs Trust. Pete was fantastic! Pete answered all of my client's questions and my questions and did so very quickly. Because of Pete's knowledge and experience, my client was able to make the best decision possible to both settle her case and to protect her rights to the benefits she has been receiving for years. I give Pete my highest recommendation. Lindsey J. Leavoy"
