Additional Information

From earliest stages of inception throughout operations and even eventual sale, businesses need sound legal advice and guidance. In Louisiana, the laws are slightly different than they are in other states, so it is particularly important to hire lawyers with experience and knowledge about local and Louisiana state laws. The law firm of Echols & Associates, L.L.C. provides services throughout the lifecycle of your business.

Early Stages of Business Start-up,As you begin a business, you are faced with many decisions. From the name of your enterprise to how many employees you will hire, you may find it overwhelming. An experienced attorney can help you make decisions that will shape the future of your business, including the type of entityyou should form.

Tax law is one of the most complex and intricate areas of law. The practice is highly technical and many of the laws differ from one state to another or one type of business to another in subtle but important ways. It is extremely important to get advice on issues related to this area of the law from legal professionals who understand tax law in general and the local regulations as they affect you, your assets, and your business dealings. Echols & Associates, L.L.C. provides a range of legal tax-related services to meet our clients needs, whether it is long-term planning to avoid unnecessary tax burdens, responding to issues with the IRS, or tax strategies for business dealings.

Getting a letter or notice from the IRS, state or local taxing authorities can be an intimidating and even daunting event, but with an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer, you will be prepared to face the challenges from the IRS and other government agencies. Many clients are unaware that they can challenge the claims of these agencies and negotiate a settlement other than what they are initially offered. Echols & Associates, L.L.C. will represent you in any litigation or negotiations with these agencies, ensuring that your best interests are protected as you work towards a fair resolution.

Echols & Associates, L.L.C. also provides legal services for businesses as they address various tax-related issues. Businesses encounter taxes in many forms, including income taxes, payroll taxes, and even special rules that apply to franchising or selling your business. We can help you navigate these often confusing areas of the law to ensure that you are avoiding those taxes that are unnecessary while still fulfilling your legal obligations at the local, state, and federal levels.

If you need assistance regarding federal, state or local tax law in Louisiana, contact Echols & Associates, L.L.C. today. We help individuals and businesses solve both immediate issues and plan for the future.Issues related to succession and probate can be emotionally charged and difficult to understand without a trusted lawyer’s advice. These areas of law deal with the distribution of assets and settling of estates after someone passes away, and in most cases the parties involved are dealing with grief and mourning as they try to navigate these complex legal issues.

At Echols & Associates, L.L.C., we are committed to helping clients in all stages of this process, whether they are planning their Will, administering the estate of a loved one, or challenging the way an estate has been handled.For clients who are concerned about protecting their assets and ensuring succession to certain heirs, working with a lawyer to plan their estate can bring a great deal of assurance and confidence. When you create a Will with a lawyer, you can feel more confident that it addresses all the relevant issues and will stand up better to any questions or challenges after the fact. As a firm that works to build lifelong relationships with our clients, we can help you draft a Will today and adjust your estate plan throughout your lifetime to address changes that occur.

When someone passes away, their estate is said to be either testate, which means they have left a Will, or intestate, which means there is no Will. In either of these cases, the estate goes into probate, a process through which the assets are distributed and debts settled. This process is often simpler and easier when there is a Will, but there can still be questions and challenges if the Will is not comprehensive.
