Providing prompt service in the age of COVID-19

COVID-19 Announcement
COVID-19 has changed so much about our lives – from the way my office does business to the way our families get together. Rest assured, my office stands ready to provide personal service and prompt attention to your needs. Here are a few more details on how I’m doing just that.

Just a call (or e-mail) away

During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, my office has continued to be fully operational. I’m glad to accept phone calls and video chats to serve you, your family or your patients when they need assistance.

Please call 504-456-8683 or e-mail to get the conversation going.

Time-sensitive items & documents

For those needing to complete time-sensitive documents, such as a Power of Attorney or a Last Will and Testament, these Authentic Acts still require signatures in the presence of a Notary Public.

While Gov. John Bel Edwards’ proclamation #37 allows for e-signing of some legal documents, it does not cover Notarial Acts such as the aforementioned, as well as Acts of Donation. In addition, the Louisiana Civil Code requires the physical presence of a Notary Public and witnesses to be valid.

I am prepared to meet in person, as needed, to assist with signing these documents, especially when they are urgently needed.

Protective measures will include:

  • Wearing masks
  • Wearing gloves
  • Observing social distancing when appropriate

Family first, safety first

Please stay safe, and do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you during these challenging times. I am committed to remaining available and accessible to you.

Know that I am also interested in assisting those with business interruption claims, and am open to any questions or concerns you may have regarding insurance coverage which may be available to you and your business.

In addition, I’ve gathered some helpful local links from parish governments. See below.

And that extended to his instinct to honor and care for his mom.
