Myrna E. Arroyo, Attorney

I graduated from Tulane University with an MBA/JD in May of 1995. After practicing law at several large law firms, I decided to go out on my own and start a law firm focused on real estate, estate planning, and successions.

I was drawn to this area because of my personal experience with a succession gone wrong. My grandfather’s death, when I was age 10, left a mess for my mother and her siblings that took nearly 30 years to settle and tore our family apart. After seeing the chaos that lack of planning can cause, I’ve made it my mission to make sure this doesn’t happen to you.

As head of our estate planning team, I can help Louisiana residents with wills, estate planning, trusts, long-term care planning, asset protection, and successions. Our team also includes an experienced litigation attorney who handles contested probate and succession cases.
