John Sirois, Houma Estate and Elder Law Attorney


John is an attorney whose practice primarily handles estate planning, successions, Medicaid and long-term care planning, and special needs planning.  Through his understanding of the complex tax laws involving retirement planning and estate planning as well as his knowledge of investments, wealth preservation, and Louisiana Law, John is one of the few Louisiana practitioners with the credentials, experience and ability to understand your entire financial planning “big picture”. 

John graduated from Nicholls State University with a bachelor's degree in business and a master's degree in business administration.  He received his law degree from Tulane School of Law and is admitted to the Louisiana Bar.  In addition, John received the Certified Financial Planner designation from the College for Financial Planning.

John applies his knowledge of investments, retirement distributions, estate taxation and financial planning to help his clients plan for a smooth, tax efficient transfer of their estate.  Customized plans are designed and implemented according to his clients' needs and concerns.

 John has spoken to various groups and teaches courses at Nicholls State University covering investments, retirement planning, TRSL, LASERS and DROP planning, IRA distributions, long term care/Medicaid planning, and estate planning.  In addition has appeared as a guest speaker at Money Watch Live and has taught continuing education courses for attorneys, financial planners, CPAs and insurance agents.   He is the author of The Louisiana Retirement and Estate Planning Handbook which covers various Louisiana specific planning issues, pitfalls to avoid, and clears many misconceptions Louisiana residents often have regarding retirement and estate planning.
