Melanson Law, A Professional Law Corporation provides tax law, estate planning and business law services to businesses and individuals in Louisiana. Clients benefit from the firm's extensive experience, responsive service and results-oriented approach.

I am Ben F. Melanson, an attorney who has been helping my clients resolve complex legal problems for 25 years. I have extensive experience in my practice areas and a comprehensive understanding of tax laws, tax minimization strategies and estate planning vehicles.

I have received the BV Distinguished* rating facilitated by Martindale-Hubbell. This rating attests to the high regard that other attorneys in Louisiana have for my legal ability and ethical standards.

Tax Planning Attorney — Tax Dispute Resolution

My law firm prepares tax returns, provides tax planning advice and represents clients facing tax audits. As an experienced Baton Rouge tax attorney, I have prepared thousands of individual and business tax returns and resolved numerous tax disputes for my clients. I am committed to reducing my clients' tax burdens to the greatest degree possible while enabling them to comply with the law.

Creative Estate Planning Solutions

My law firm provides a complete range of estate planning services for business owners and individuals in Louisiana. I can draft a will, create a trust, help you pass your business or farm to your children, and provide advice regarding other issues. When advising you, I will take time to understand your family, your financial situation, your values and your long-term goals. Then I will develop the customized estate instruments that can enable you to achieve those goals.

In addition to tax law and estate planning, I can provide advice and services regarding business formation, purchase and sale of businesses, contracts, oil, gas and timber rights, and other business law matters.

My Commitment To You

The practice of law is an intense and serious business, but many aspects of life are not so solemn. When you come to my office in Beauregard Town to discuss your legal matter, you will meet an attorney who enjoys life, is optimistic and seeks positive solutions to difficult problems. You can be candid when discussing your situation and in turn I will provide you with an honest appraisal of your legal options. You will have confidence knowing that an experienced and committed attorney is on your side, working hard to obtain the optimal solution for you.
