If you are looking for legal experience and steadfast commitment to obtaining the best possible outcome, call Metairie attorney Debra Kesler.


Protecting What is Important to You

As a family law attorney, my lifework is helping Louisiana families like yours find solutions to their situation and concerns, and protect the things in life that affect them the deepest:

  • Who will get custody of the children?
  • Your prenup was signed twenty years ago. Is it enforceable?
  • Louisiana is a community property state – what assets can you keep according to the law?
  • You spouse has threatened to harm you – what can you do?
  • You want relocate outside of Louisiana with the children – what will the court say about that?
  • You just want the divorce to be over with, but your spouse is not willing to work with you.

These issues and more can play out in an emotionally charged climate. Divorce is the ending of an intimate relationship - sometimes before one spouse is ready to leave, sometimes mired in financial hardship, sometimes accompanied by infidelity - all creating a need for special handling and understanding from your divorce lawyer.


A Meeting with Family Law Attorney Debra Kesler Can Restore Your Confidence

Your first contact with me will be an initial consultation by appointment. At the consultation, I will listen closely to your situation and problems, and what you wish to accomplish. I will also have questions for you along the way, so it will truly be a conversation.

  • Depending on your goals, I will gather information about your case, your assets, your debts, and the needs of your children so that we can develop the most practical strategy.
  • I will help you to fully consider the options available, and explain the pros and cons of each possible course of action. You will understand both what is possible and likely under Louisiana law.
  • As your family law attorney, I will carefully clarify the costs and benefits of each course of action in light of the result you want.
  • Once you have decided on the right course to take, I will work with you to develop a price, making sure it fits your mission and provides the greatest benefit.
  • You may be simply thinking about getting a divorce, and you want information and legal advice about what to expect. I offer pre-divorce consultations to fully prepare you for what lies ahead.
