I hope this message finds you well. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of practice experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today. I think I can help you quicker by providing you with a document than referring you to a legal aid service.

I am going to cut and paste a Louisiana Power of Attorney Template below. You can then copy and paste it into your own document (like a word document). You can enter the appropriate information in the blanks.

Let me know if you have any questions. Please also rate my answer positively (three or more stars) as well.
