Practice Areas

Food Law

Food law can be many things. For Green Pepper Legal, practicing food law is about ensuring those who need help can get it. Whether you are in the business of food production, distribution, or consumption, Green Pepper legal is in the business of supporting you.

    • Business Establishment & Closure

Limited Liability Corporations (LLC) – Green Pepper Legal works with businesses to facilitate their startup or dissolutions, draft contracts, and facilitate negotiations.

Non-Profits – Much of environmental and food law challenges are all about the rules. Whether they be set by the State Department of Health or Wildlife and Fisheries or Environmental Quality, fighting back means using Administrative Court. Green Pepper Legal is committed to vehemently representing your interests in and out of court.

Corporations – The air we breathe, water we drink, and ground we walk on should be safe. Whether inside or outside of your home is compromising your health, Green Pepper Legal is ready to work for you.

    • Permit & Filings

Converting food hustles into legitimate businesses can be a difficult and sometimes unwieldy process. Between city, state, and health department regulations, it is hard to know what to do and what information is correct. Green Pepper Legal works with food businesses to get the best result possible.

    • Land Use & Restrictions

Where your business exists is as important as the business itself. Zoning ordinances can at times be difficult to understand and even worse to maneuver. Green Pepper Legal is happy to work with you to ensure your business is in a commercially zoned area of town. And if it isn’t, we will gladly work with you to apply to have the zoning changed.

Farm Law

Farms, in large part, is where food comes from! Ensuring that farmers and farms are properly represented and protected is part of Green Pepper Legal’s mission. Whether you work in agriculture or want to, Green Pepper Legal wants to work with you to get and keep your farm afloat.

    • Black Farmer Challenges

Green Pepper Legal understands there are specific and more complicated challenges facing black farmers, fishermen, and oystermen. These challenges vary widely. We would like to help you address them so you can focus on the business of producing food.

    • Cannabis

Cannabis is a growing cash crop subject to ever changing laws and regulations. Through partnerships with other firms and agencies, Green Pepper Legal seeks to help burgeoning businesses expand and formerly incarcerated people find equitable opportunity.

    • Bankruptcy

Whether you have lost your job or your ability to earn is diminished, economic hardships are bad enough without the stresses of debt collectors demanding you give them what you don’t have. Green Pepper Legal will take the time to assess your situation, present your legal options, and work with you through the process. If you determine you want to file for bankruptcy, we will advise you on the best option for your situation.

    • Land Titles – coming soon!

Many Louisiana farmers are on heirs property. This condition that complicates ownership for too many farmers also adds risk and exposure. Clearing the title to ownership could make the land eligible for federal programs, incentives, and forgiveness in ways that are either currently limited or prohibited.

    • Heirship property

The old folk did their best to care for their family while they were on this earth. Unfortunately, too many passed on without a will and that meant their land passed from one relative to another. Everybody knew, or thought they did, who was supposed to get what, but that doesn’t help much when trying to apply for debt relief, federal assistance, or similar programs for a piece of land bearing a forebear’s name. Green Pepper Legal can research the property ownership and open successions that will transfer ownership to the living.

    • Wills

No matter how much or little you think you have to leave your family, a will is a must have! Wills communicate clearly what is important to you and make your final wishes known to your family. Death very stressful on the survivors. Green Pepper Legal can help you make it easier for your loved ones by capturing what what you want to happen when you are gone.

    • Successions

At Green Pepper Legal, we understand that where you live is more than a house – it’s your home. You want to be sure all you have worked to obtain gets into the right hands. We can help you write wills, powers of attorney, and advanced medical directives so that your desires are known and followed when you can’t speak for yourself.

    • We also recognize that businesses have need for succession planning as well. We can help you identify and memorialize a plan for the leadership of your organization – because it can only thrive with the right guidance.
