Estate Planning & Probate


Establishing a trust fund for your children or grandchildren now can avoid probate fees later, but changes to the Estate Tax laws may have changed perspectives on such planning.

You plan vacations months in advance. You save for your children’s college education. You invest money for retirement. Why not prepare your finances and other assets for distribution upon your death?

For almost 50 years, I have helped clients throughout the Atlanta and St. Simmons Island metro regions, prepare for the future by drafting simple and complex wills, establishing trusts and creating powers of attorney. Contact my office to schedule a free consultation and learn more about how I can help you.

Estate planning is important for many reasons. It gives you the peace of mind that your family is taken care of after your death. It allows your family to remember the happy times of your life, rather than worry about distributing assets. It also allows you to choose what happens to your assets. I handle a variety of estate planning and administration issues, including:

  • Trusts
  • Wills
  • Living wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Estate administration
  • Probate

Healthcare Plans

You may be a healthy individual, but one day a serious illness could leave you unable to make health decision on your own. I will help you plan for this day by discussing your options using a statutory health care directive. The Directive assists you to decide what medical care you should receive in case of serious illness or injury. They let your family and doctors know your wishes when you cannot express them yourself.

Are you satisfied with your plans for the future? If not, contact my office in Atlanta, Georgia, to schedule a free consultation. Learn how I can help ease your worries and ensure your family is financially secure both now and after your death.

Estate and Trust Disputes

A parent, sibling, relative or other may have gone to great length and expense to establish a well-crafted Estate Plan that benefits you or your descendants. All too frequently, things can go awry due to changes in the law, a failure of a trusted fiduciary to understand the law, family dynamics and circumstances or the inept, negligent or intentional interference by a personal representative or trustee or other heir. If you know, or apprehend, that a benefit or inheritance intended for you has been denied or subject to abuse or interference, I can review the circumstances and advise you of your options for redress or correction of mistakes or wrongdoing.  Contact my office to schedule a free consultation and learn more about how I can help you.
