Our Atlanta estate planning attorneys are helpful during the estate planning process and afterward through the process of probate court. They understand the state and federal laws that will impact your estate.

The Atlanta Estate Law firm is composed of experienced and licensed law professionals with a thorough understanding of the state and federal laws that affect how your estate will be inventoried, valued, dispersed, and taxed after your death. In addition to educating you about the probate process, we can assist you with the following tasks:

    • Creating a will
    • Designating your beneficiaries
    • Establishing a durable power of attorney and medical durable power of attorney
    • Finding ways to reduce and avoid estate tax when possible
    • Finding ways to avoid the probate court process
    • Setting up any trusts you might need to protect your assets, both for your own benefit during your lifetime in the event of incapacity, and for the benefit of your beneficiaries after your death

    Some of the primary benefits of working with Atlanta Estate Law include:

    • Creating an individualized plan based on your specific needs and offering you the most valuable legal advice for your situation
    • Working with an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable about current estate planning laws in your state, ensuring that the decisions you make will be made in accordance with the law and are legally enforceable
    • Access to a specialist who can serve as a resource for questions, concerns, changes, and updates to your will and trust

    Atlanta Estate Law can also be called upon to guide anyone with power of attorney over a recently deceased person’s estate through the process of probate court. In fact, a good estate planning attorney may be able to help you avoid probate court altogether, but that largely depends on the type of assets in the deceased’s estate and how they are legally allowed to be transferred.



    In the event that a beneficiary (or even an individual not designated as a beneficiary) announces that he or she plans to contest the will and sue the estate of a deceased family member or loved one that you also stand to benefit from, it might be in your best interest to consult an estate planning attorney immediately. Such lawsuits can quickly drain the estate’s funds and leave all beneficiaries a little worse for the wear.
