Our Atlanta Law Firm's Scope of Practice
Estate planning, probate, and elder law are complex areas that require careful attention and planning. Our law firm understands the importance of addressing each client's unique needs in these matters. We provide comprehensive estate planning services, such as the creation of trusts, wills, and even advance directives, which allow individuals to communicate their medical treatment preferences if they are unable to do so themselves. These documents include living wills, healthcare proxies, and durable powers of attorney for healthcare decisions, ensuring that our clients' wishes are respected and followed.
Additionally, we offer tailored asset protection strategies to help clients preserve their wealth for future generations. We can provide guidance on business succession planning, which ensures a smooth transition of family-owned businesses to the next generation, as well as advice on charitable giving, helping clients leave a meaningful legacy that aligns with their values.
Another crucial aspect of our practice is special needs planning, which involves creating personalized plans for individuals with disabilities. Our attorneys also work closely with families to navigate the probate process, ensuring the deceased's wishes are carried out as intended and the estate is administered effectively. By taking a client-centered approach, we strive to ensure all aspects of estate planning, probate, and elder law are addressed, providing our clients with peace of mind and a secure future for themselves and their loved ones.

An individual can write his own will in Georgia but must follow certain statutory rules laid out in order to ensure the will is deemed valid by a probate court.
People hire a probate attorney because the benefits of having an attorney outweigh the costs of time and effort. Mainly people hire a probate attorney to save time and energy, reduce their worries, and navigate the probate process with a professional. So no, you do not need a lawyer to probate a will, if it is worth the time and effort to do it yourself.
Executor is the person named in the last will and testament that's appointed by the probate court to administer the estate of the decedent according to the will.
In Georgia, there is a legal mandate for the holder of a will to submit it to the court for probate per O.C.G.A. § 53-5-5. If a will is not filed with the court, any heir or beneficiary can petition the court to direct the will holder to file the will with the proper court. Wills are meant to be public documents once the grantor has passed away. Sometimes if a will is not filed with the court, beneficiaries and heirs cannot take legal possession of assets specified in the Last Will and Testament.
