Choosing the right executor for your will

It's tough to think about the end of your life and since it's an uncomfortable topic, most people avoid talking about it. A majority of Americans don't have a will or estate plan in place and haven't legally planned for the inevitable. However, if you have a spouse, children or grandchildren, creating an estate plan with a will is an important way to care for their future needs.

Rounding out your advisory team with proven legal counsel

There are likely some business-linked individuals in Georgia and elsewhere who proclaim top-to-bottom acumen concerning every aspect of a commercial enterprise. And it's just as likely that few - if any - of those people remain at the helm or near the top of their professions for long.

Estate executors are due a fee

Settling an estate is a major undertaking. Regardless of whether the executor is working with a modest holding or a large-scale estate, complete with trusts, stocks and bonds, the task will no doubt capitalize their time and effort for days or even weeks. Fortunately for anyone acting as an executor in Georgia, they are most likely due an executor's fee.

The specialized topic of variances in the zoning universe

Entrepreneurs and established business owners are always on the lookout for attractive business opportunities across the Atlanta metro area. Understandably, they sometimes envision a property use in a given location that is not tightly aligned with the types of businesses being run in the surrounding area.

Could your pet be in danger during estate administration?

Does your estate planning account for your furry, scaly or feathered loved ones? If you are severely injured or die unexpectedly, have you decided what you would like to happen to your pets? Without a clear plan in place, your pets could end up in the wrong hands.

Planning your business succession

After starting a company, the first thing on your mind might not be the day you leave it and retire. However, business succession planning should not be put off for long. Having a business succession plan not only gives your company stability but can help you feel secure that your legacy will be carried on after you leave.
