We Have Your Family’s Needs in Mind

Our lawyers have worked with many families in Cumming and throughout Alpharetta and North Georgia on their estate planning issues. We help people with estate planning and probate issues such as:

Wills

The cornerstone of an estate planning strategy is your will, which describes how your estate is to be handled after your death. It is crucial that your will is valid and leaves no doubt as to the disposition of your estate. Wills that are ambiguous, poorly prepared, or not properly documented can lead to uncertainty and great expense for your beneficiaries.

Trusts

Our firm helps clients establish trusts, which can be used to provide specific instructions and create income for those whom you specify. You are also able to choose a trustee to handle the process.

Guardianships

In cases of illness, disability, or some other drastic condition that leaves an adult unable to make sound decisions, it may be necessary to seek guardianship to manage that person’s affairs. This is a legal process that our attorneys can assist you with.

Estate Planning

There are several methods to help avoid lengthy probate battles and leave no doubt as to your wishes, including the aforementioned trusts. Our attorneys can develop a comprehensive plan on your behalf.
