Estate Planning

Atlanta Area Estate Planning Attorney

No one likes to think about dying, but it will happen to us all. In order to be sure that your family, loved ones and assets are protected and in order to ensure that your wishes are honored after your death, you should create a Last Will & Testament. In addition, many individuals want loved ones to know their wishes with regard to life saving procedures, organ donation, disposition of remains, etc.

Estate Planning has never been more crucial. As baby boomers continue to get older more money will transition within our country than ever within its history. Unintended consequences abound with the lack of planning and can be prevented with it, and this is but one of the many benefits of estate planning.

We draft Wills, Trusts, and the appropriate ancillary documents for our clients and in so doing place particular emphasis on the Estate Plan being properly funded and titled so as to make it operative, to make it do what is intended.

Additionally, as conflicts sometimes arise in this field of law, we are well prepared to represent our clients in litigation of matters relating to Trusts and Estates. Common areas of representation include Will disputes/contests, actions against a Trustee, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, abuse of discretion relating to a Power of Attorney and other acts of undue influence or wrongdoing.

As one of the premier Family Law Firms in Georgia rarely does our firm have a divorce client who is not in need of a new Estate Plan. It is one of the most important and immediate things that he or she should do and it is a focal point within our firm; one more way that the Law Office of Gina Smalley is more comprehensive and holistic in the legal services provided to its clients.
