Estate Planning and Probate
One of the most enjoyable areas of my practice is helping individuals and families implement an estate plan and reach their objectives. I recognize that one size does not fit all and whether it is a blended family, family with a special needs child, or older adult, I treat each client on an individual basis to meet his/her respective needs.
We also assist families in the probate and administration of their loved one’s estate and have litigated many cases in the probate courts of metro Atlanta where necessary.
We regularly represent land owners when a governmental entity or utility seeks to acquire their property. Because we have also represented local governments in property acquisition, we are uniquely positioned and skilled to advocate for land owners to achieve the compensation they deserve and to protect their rights.

Gregory Jay's help brought me closure.
Did a great job with kindness and understanding of my situation with settlement surrounding inheritance, siblings and final acceptable results for everyone involved.

A great team and will certainly rely on them if ever I need legal guidance!!
