In Georgia, a will is a legal document in which you set forth the manner in which you desire your estate to be distributed upon your death. For example, you can identify your beneficiaries and state what items of your estate you would like each beneficiary to receive. If you die without a will in Georgia, the Georgia laws of intestate (to die without leaving a will) will control the manner in which your property will be distributed.
Our estate attorneys handle all legal matters pertaining to wills and probate, including the following:
- Drafting wills
- Will revisions

- Power of Attorney
It is important that your will is carefully drafted and all formalities are properly carried out in the signing of the will. Our wills and probate attorneys are experienced in preparing wills that provide for the distribution of your estate according to your wishes, while minimizing the likelihood of your will being successfully challenged.
