Wills – Trusts – Estate Planning
Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Estate Planning Attorneys
For gay and lesbian individuals and couples in Atlanta and throughout Georgia, proper estate planning is crucial and requires competent and experienced legal guidance. Proactive legal planning is the best way to ensure that your wishes are followed in the event of untimely death. Indeed, without proper estate planning (and regardless of a domestic partnership agreement), your assets would be distributed according to Georgia law, which favors biological relatives over your beneficiary of choice.
Our trusted attorneys will make sure that your wishes are followed precisely and your property is allocated according to your instructions.

Our Atlanta family law attorneys focus on all aspects of estate planning for Georgia’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals and couples.
Sample types of estate planning we assist with are:
- Wills: We draft Last Wills & Testaments with clients to ensure their wishes concerning dependents, funeral arrangements, and the distribution of certain types of property are legally established and protected.
- Trusts: Our clients often find that trusts are the best way to manage their estate. The primary advantages of trusts are that they avoid the probate process and minimize the cost of property distribution.
