I am an Experienced, Compassionate Lawyer in the Areas of
Probate Administration and Litigation
My name is Charles M. Hall, and I have more than 40 years of experience helping clients through the probate process in Georgia. As an experienced probate attorney, I can answer your questions and guide you through the process of administrating an estate, with or without a will.
The probate process in Georgia is not as difficult as it is in some other states. Whether your loved one passed with or without a will, you will need to go to probate court. However, if the will was well drafted, you will not need to continually seek court approval and appear before a judge. It is important to have an attorney guide you through this process, regardless of how simple it may seem. I can help you notify potential beneficiaries, file and pay estate taxes, distribute estate assets and close out the estate.
During the probate process, you or a beneficiary may disagree with the way an estate is handled or contest the validity of the will. If a dispute does arise, I can represent you and help protect your interests in negotiations and in probate litigation. I represent trustees, executors and representatives handling estates. I also assist beneficiaries in estate litigation.
There is a very short time frame in which to contest a will. Also, once you have consented to the will, you will no longer be able to contest the will's validity. If you suspect the will is invalid, fraudulent or otherwise incorrect, it is important to speak with an experienced probate attorney as quickly as possible about your options.
Contact Me today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:
- Probate and Estate Administration
- Probate and Estate Litigation
- Guardianship Counsel
- Conservatorship Counsel
- Trust and Estate Planning
You should seek advice from an attorney as soon as possible if you are a guardian or conservator. It may save you time and stress in the future. I can answer your questions about recordkeeping, help you with recordkeeping that will satisfy the probate court, and assist you with filing reports to the probate court to prevent future problems.
