Roswell & Atlanta Probate Attorney
When you have questions or concerns about estate or probate matters, you want answers from an experienced lawyer. Estate planning and probate can be complex and confusing, even for licensed attorneys. You want a lawyer who knows the law and the process, someone who has protected the rights of others in cases like yours.
At the office of Patrick J. Gibbs, P.C., Attorney at Law, I have been in practice for more than 35 years. I take a comprehensive approach to estate planning and probate, looking carefully at all your assets, including non-probate property such as insurance and retirement plans. I will work carefully to integrate your planning efforts so that you get the most cost-effective results that meet your specific goals.
For the last 20 years, I have focused my practice mainly on estate planning and probate matters. I will help you understand the different strategies for ensuring the orderly distribution of your assets, as well as the protection of minor children. I will draft all the documents you need to execute to put your estate plan in place, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney and advance medical directives. I can also protect your rights if your loved one died without a will.
I represent executors and administrators who seek to comply with the requirements of the probate court and settle the estate of a loved one. I also assist people who want to implement asset protection or elder law strategies to minimize the loss of property to pay for the costs of nursing home or similar care.

To learn more about the law of wills, trusts and estates, and the estate planning process be sure to check out some of the articles on my Articles page. They are based on the columns I wrote during the 12 years I was a columnist for The North Georgia Star, a monthly newspaper distributed in counties north of Atlanta.
