Roswell Estate Planning Attorney
If you have concerns about estate matters, whether you need to put a plan in place to govern the distribution of your property or you have been appointed as executor or administrator of the estate of a loved one, you want an experienced lawyer to guide you through the process, someone who has successfully helped others in circumstances just like yours.
At the law office of Patrick J. Gibbs, P.C., Attorney at Law, I offer more than 35 years of practice experience to people in and around Roswell. For the last 20 years, I have dedicated my practice largely to issues related to estate planning and probate matters.
I take a comprehensive approach, looking at all aspects of your estate plan, including non-probate transfers such as life insurance or retirement plans. I have personally handled more than 1,500 estate plans. I will use my experience, skill, knowledge and resources to identify and implement solutions that cost effectively meet your specific needs.
An Overview of My Estate Planning Practice
I concentrate my practice mainly on issues related to:
- Estate planning — I will help you evaluate the different strategies available to help you plan for the orderly distribution of your assets, including the use of wills or the implementation of a trust, including a special needs trust. I can also work with you to put an advance medical directive (living will) in place to identify how medical decisions will be made in the event you cannot manage your own affairs.
- Probate — If you are an executor or administrator, I can assist you with the steps necessary to settle the estate of a loved one through the probate court. I can help protect your interests if your loved one has died without a will.
- Elder law concerns — I will help you integrate asset protection strategies into your overall estate plan so that your property is protected if you need long-term nursing home, assisted living or other care.
- Small businesses — My law practice also includes providing business formation guidance and succession planning as part of overall estate planning for small business owners.
