I begin by offering you the following:

If someone close to you has passed away, you may find yourself wondering if you need a probate lawyer. During this stressful and highly emotional time, it may be difficult to spend time choosing the right attorney for your case, but the extra time and effort you put into find the right lawyer can make all the difference when settling matters of probate.

Moreover, It is my general thought that unless you have significant legal training in the area of Georgia wills, trusts, and estates, you should start from day one with a a Georgia probate lawyer on retainer.

In general, there are two types of Georgia probate lawyers:

Georgia Transactional/Administration Lawyers-attorneys who mainly handle the administrative side of probate matters
• Georgia Probate litigators-attorneys who represent clients who are involved in probate or estate disputes
One of the first steps towards choosing the right Atlanta probate lawyer is to decide which type of Atlanta, Georgia probate attorney best suits your needs. Are you involved in a Georgia probate dispute or trust litigation matter? Alternatively, do you simply need an attorney to help you and your family with the distribution and administration of the estate?

When choosing the right Atlanta probate attorney, here are a few questions you should ask:

• Does the Atlanta probate attorney specialize in your type of probate situation?

• Are there good reviews supporting the Georgia probate law firm or Georgia probate lawyer you choose? Did your attorney come recommended by anyone you know?

• Did you contact the Georgia State Bar Association to determine if the lawyer is in good standing?

• Is the Atlanta probate lawyer specialized in Georgia probate law?

• How much experience does this lawyer have in litigation or probate administration?
