Roswell Wills Lawyer

Georgia Estate Planning Attorney

Is it time to put a will in place to ensure the orderly distribution of your assets in the event of your death? Not only can a will help you make certain your wishes are followed, but it can also alleviate or minimize the stress on your loved ones when they are grieving your loss. An experienced lawyer can help you create a simple and effective document that clearly conveys your wishes.

At the office of attorney Patrick J. Gibbs, I have more than 35 years of practice experience. For more than 20 years, I have focused mainly on estate planning and probate matters, including the preparation and execution of wills. In my years in practice, I have been involved in the preparation of more than 1,500 estate plans. I take a comprehensive approach, looking at probate as well as non-probate assets such as life insurance policies or retirement plans. I will work to integrate your planning to accomplish your overall objectives. My emphasis is always on solutions that are cost-effective.

Helping You Draft a Will

I will handle all matters related to the preparation and execution of a last will and testament, which you can use to govern the distribution of your property and identify potential guardians for any minor children. I will take the time to obtain the necessary details as to your financial situation. I will help you understand the different strategies you can employ in a will, including:

  • Specific bequests: You identify who will receive specific items of property or allocations of money.
  • Residuary bequests: All assets are pooled together and divided according on a percentage basis.
  • Testamentary trusts: You name a trustee to protect the estate passing to your children if no parent is living.

My goal when preparing your will is to clearly state your objectives so that there is no confusion among your beneficiaries. I work with you to prepare your estate so it can pass efficiently through the probate process. Your executor will be able to administer it with the least amount of time and expense under the circumstances.
