What We Can Do For You
Expert Estate Planners
Leaving a legacy behind is something we all want to accomplish. How will those we care for and love remember us? We can’t help answer all the questions you have about what comes after for your family, but we can help you be prepared. We handle wills and trusts to make your estate planning suitable to your personal situation and provide peace of mind to you.
Ensuring that your estate is thoughtfully and carefully planned out and then executed is where we at Thompson Law Group can assist you. The complexity surrounding the moments when the estate is read and executed is incredibly sensitive, our service and expertise help make it just a bit easier with clear and thought-out planning.
In Georgia, when someone passes away without a last will and testament, the Georgia Probate Court will determine who inherits all assets in the estate. The factors that determine the outcome include whether or not there is a surviving spouse, parents, or other relatives, and can take months if not years for a resolution. We help our clients and loved ones avoid such an outcome with thoughtful and strategic planning.
The Importance of a Living Will & Health Care Proxy
A living will and health care proxy can be helpful to your family in the event that you are in need of medical treatment but are no longer able to make decisions for yourself anymore. A living will is a legal document that specifies how far medical professionals are allowed to go in the case of a life-threatening condition. It can also include information on your wishes for organ donation and pain management.
A health care proxy is a legal document that gives a person the ability to make medical decisions based on your wants should you be unable to do so. Health care proxies are also known as “health care surrogates,” “durable power of attorney,” and “durable medical power of attorney.” A health care proxy is important to pair with a living will as not all medical situations can be accounted for in a living will.
