Are You From Out-of-State? You Need A Georgia Lawyer.

Last updated on April 23, 2024

If you live in another state but have a close family member who recently passed away in Georgia, Hodges Law Firm, LLC, can provide the legal services you need to protect your interests and provide you assistance from our state to yours. Our Cumming law firm has helped many like you to achieve your goals of a peaceful and complete resolution of these problems. Our estate and trust litigation counsel represent all types of affected claimants, including children, spouses and other claimants living outside and inside of Georgia who have a vested interest in or claims against an estate in Georgia. We represent clients, also living across the broad state of Georgia, in regard to estates in the metro Atlanta area or north.

Prepared To Go To Trial For You

Our firm doesn’t just represent will contests and trust disputes; we also regularly represent those nonresidents who are named as executors or administrators involved in the administration of estates in Georgia. These include the regular administration of estates and also wrongful death lawsuits. In fact, if there is no death, but a guardianship, conservatorship, personal injury or a sticky business transaction, we can provide the legal help you need. We can represent you even if your case has to involve litigation, which today seems all too common. We aren’t afraid of the courtroom.

Let’s Try To Minimize Your Long Trips To Georgia

Some estates, if you are appointed executor or trustee, might require one trip to the Georgia probate court to be sworn in. We anticipate this and try to ensure that this will be your only trip to Georgia, unless unusual circumstances appear and dictate another trip. We work hard to prevent any unnecessary trips to Georgia. If things work out, we may never even need to meet face-to-face. But, rest assured: We provide careful, competent services to help you close out the estate or trust as quickly and as easily as possible.

Not From Georgia? We Can Advise You.

If you do not live in Georgia, our law firm can advise you in several practice areas. Call 678-608-1746, toll-free at , or contact us online.
