Wills & Trusts


Helping You Protect Your Legacy

You have worked hard to have your money reflect your priorities. Perhaps those priorities are providing for your family, supporting a charity or cause that you are passionate about, lifting someone out of financial uncertainty, or promoting the success of your business. After you are gone, you want your estate to continue reflecting your priorities.

At Cook & Tolley, LLP, we can help. Let us plan with you for a continuing legacy – one that speaks to what is most important to you. Because at certain points in life, there are really only two choices – either you decide your future, or someone else will decide it for you. We want to empower you to be the decision-maker when it comes to your estate.

Estate Planning Services

Everyone has an estate plan, but actions must be taken to give life to that plan. Without such action and planning, your estate will be distributed after death according to Georgia’s laws of intestacy, and those laws may be very different from what you want for your estate. There are several legal tools and avenues involved in estate planning, including wills, revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, durable powers of attorney, and health care documents. One or more of these legal tools and avenues can be employed to create and effectuate your estate plan and replace the terms of Georgia’s laws of intestacy. Our attorneys will ensure that important decisions get handled correctly and help you build an estate plan that fully explains your wishes.

We want to help make your plans reality. We will assist you in planning for the unexpected in order to preserve your legacy and ease the burden on your family.
