Probate

Probate is the legal process of resolving an estate. Probate actions involve administering the assets of someone who has died, or has become incapacitated. Probate ends when all claims against an estate have been resolved, and the estate holder's assets are distributed to the legal heirs and beneficiaries.

The Kent Law Firm in Atlanta, Georgia, assists clients in Metro Atlanta, including, but not limited to Fulton, Dekalb, Gwinnett, Douglas, and Cobb counties, in simplifying the complexities of their Georgia probate actions. Our experienced father and son legal team has more than 40 years of combined experience in helping Georgia families to take control of their personal and financial futures.

Our lawyers advise and represent clients in drafting wills and trusts, and to create estate plans that specify how their estates will be administered and that are designed to prevent potential probate disputes. We also represent estate holders, estate beneficiaries, estate executors, and individuals invested with powers of attorney, ensuring that they are fulfilling their duties to the letter of the law. Finally, we represent beneficiaries and heirs — such as children of estate holders — so their interests and rights are protected in the probate process.

Estate Administration Lawyer Representing Metro Atlanta, including, but not limited to Fulton, Dekalb, Gwinnett, Douglas, and Cobb counties

Our lawyers advise and represent clients in probate matters involving:

  • Will matters, including ensuring that a will is drafted and executed properly and fully
  • Intestate administration, including administering a person's estate if he or she dies without a valid will
  • Powers of attorney, including living wills, advance directives and health care proxies
  • Estate litigation, involving will contests, trust disputes, estate fraud allegations and other probate disputes

Tough Negotiation And Litigation When Needed

We prefer to help our clients prevent estate conflicts through planning, when possible. But in contentious circumstances — such as when an estate holder dies without establishing a will, when there are some questions about the validity of a will or other planning document, or when there are significant unpaid debts against an estate — a lawyer is often required to help resolve the matter.

Our experienced Atlanta probate lawyers are tough negotiators and litigators who will strongly represent you in negotiations and in court. We can advise and represent you, whether you are a beneficiary, administrator, executor, creditor or another party with an interest in an estate.
