Georgia Estate Litigation Attorneys
One of the most important services that one can perform to honor a deceased family member or friend is to ensure that his or her final wishes are respected. If there is a will in place, most of these matters will be detailed in the words of the testator (the person who made the will). However, there are times when the will isn’t clear, the executer misinterprets the intent, or there is a belief that the testator may have been unduly influenced or coerced prior to his or her death. In cases like these, it’s often necessary to settle the matter in the Georgia courts.
