The Law Office of Stephen M. Scriber, LLC is an Estate Planning and Probate law firm based in Atlanta that serves the state of Georgia. We handle matters relating to Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning, Probate, Administration, Year’s Support, Will Contests, Trust and Estate litigation, and Asset Protection

Estate Planning and Asset Protection

Our Atlanta estate planning practice handles services ranging from simple Wills to complex estate planning, business and financial planning, and trust formation and management.

We employ a comprehensive approach to estate planning and asset protection that provides our clients with more than a Will, Trust, or other legal documents. We work to create plans and strategies that engage the client directly in the process and create significant value especially by steering them through potential tax issues and familial conflicts.

We treat our clients with respect and honesty, present them with effective plans, and make sure our clients understand their plans before leaving our office.

Though we work with all families, our firm is skilled in handling the needs of clients with specific, complex estate planning and asset protection needs, including:

  • Members of the LGBT community: We provide domestic partnership agreements and other unique documents that secure the rights of LGBT couples that are considered to be unmarried under Georgia law. We can guide you through the potential pitfalls of Georgia estate planning, protecting the interests of your significant other and any children you may have.
  • Current and former government employees: We provide estate plans that address both military and civilian retirement plans, veterans’ benefits, disability benefits, and other issues that face this unique client.
  • Real estate investors: We help clients deal with the unique asset protection, tax, and title issues surrounding the ownership of numerous commercial and/or residential properties, minimizing your exposure to legal liability and aligning your investments to your larger estate plan.
  • Both start-up and high-growth business owners: We help clients navigate the legal issues surrounding the launch of a startup and help plan for the unique estate planning, succession, asset protection, and tax issues involved in the launch and operation of a high-growth business.

Regardless of who you are, we can help you assemble estate plan that accomplishes your goals with a minimum of time and stress.

Probate, Administration, and Year’s Support

Our Atlanta probate, administration, and year’s support practice can prepare, file, and handle legal proceedings dealing with setting up and closing an estate.

The loss of a loved one is one of the hardest things that can happen in one’s life. However, dealing the estate and legal issues shouldn’t be one of them. We pride ourselves on serving the individual needs of each client as they go through the Georgia Probate process, if the loved one left behind a Will, or through the Administration process, if they did not leave a Will. We will also help determine whether you qualify to file a Year’s Support Petition to bypass the probate process and, if so, whether that helps your interests.

Trusts and Estates Litigation

The Law Office of Stephen M. Scriber, LLC represents the interests of executors, beneficiaries, heirs, and other interested parties in Georgia estate and trust litigation. Our Atlanta attorneys practice statewide and can assist out-of-state clients with probate and estate administration matters in Georgia, including real estate title clearance. We handle all types of estate-related litigation, including will contests, trust management disputes, estate tax litigation, and trust litigation.

We’re Tech Savvy

We embrace technological innovations in the law, allowing clients to interact with the attorney on various platforms, including text messaging and Skype. Further, clients can view their documents online through our secure platform. We are constantly seeking ways to improve the client experience using technology and other strategies.
