Erik John Broel

About me

We believe that there is a better way for families to go through the probate process in Georgia, and our mission is to continually make the process simpler for our clients. We know that many people just want to make sure that their loved one's wishes are carried out, and we focus on helping our client achieve that as quickly and simply as possible.

Our firm focuses on guiding families through probate in Georgia, and making sure that they are not taken advantage of along the way. We reduce claims from creditors and make sure the family receives as much as possible from the estate. We also make sure that the assets are sold for the highest value possible, and not squandered.

We offer a completely turn-key probate estate administration service for families that live out of state so that they do not have to worry about the probate process in Georgia - we take care of it all for them. From filing the right document in probate court to protecting the estate from creditors and selling the home and other property, we make sure that probate is done right. And we offer these services on a fixed fee basis - no hourly rates or meters. It's simply a better way to settle an estate.

When there is a dispute in the family, we fight for our clients to make sure that they are protected and that the deceased's wished are carried out.
