Review Peatsa Wallace

About Me

Ms. Wallace has more than 32 years experience practicing law in the primary areas of estate planning, business and tax law.  Her trusts and estates practice encompasses simple wills, powers of attorney, advanced directives for health care, domestic partnership agreements, a full range of complex, tax-motivated estate planning, and all aspects of probate and estate administration. Ms. Wallace’s business practice includes corporate, partnership and LLC formations, contract preparation, buy-sell agreements and succession planning.  In addition, she advises and assists clients with forming tax-exempt, non-profit organizations.  Throughout her legal career, Ms. Wallace has created, developed, and begun several of her own small businesses, including Pencil, Pen and Pad Company, a family-owned real estate business, Camelot Home Investors, a residential rental business, and The Chore Store, a home improvement referral service business.


 


Ms. Wallace is a proven leader, manager and business developer. Her listening and counseling abilities allow her to form solid client relationships in both her work and in her community service. As a transactional attorney, she excels at verbal and written communications as well as being detailed oriented.  In her personal life, Ms. Wallace’s compassion and concern led her to organize a team of caregivers for a friend suffering from cancer.    


   


Peatsa C. Wallace currently is a sole practitioner in Tucker, Georgia and is considered a transactional attorney.  She has owned her own law firm, whether as a sole practitioner or partner, since 1982. She works extensively with individuals and families to help educate them on their need for estate and tax planning and end-of-life planning. Ms. Wallace helps business clients determine which type of entity is best for their personal and business goals and the resulting tax consequences of choosing particular business entities. She has extensive experience preparing all types of business contracts. She also works with school booster organizations and social organizations to form non-profit entities, which become tax-exempt. She provides pro bono services to low-income families.
