Hello and welcome to my Avvo profile! My name is Shelley Elder and I have been practicing law for over 20 years. I am admitted in the state of Georgia and Virginia to practice law. I specialize in estate planning to include wills, trusts, probate, and guardianship. I am also an expert in Chapter 7 bankruptcy and real estate, as well as business formation. I specialize in LLCs, corporations, and business contracts. I am currently the registered agent of 70+ LLCs and corporations in Georgia and Virgina.
