    Explaining legal documents like Wills and Trusts to my clients so that they actually understand the documents. I speak plain English, not legalese.

    Advising trustees on how to administer trusts properly and efficiently. I also help beneficiaries when trusts are not being administered properly.

Death and disability are tough subjects, but that doesn’t mean it has to be tough on you and your family. Specializing in trust, probate, and guardianship cases, we offer personal, efficient service for fair, flat fees. Give us your troubles, and let us give you peace of mind.

Mandy Moyer helps families in Cumming, Canton, Alpharetta, Milton, Lawrenceville and across north Georgia deal with the unexpected realities that follow the death or disability of a loved one. Experiencing death or disability is hard, but the legal processes don’t have to be. You have questions; we have answers.

Since Mandy began practicing, she has devoted 100% of her practice to appearing in probate courts across Georgia and helping families plan for, and deal with, the tough realities of life. She understands that families need support and guidance to resolve the legal issues surrounding death and disability so that they can get back to living their lives.

The legal process can seem confusing, and it can be very intimidating to have to go to court to get the authority you need to handle the finances and decisions of a family member. But you don’t have to do it alone.

Using her experience and expertise, Mandy can guide your family through the legal process, helping you to understand the “legalese” you encounter along the way.

If your loved one has died:

Whether you need help initiating the probate process, handling a trust or estate administration, or closing an estate or trust when everything has been resolved, Mandy’s experience and commitment to personal service can make the process easier, quicker, and less stressful.

If your loved one needs help managing their affairs:

If you are the parent of a special needs child, and you need to get legal authority to handle their medical and financial affairs, Mandy will help you navigate that process with ease.

If you are a child or grandchild whose own parent or grandparent needs help managing their affairs due to Alzheimer’s or other dementia diseases, Mandy will guide you through the legal process while preserving your loved one’s dignity and autonomy.

Does Mandy handle contested cases?

Mandy enjoys advocacy in all forms, including handling contested and litigated cases where there’s a disagreement about who should inherit, or who should care for an elderly or disabled loved one.

In short, Mandy can help when everyone’s in agreement, or when they aren’t.

How experienced is Mandy in cases involving trusts, probate, and/or guardianships?

In a word: very.

In addition to handling many trust, estate and guardianship cases from start to finish in private practice, Mandy worked as the staff attorney and Chief Deputy Clerk to the Honorable Judge Lynwood Jordan of the Forsyth County Probate Court for several years.

In that role, she learned the intricacies of the probate and guardianship processes from the Court’s perspective. She applies the knowledge and expertise she gained from that experience to both litigated and routine cases occurring in Georgia’s probate courts.

Further, Mandy frequently speaks, writes, and teaches on topics relevant to these areas of law, and is recognized among her peers as a leader in the practice area.

What makes Mandy different than other lawyers?

Mandy cares about her clients, and is committed to not only achieving their goals, but making sure that they understand the process along the way. She prides herself and her team on being dedicated to client service, and committed to providing quality legal services for fair fees.

Impressed With Georgia Probate Layers’ Mandy Moyer
Worked with Cynthia Propst, a probate attorney working with Mandy Moyer’s firm. She listened, spoke in terms I could understand, and was thorough in sharing her thoughts about my legal issues. I would certainly work with her again. Mandy Moyer met me upon arrival and before I left made certain I had no unanswered questions. Both individuals were pleasant, caring and sharp attorneys. I highly recommend both attorneys and Georgia Probate Lawyers.

Guardianship & Conservatorship
Mandy helped my sister and I navigate through the process to become emergency co-guardians and co-conservators for my father and we now have permanent guardianship in place. Although we would not have wished for these circumstances, Mandy guided us through every step of the process with poise and efficiency. She is very knowledgeable, understanding and empathetic to our family's situation. I trust that she has our best interests at heart and highly recommend her for any case involving adult guardianship and/or conservatorship.

Expedited Professionalism at it's best !
I did an internet search to find a law firm to handle a property closing. I talked to several firms that specialized in this type of real-estate law. When I spoke with Ms. Moyer it became clear that I was informed and directed better than any other lawyer I had spoken with. Her detailed explanations and the depth of her knowledge let me realize that I need not look further. I hired her and I am here to tell anyone looking for an attorney that I am so proud of the Expedited, Professional service that she provided with expertise! Everything was filed and the detail was exemplary! I would highly recommend using this firm and Ms. Moyer. When I need to do this kind of law in the future I will be back. You definitely earned my trust and business. Thanks again and God Bless You & Yours!

Unresponsive and bad ethics
Worst lawyer I’ve ever hired. Had to send demand letters to even get my retainer back after they couldn’t file anything in court after months. Hired another lawyer and got things done in one day what they couldn’t do in months!!!
