Providing personal service and peace of mind in trust, estate, elder law, and guardianship cases.
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.
