About Charles

Learn Charles’s areas of practice.

 I am a resident of Gwinnett County , GA. and am married with two adult children. My law practice is located at 538 Scenic Hwy., Lawrenceville, GA. where I have practiced for 18 years. My primary goal is to give effective and honest legal representation to my clients at a fair cost. Barbara Penland is my Paralegal and she has been with me for 4 years. She gives my clients superior service and they speak very highly of her. Most of my legal work is done in probate courts but I also represent clients in our other state courts. In addition to WILLS, TRUSTS, PROBATE, ESTATE PLANNING, CONSERVATORSHIPS, GUARDIANSHIPS, POWERS OF ATTORNEY, ADVANCE DIRECTIVES FOR HEALTH CARE, and ESTATE LITIGATION I handle UNCONTESTED ADOPTIONS & DIVORCES, FORMATION OF LLC's & CORPORATIONS, SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY(CAR WRECKS & FALL DOWN CASES) and WRONGFUL DEATH, and SPEEDING AND TRAFFIC COURT CASES.

Knowledgeably and kind
Mr. Tingle has handled our wills and advanced directives. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner and was able to provide guidance to make certain our wills addressed all of our concerns in the event we pass while our children are still young. I have recommended him to several friends and have never heard one complaint.

Smooth and Easy Process
We have used Mr. Tingle twice in the last 12 years to write our wills, etc. Both times he and his office staff made it a smooth and easy process. We trust his counsel and were very thankful for the easy to understand yet thorough explanations that he gave to us on each section of the documents both during the construction and on the day of execution. We have highly recommended his services to our friends and family.

Highly Recommended
We needed wills and related documents prepared. Mr. Tingle's office promptly prepared them and Mr. Tingle spent time explaining each document, its meaning and purpose, and answered our questions thoroughly. We needed to make some minor changes shortly after everything was prepared, and again, Mr. Tingle and his associates handled everything in an extremely professional and expedient manner.

Endorse Charles
Probate Attorney | Feb 21
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I heartily endorse this lawyer. I have had several cases with Charles and it is pleasure to work with him. He is a staunch advocate for his clients position but manages to remain a gentleman throughout the process. He is a worthy adversary but one with whom I enjoy dealing as he is forthright."
Estate planning Attorney | Jul 01
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have worked with Charles Tingle on a number of matters over the past few years and endorse him wholeheartedly due to his reputation, experience, ethics and ability to look at the big picture to ensure that all of the needs of his clients are met even outside his core areas of practice. Charles has referred several Social Security cases to our firm where he has determined that his clients or their family members would benefit by pursuing disability claims, and we have referred clients to him where we determine that our clients require specialized assistance with wills, estate planning, elder law or other issues beyond the scope of our disability law practice. The solid working relationship we have built with Charles over the past few years has been a force multiplier that has benefited our clients be enabling us to provide a comprehensive approach to their legal needs, and I would recommend Charles to anyone seeking assistance with estate planning legal assistance."
Probate Attorney | May 06
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I can highly recommend Charles Tingle as one of Atlanta's best probate attorneys. I have been involved in several cases with Charles and always find him to be a strong advocate for his clients, very concerned about the well-being of his clients and highly ethical in dealing with opposing counsel and the court."
