Worrall KNOWS the struggles you are facing as you raise children, balance the demands of your job, and take care of your aging parents, too! Steve helps parents of minor children plan for the unthinkable, from a parent’s perspective. Steve is an experienced wills, trusts and estate planning and elder law  attorney, probate lawyer and adoption attorney at Georgia Estate Plan: Worrall Law LLC, based in Marietta, Georgia, but he serves clients throughout the State. He concentrates his practice in all areas of estate planning including wills, trusts, probate, special needs planning and guardianship, and adoption.

Steve is focused on his desire to fully serve and help his clients make the best legal and financial decisions. He also helps his client families plan to protect their assets and their children in the event of their death or incapacity, and to transfer their whole wealth – their financial, intellectual, and spiritual assets – to their loved ones.

Steve is an Atlanta native and has lived in Cobb County all of his life. He graduated with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1983. He practiced in the Buckhead area of Atlanta from 1983 until 1995, when he opened his own practice in his hometown suburb in Marietta, near the Square. He moved his office to East Cobb in 2016. He is married and is a dad to three children. He is involved in his community in local business groups and local theater and arts organizations.

Responsive, Empathetic, Professional
My sister died unexpectedly and without a will. We live in Pennsylvania and definitely needed legal help. After reviewing lawyers with top ratings in Cobb County, I contacted three lawyers by email. Steve Worrall responded in 2 hours. One of the other lawyers contacted me days later, and the third not at all. The initial contact was not just a legal one, but also one saying how sorry for our loss in a genuine way. Steve was able to meet with us and offer help during the limited time we could spend in Georgia. Once in Pennsylvania, any questions we had were responded to by Steve or Karen in a speedy manner. Worrall Law is tip top in my book. They made this awful time one in which I felt legally and personally supported.

Can't recommend enough!
I can't say enough good things about Steve, Karen and Georgia Estate Plan.  They have helped my family to navigate a very challenging time of executing my father's estate after he passed away this year.  Steve has been there to answer all of my questions and guide me through all of the unknowns.  They also guided us through building an estate plan for our family, making the process clear and convenient.  Steve came highly recommended by a close friend, and I can see why!  We would recommend Georgia Estate Plan to any friends and family that need guidance in these sometimes challenging areas.

Very pleased we found Steve's law firm!
Having been involved last year in settling a relatives' estate with nothing more than a software generated, one-size-fits-all Will, we knew we wanted something more comprehensive than that for our Estate. Additionally, we needed a clear, objective comparison of Trusts vs Wills, and which would be the best fit for us. After attending some local attorneys' introductory/free-lunch seminars, we felt far more comfortable working with Steve Worrall at Georgia Estate Plan. Without a doubt we made the right choice. We could not have completed the complex process of generating an all-inclusive Estate Plan that addresses potential issues without Steve and Karen's guidance and expertise. Going forward, this will be our family's "go-to" law firm.

Highest recommendation
Steve is the greatest, very carrying and thorough. Along with Karen, he has a true family attitude and is devoted to making sure his client's needs are filled. Easy, plain English, great followup communication. Excellent.

Great attorney
Steve had the knowledge and compassion to guide me throughout the process of establishing a power of attorney, health care directive, and my will. I recommend him to anyone who has to face all these hard decisions due to terminal illness.

Thank you, Jody. We were honored to assist you in this difficult time.

A Model for All Lawyers
I was a little apprehensive about having to visit a lawyer for advice on my will; I never knew a lawyer I could say anything good about. I was pleasantly surprised when I met Steve. He’s actually a very nice person first and a great attorney second. Yes, niceness was most important to me. A good attorney with a rotten personality is still a rotten person. I’m very lucky to have found Steve. He met my needs in a very professional manner, he is an expert in estate law, and he was able to communicate to me in regular English, not legalese. Enough about Steve. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention his office staff. Both Lynn and Karen were very professional, knowledgeable, and, yes, nice. Karen went out of her way to provide something in short supply in many businesses these days—customer service. She always had something friendly to say and made sure I received what I needed. If you’re looking for a great estate attorney, you must visit with Steve. You’ll leave looking forward to working with him and feeling very good about your decision.

Everything an Attorney Should Be and More!
Steve recently represented my husband and I in a case which was quite overwhelming for us, and the outcome was even better than we had hoped. From the moment we met him for the consultation, the task of going to court felt less daunting. Steve goes above and beyond; he clearly advised us on the best way to keep the fees as relatively low as possible; he diligently and promptly followed-up on phone calls and emails; he represented us in court and mediation impressively and professionally - every step of the way. And the topping on the cake was how genuinely concerned Steve was with the outcome of our case. He was warm and clearly cared. That means so much during a stressful time. I simply cannot recommend Steve highly enough. He is true gem in his field. Thank you, Steve!!

Someone you can trust
Steve just handled my divorce and I was happy with the advice he gave me and how quickly he responded to my requests and those of my ex-husbands attorney. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable about Ga. family law and presents himself well in court. If you find yourself in need of a good divorce attorney, I would highly recommend Steve.
