Ms
I called Mr. Chambers for a consultation on a probate matter and he gave me some very concise, cogent advice on a difficult legal situation. I would highly recommend his services.

Settle issues with joint ownership after the death of my wife
John was a major help in settling the estate of my deceased wife that resulted in moving ownership of all our joint holdings to my name. At the same time, he applied and was awarded a year's support through DeKalb County Probate Court that removed my Dunwoody Home's property taxes for 2019. He was always prompt in communicating the status of his actions so I was kept clearly up-to-date. I am rehiring his services to update my Last Will and Testament which is badly out of date today.

Passionate and personable
I found myself in need first of some guidance and then documentation. Mr. Chambers listened politely to my situation over the phone. I needed to determine the proper process to become a successor trustee from a 40-year old testamentary trust. Time was of the essence. There were many issues that had to be clarified before the guidance could be given but Mr. Chambers explained that he would take the time 'pro-bono' to get a clear understanding of the facts before he would recommend a solution. Given the size of this estate, I feared that it would not be large enough to qualify for his time. But he helped me decide on a new direction and quoted me a fair price to put in place an estate plan which included a living revocable trust, a will, and other associated documents. He always was available to take my calls and handled the execution of documents professionally. I highly recommend him for your estate planning needs.

Just the attorney we needed!
My wife and I were referred to John after my brother passed away with no will or trust in place. John patiently guided us through the necessary steps to obtain the correct papers to proceed with executing the estate. All this was done between California and Atlanta which could have been difficult, but John made it happen seamlessly. We are very grateful for everything he did for us and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking a professional, honest, caring attorney who gets the job done!

Quick consultation
After being given the run around all morning over an issue I needed advisement for, I called John Chambers and he didn't hesitate to give me all the information I needed. He's very knowledgeable and professional. Thanks Mr. Chambers. I will reach out to you for any information I need in the future.

Great help with my brother's estate
John Chambers came as a recommendation from a friend of mine who had the same circumstances I had to deal with a brother in Atlanta who died with no will/no family/single. Living in California, John held my hand and walked me through all the necessary steps to get Temporary/Permanent Personal Representative status to dealing with my brother's estate. When I arrived in Atlanta, he had all the necessary papers drawn and appointments made at the Court House so my time was not wasted sitting around. He provided clear direction and support in how to handle the probate without having to spend unnecessary funds. He is extremely personable and good listener in addition to be a more than capable lawyer. It is without any hesitation that I would recommend John Chambers for any assistance you may need.
