Tailor-Made Estate Plans

You, your family, and your legacy are unique. Whether you are planning for long-term care, providing for a special needs child, or preserving your children's inheritance, find an attorney who can craft the individualized estate planning strategy you need. Don't go to someone who also practices business law, family law, or some other branch of law while doing estate planning on the side.

Find a lawyer who never uses a cookie-cutter approach for resolving matters of probate or Medicare planning, or resorts to using a rote formula for writing up your estate plan. The estate planning attorney should tailor each estate plan to your specific goals, whether that includes ensuring you can afford a nursing home, take care of a special needs child, protect your child's inheritance after a divorce, and more.

Referred by Others

You should see what others have to say about the lawyer. You should use one that has been referred by, at least, hundreds of people. Visit the lawyer's website and see if hundreds or thousands of others have had great things to say about the lawyer. There is no greater way to evaluate a lawyer than what others have had to say about him or her and their services.

Well Done!!

We certainly enjoyed our participation with John Farrell in our estate planning. John's knowledge and experience led to a seamless transition for us. Everything was distilled to one notebook for easy usage. Well done !

We attended a free seminar to better understand how to plan the next stage of our life and felt comfortable that John knew how to help us get to where we wanted to go. John seemed to have a personal touch that dealt with our situation as we know it today. John has helped us make decisions the way we want it to be in the future. We have seen the problems an unplanned death can have on their loved ones after the grief is gone. We trust that John has thought it all through and has helped us get this off our "bucket list"….we know our five children will appreciate this in the future !

Estate Planning Author and Speaker

By working with an attorney who regularly writes or speaks about estate planning, you'll see an attorney who is on top of changes in estate planning laws. As an example, I've written a couple of different books on estate planning. One is tailored for a Georgia audience and is titled: Estate Planning for the Modern Family: A Georgian's guide to Wills, Trusts, and Powers of Attorney. The other is similarly named and ranked as a # 1 new release on Amazon. Additionally, I routinely hold seminars to educate the public on important estate planning topics such as how to protect your home and family from the Probate Court.

Services and Resources

Our mission is to ensure you have the knowledge, resources, and legal documentation needed to preserve and pass down your legacy. We will work one-on-one with you to tailor an estate planning strategy to you and your unique needs and in the future when you need to make updates or modifications. We are dedicated to helping you find peace of mind and take care of your loved ones.

About Canton

Canton is a city in Northern Georgia and is the county seat of Cherokee County, Georgia. Nearby is the Etowah River Park which is a dog-friendly community park featuring a paved waterfront trail, playgrounds, and a place to launch your canoe. In the downtown area of Canton, you will find the Canton Theatre. The Canton Theatre is an old theatre that has been existing since around 1911. Also downtown is the Cherokee County History Center which documents the history of Canton and Cherokee County from Native American inhabitants to the people and events that shaped Canton and Cherokee County to today.

Canton is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Interestingly, it was named after the Chinese city of Guangzhou. The name was chosen because a group of citizens wanted to make Canton the center of the silk industry which was concentrated in China at the time. Canton survived the Civil War and began to prosper as the county seat of Cherokee County.
