Estate Planning & Administration

Transfer of assets to loved ones during life and at death with minimal tax consequences requires careful planning. Stewart Melvin & Frost successfully uses sophisticated tax planning and all available techniques to achieve clients’ objectives. The firm was among the first in Georgia to use family limited partnerships as the centerpiece of estate planning.

Our attorneys are recognized statewide for their expertise in assisting clients with complex estate and trust administration issues. We recognize that the estate settlement process occurs, by its very nature, during an emotionally difficult time and that compassionate and caring legal advice can be of great comfort to our clients. We also understand that there are times when litigation is unavoidable. That's why we strive to offer an uncommon balance of compassion for our clients and passion for the law.
