My general law practice has provided legal solutions to the Augusta area since 1967. I am proud to offer my services to residents of Augusta and surrounding communities in the following legal practice areas:


  • Wills and probate
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advanced medical directives
  • Family law
  • Guardianships
  • Debt adjustments
My law practice has grown and prospered over the decades, thanks to word of mouth. My clientele tend to be retired people and senior citizens, but I of course also open my doors to younger people who value the voice of experience. If your legal concern is not included in the list above, I still welcome the opportunity to discuss it with you and recommend a course of action that may help you achieve your goal, whatever that goal is. If I am the right attorney for your case, I will be glad to apply my skills and experience to your unique situation. If I believe you would be better served by another law firm, I am prepared to tap into my extensive network of contacts and recommend a trustworthy lawyer whose focus is in line with your legal needs.

Columbia County Guardianship Lawyer

Perhaps you live out of state and have a legal concern involving your elderly parent, grandparent or other family member in Georgia. I may be able to help you resolve legal concerns regarding:

  • Guardianship of family members with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia
  • Conservatorships
  • Disposition of property after death of a family member
  • Removal of names of deceased people from property deeds
  • Resolution of debts, whether by negotiating debt reduction or reduction of payments due

Quite a few senior citizens — and younger people, too — end up with difficulties involving debts. Credit card accounts may have gotten out of control after a health crisis. It is not always necessary to consider bankruptcy in cases like these. I often help clients stop harassment by bill collectors through other means, such as direct negotiation with creditors and collection agencies.
