Welcome to the law firm of Kathleen Womack, Attorney at Law. Serving clients in Georgia since graduation from Emory Law School in 1986, with an emphasis on meeting the legal needs of the LGBT community. We take pride in providing personal service and individual attention in many areas of the law, with a particular emphasis on the following types of legal matters:

 

 

Wills and Estate Planning, including the drafting and preparation of Last Will and Testaments and other documents such as financial and durable powers of attorney, and advanced directives for health care, (formerly known in Georgia as living wills). As a wills and estate planning lawyer, the bulk of my practice focuses on the careful crafting of wills and other legal instruments so as to ensure the distribution of one’s assets and estate according to their precise wishes.

 

Domestic Partnership Issues, and the numerous matters unique to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) community and domestic partners, such as handling Second Parent Adoptions, and drafting domestic partnership agreements. Since same sex marriages and/or civil unions are not yet recognized in this state, individuals involved in domestic partnerships require an added level of financial and personal protection beyond their mutual agreement on these important matters. I also represent gay and lesbian individuals involved in domestic partnership dissolutions, from the negotiation of the terms of the dissolution up through and including mediation, or trial of the issues if litigation becomes necessary to resolve same sex partner property disputes.

Probate of Estates is the legal process of transferring assets upon the death of an individual, either by the express instructions contained in the deceased person's Last Will & Testament, or if the person died without a Last Will & Testament, then through Georgia Intestacy laws.

 

You can always be assured that your case will be afforded the highest level of respect and confidentiality, your case will be personally handled by me and will not be passed off to an associate or paralegal, and your telephone calls will be returned.

 

My law office is located in Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia, near the Perimeter Mall area, convenient to downtown Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Midtown, Buckhead, Dunwoody, Alpharetta and Roswell.
