About Our Team

Atlanta Wills + Trusts is a different kind of estate planning law firm – this was intentional. While we have the knowledge, experience, and team to help our clients prepare a will, a trust, powers of attorney and other important documents to protect their family, our goal is not just to provide our client with a packet of documents and send them on their way.

Rather, our goal is for our clients to walk away with a plan. A plan that works for them, their family and their lives when they need it to work. A plan they know what to do with, who to tell about, and what next steps to take to ensure they are protected and those they love the most are protected. A plan that isn’t just a transaction, but the beginning of a relationship.

That type of plan requires a law firm, like ours, dedicated to being different, intentional and thoughtful about working with clients to make sure time is taken to answer the important questions and educate our clients.

Each member of our team is dedicated to our clients receiving a plan that works. Meet our team.

Lori is passionate about protecting who she loves the most and protecting those who cannot protect themselves. Which is just one of the reasons our clients love and appreciate how she helps them through the process of planning with our team.

Helping and wanting to understand others is not just a part of Lori’s job here at Atlanta Wills + Trusts Law Group, it’s an important part of Lori’s educational journey.
