Savannah, GA asked in Probate for Georgia

Q: I am executor of my mother's estate. I live in Savannah. Should I use lawyer from which place?

I need help looking at Mama's account and taxes. There is probably just the house and some shares in some family stock. Hopefully I will be able to use phone conferences.

A: probate matters are the same throughout the state. Only on rare occasions is a court appearance needed. Otherwise, you can use a lawyer from anywhere who is licensed to practice in Georgia. You should look for a lawyer experienced in probate administration.
