My name is Paul Black, and I am a Georgia attorney whose practice focuses on elder law, estate planning, estate administration (probate), uncontested guardianships and conservatorships, and Special Needs planning. I strive to give each of my clients the same level of care and attention that I would want for my own family members. To learn more about me, visit the About Paul page. If you have legal questions and want to schedule a phone call or an initial in-person consultation, please contact me.
