It took an unexpected 6.8 magnitude earthquake during law school for our managing attorney, Tanieka Thompson Mungo, to recognize the critical need for estate planning at every stage of life. Since then, the Thompson Mungo Firm has been committed to creating powerful plans for non-traditional estate planners, including newlyweds, recent parents, young business owners, and more. We are passionate about providing the unparalleled peace of mind of a well-planned estate to individuals from all walks of life, regardless of age, occupation, or size of the estate. At our firm, we believe estate planning is for everybody! We are proud to support the communities of McDonough, Stockbridge, Hampton, Covington, and Conyers, Georgia through all matters of estate.
Passing without a will, referred to legally as dying in intestacy, triggers an immediate freeze on your properties, holdings, and other assets ahead of a lengthy and expensive court process called probate. Probate is a complex, time-intensive process that requires anywhere from nine months to over two years to settle. It is also an expensive process, often leading to the court and legal fees that total a full 3-7% of the estate. Perhaps worst of all, the probate process unnecessarily compounds the stress and emotional turmoil of your loved ones during an already challenging time.
By carefully planning the distribution of your assets, you can support and protect cherished causes, enduring interests, and the ones you love in accordance with your wishes and without a lengthy legal process. The Thompson Mungo Firm is highly experienced, skilled, and successful when it comes to creating an array of comprehensive estate planning documents, including wills, trusts, power of attorney status, and child and healthcare directives.
Whether you want to prepare for anything the future may bring, or you're a power of attorney navigating the complicated legal fallout from a sudden or unexpected loss, we are prepared to passionately and exhaustively advocate on your behalf.
