Recently friends of mine had children. They wondered if they should have a will executed before the child was born. I told them no: it makes more sense to wait until the child is born since the child wll negate the will. Save the money and do it afterwards.

The rumors are true: insurance companies are taking a hard line when it comes to handling the recent spate of snow cases in Atlanta. While the slick conditions of the roads is a mitigating factor, this gives the liability carriers no reason to blanket deny negligence cases. We may be filing a higher number of litigation cases in the coming months if insurance continue to take this tack.

A woman told me the story that her father had handwritten a small change on his will and didn’t tell anyone about it. He died recently and the woman now has the decision of whether to probate what is probably an invalid will or to simply file a no administration necessary. Either way, since all the heirs agree, I gave her the instructions on how to do it and saved her hundreds of dollars. The probate procedures in Georgia are not complicated.

Client yesterday came to my office wishing to sue MARTA. He had been hurt when a MARTA bus ran into his truck. Problem: his accident had occurred a year ago. In certain personal injury cases, the statute in Georgia is not two years but instead 6 months. When you sue the government, you must give them notice within 6 months that you have a claim. Because he had not given this “ante litem” notice, he was out of luck.

I represented a 17 year old man for a DUI and a possession charge last week. He had marijuana in the car but claimed it was not his. We plead to the DUI (there wasn’t much we could do since his blood test came back positive) but were able to dismiss the possession charge. He’s going to lose his license for a year but at least he won’t have a drug charge on his record.
