Assistance with the protection of personal and business wealth.
Ellijay is well-known for two things: Its apples, and being a picturesque Southern small town. Located in Gilmer County in the North Georgia mountains, Ellijay is home to about 1,700 people — and we like it that way. Here, everyone knows your name, and enjoying dinner with your neighbor is just another regular night!
One fixture in Ellijay that has remained unchanged is the estate planning services provided by Fouts Law Group. For many years, we have been helping Ellijay residents plan for their futures. Though time seems to move slower here, Georgia estate planning law is always changing, and we are adapting with it.
Whether you’re 18 or 88, it’s never too early or too late to begin planning for your future. It is crucial you have an estate planning attorney who knows the details of the law and can help create a plan to protect yourself and your family today and for years to come.

Protecting Your Wellbeing
There may come a time in your life when you become incapacitated. It may happen due to a car wreck, an accident on the job or a significant medical event. These incidents can happen at any time in your life, and it is important you are protected if they ever happen to you. One of the most important factors is choosing who has power of attorney. This person will make many important decisions on your behalf, such as the medical care. We can help ensure all paperwork is in order if you are ever incapacitated.
Fouts Law Group can also help you enjoy your Golden Years by creating a plan for how you will pay for a nursing home or assisted living community. Many seniors rely on Medicaid to help pay for a nursing home. Without a proper plan in place, you and your family could end up spending thousands of dollars for care. Fouts Law Group can help you with Medicaid planning and can also help you find the right nursing home while simultaneously protecting your assets.
Protecting Your Wealth
It’s a common misconception that only “old people” need a will or trust. The truth is, it’s never too early to protect your assets. Likewise, it’s never too late to draft a will to decide what will happen to your wealth once you pass away. Even if you don’t have millions of dollars in assets, a will can be highly beneficial. Whether your estate is big or small, you want it passed on to the right people after you’re gone. Fouts Law Group can help.
Part of protecting your wealth is growing it wisely. Fouts Law Group’s affiliated sister firm Retirement Planning Specialists, LLC can help you do just that. They can help you set up the right retirement fund for your situation, as well as help you choose the right accounts to invest in. Together, we can help protect your assets for today and the future.
