At an early age my parents told me I was going to be a lawyer—primarily, because I liked to argue.
What I’ve learned over the years is that lawyering isn’t as much about arguing as it is about helping people. That’s what drove me to estate planning. It offers me the ability to use my skills to help people solve their problems.
Estate planning and the decisions involved delve into some of the most intimate and emotional parts of peoples lives. It’s not easy to address our own mortality—most folks want to stick their head in the sand and not deal with it. I’ve watched that scenario play out in my family and in others. In most cases, that does not turn out well. I’ve spent years working with people to make sure their wishes are documented to give them peace of mind. My team takes what is a dreaded task for many and makes it simple and clear—passing along not just your possessions, but also your values, to your family members. I am passionate about what I do—I enjoy the challenge that each client brings.
I’m married to Dr. Kathleen Coleman Hamilton and we have three children, Henry, Cole, and Bailey. We live in Valdosta, Georgia and attend Park Avenue United Methodist Church. We are avid travelers and enjoy vacationing in Panama City Beach, Florida. Family means everything to me and I’m sure it does to you. If we can help you with your estate planning needs, please give us a call.
