Client Comments

"John Wallace is an institution in estate planning law. As a law school graduate (and member of the Georgia bar since 1979), when I was dealing with my late Father's business affairs and estate, I turned to the best. I had been to several Continuing Legal Education seminars where John was keynote--I was impressed then and remain impressed. He has been invaluable as an estate attorney, and I consider him a friend."
