About Michelle WilsonSpecializing in elder law and estate planning.
Michelle Wilson has been making difficult legal subjects and problems easier to understand and resolve for residents of Cumming, Georgia and the surrounding North Metro area for more than thirteen years. Unlike many attorneys in the North Metro area, Michelle specializes in the areas of Eldercare or Elder Law, Estate Planning, Special Needs Planning, and Probate Law. She has specialized in these areas for the past ten years.
Getting old, death, disability and dying are the subjects she talks about every day and she loves helping people face the realities of their present and future with empathy, common sense and a little humor. Countless times, her clients have commented on how unexpectedly easy it was to talk and plan about these subjects and how they would have planned earlier had they known it would be so easy and unexpectedly pleasant to get the planning done.
Michelle grew up in Forsyth County and is the only lawyer in her family. With a business undergraduate degree and a creative engineering mindset, she enjoys crafting unique solutions for families in need. Michelle Wilson understands the fear may people have of calling attorneys – believing they will be charged the moment an attorney picks up the phone. That’s why she will give each potential client a free thirty-minute consultation. Why? Because she wants to be sure she can help the caller before they pay for services. What does that mean for callers? It means that she frequently gives potential clients simple solutions that do not require her help.
Michelle’s practice is not just about the dollar sign on the bottom line; it’s about helping families in her community eliminate unnecessary conflict, loss, and worry. That’s why the law firm of Wilson Legal is where “Preparation Meets Peace of Mind”.
As a member of the Rotary Club of South Forsyth, Michelle works to live by the Rotarian motto of Service above Self. She is a past board member of the Bald Ridge Boys Lodge and a frequent speaker at the local library and local churches explaining the basics of probate filings and planning basics for powers of attorney and healthcare powers. She is a member of the Cumming First United Methodist Church and a frequent volunteer and supporter of local charities.
When she’s not working hard for her clients, you might find Michelle singing the “A Tooty Ta” song with her four-year-old, Zelda, playing tug-of-war with her dog, Gizmo, or running a 5k with her husband, Mike.
