Law Office of G. Alan Dodson

Our Story

Taking pride in solving our clients’ personal, family and business legal issues, G. Alan Dodson is dedicated to providing clients and their families with informed and effective legal advise.

Alan began his career as an associate attorney for Mr. John M. Cogburn, Jr. practicing estate planning, trust and estate litigation and closely held business law until he became Mr. Cogburn’s partner in 2004. Mr. Cogburn passed away, and Mr. Dodson began his firm, the Law of Office of G. Alan Dodson.

Since then, Alan Dodson and his legal staff continue to serve hundreds of businesses and families across the Atlanta metropolitan area with estate planning, administration, conflict and closely held business needs (over 1700 families to date.)

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to minimize or avoid family conflicts as well as unnecessary and costly procedural hurdles or taxes. Mr. Dodson encourages clients to acknowledge the realities of their own family situation in order to create a practical estate plan that substantially addresses clients’ objectives in a smart and efficient manner.

For example, a will is somewhat similar to a business contract except it involves the distribution of a person’s assets among his or her family members at death. However, unlike most business contracts where all parties typically have a seat at the table, the beneficiaries typically do not. There’s family history and the client, typically a parent, will not be around to resolve any family differences.
