About Estate & Elder Law Hamilton Trust

If you’re here, you have a family you love and want to protect. 

Family means everything to us, too. That’s why we opened our practice!

You won’t find stuffy lawyers here. Instead, you’ll find a caring team just like you – people who want to help people. 

At Hamilton Trust, Estate & Elder Law, we believe…

Education comes first

Knowledge is power! We empower our clients with education so they can make decisions with clarity.

Family is what matters most

Clients aren’t a transaction. We treat our clients like we would our own family.

You deserve to be charged fairly.

We like to keep things transparent, especially our prices. Most of our services use a flat pricing structure. We will be upfront about it, so you don’t have to worry later.

We are here for you for a lifetime

We don’t just hand you a pretty binder and say “farewell”! Life is full of changes, and we want to help you now and whatever the future brings.

We are honored to continue John Bennett’s legacy, serving South Georgia in the areas of estate planning and elder law.

For nearly a quarter of a century, John and Helen Bennett’s original home turned law office at 2502 N. Oak Street has been synonymous with estate planning. That tradition continues today as Hamilton Trust, Estate & Elder Law whose team includes members of John’s trusted and experienced staff.
