Firm Overview

We are an AV-rated firm, the highest rating offered by Martindale Hubbell.

Caldwell, Propst & DeLoach, LLP is Atlanta’s leading law firm for Estate, Trust and Fiduciary Litigation, as well as for estate planning and probate administration. Building on Harmon Caldwell’s experience as one of the city’s top trial lawyers for estate and trust matters; Floyd Propst’s 25 year history as the Fulton County Probate Court Judge; and Don DeLoach’s decades of expertise in estate planning, the firm has consistently been recognized as one of Georgia’s best.

Today, the firm consists of 11 lawyers, all of whom share the same commitment to meticulous case preparation, creative use of the law, hard work, and delivering value to the client. The firm attributes its litigation successes to a commitment to these goals and ideals.

“We understand that clients rely on our expertise, experience, and our judgment. We also understand that the cost of legal services is critical to our clients. We work hard to use our skills effectively and efficiently. We do not waste our talents, our clients’ money, or anyone’s time. If your case is outside our area of concentration, we will direct you to an attorney who has experience in that area. We believe that our relationship with our clients is of utmost importance. Litigation requires that the client and lawyer work closely in order to achieve the best possible result. We endeavour to keep our clients informed and to involve them in every aspect of the case. Our expertise enables us to educate and advise clients on the legal process so that each client is able to make an informed decision when confronted with the prospect of litigation.” – Harmon Caldwell
