MY BACKGROUND

Following graduation from Belhaven College in Jackson, Mississippi, I worked for several nonprofit organizations before getting my law degree from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California in 1984.

I served as Legal Counsel for the Presbyterian Church in America from 1984-1988 and then worked with Ronald Blue and Company while transitioning into private practice.

During this time I had a growing interest in estate planning as I saw the dramatic difference between situations where someone properly planned for their disability and death and those situations where little or no planning left behind a legacy of confusion, disorder, and often resentment and broken relationships.

I have had extensive training in advanced estate planning techniques through WealthCounsel, the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys, and other professional groups.  I continually seek to improve my understanding and skills so that I can better serve clients who have entrusted me with their estate planning.

The friendships I have formed with clients are very important to me.  I have been in practice long enough to help more than one generation of a number of families with their estate planning needs.

I have been selected for the "Five Star Estate Planning Attorney" award for six years by Atlanta Magazine.

I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your estate planning needs if you would call me at (770) 392-3310 or email me at jim@ostensonlaw.com
