Elizabeth Wheeler is the most knowledgeable and professional lawyer in Georgia, perhaps in the southeastern part of the country. She’s immensely responsible and a pleasure with whom to work. Michele Satterlund US Army Educator, Retired
Elizabeth M. Wheeler has a passion for working with people of all ages to sort through the various issues that arise in planning for incapacity or death. Once these issues are resolved and clearly reduced to written documents that have legal force and effect, her clients can focus on living. She has a particular love for the field of elder law and has known that this would be a focus of her career since she was a sophomore at Georgia Tech. Ms. Wheeler has loved people of the eldest generation since she was a child. In her early years growing up in Alabama, one of her favorite things to do was pick her Grandmother Morgan’s strawberries and water her droves of flowers. As a teen and young adult, she loved taking trips with her Grandma Carter and having conversations with her about politics and books. Now, with four children of her own and her grandparents passed on, Ms. Wheeler loves to have conversations with her elderly clients. It is a joy to be able to remove the burden of paperwork necessary for planning for the future, and it is a delight to laugh with and learn from her clients as they recount their own stories.
After graduating from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1994 with a B.S. in International Affairs, Ms. Wheeler attended Mercer University School of Law, where she graduated Cum Laude. She began her legal career in 1997, in North Georgia as an associate with a mid-sized law firm formerly known as Minor, Bell & Neal, where she later became a partner. She and her family moved to Acworth, Georgia in 2008 for her husband’s engineering career as a Plant Manager. Ms. Wheeler has worked part-time as a solo practitioner for the last twelve years. For the last seven of those twelve years, Ms. Wheeler also home schooled her four children to better enable their family to move to Reno, Nevada for her husband’s job transfer, followed by a move to Bowling Green Kentucky. With each move, Ms. Wheeler continued to serve Georgia clients, at their request, on a limited basis. In October, 2019, Ms. Wheeler’s family returned to Georgia, settling in the Newnan/Peachtree City area. She looks forward to continuing to serve the residents of the State of Georgia as a legal practitioner.
