At Weinstein & Black we believe that if you have a homeowners or commercial property insurance claim, whether it is due to fire damage, water damage, wind damage, theft, vandalism, or any other cause of loss, and it should be paid according to the terms and conditions of your insurance policy, then it needs to be paid appropriately. Along those lines, we represent individuals and businesses when they have homeowners or property insurance claims.
Our representation may be at the beginning, in the middle, or after a claim has been denied. If we are hired during a claim, we will work to ensure your claim is covered and will also help ensure your claim gets paid appropriately. In addition, if applicable, we will represent you at an Examination Under Oath and during an investigation by the insurance company. Furthermore, if your claim has been denied, whether for alleged material misrepresentation or a perceived exclusion in your insurance policy, we will commence litigation against your insurance company, including, but not limited to, Allstate, State Farm, Travelers, Auto Owners and Georgia Farm Bureau. And if available, we will pursue bad faith penalties.

Child Custody and Parenting Agreements
Our goal at Weinstein & Black, is to assist you in creating a child custody and parenting plan that reflects the realities of your family’s situation and focuses on your children’s best interests.
Will the children do best living primarily with one parent, or would it be best if they lived with each parent an equal amount of time? How will decisions be made about their education, medical care, activities and more? What will happen if a parent needs to relocate? These are just a few of the questions that need to be addressed, and the answers will be different for each family.
One of the most challenging parts of negotiating the correct amount of child support is determining a parent’s actual income. For example, when a parent is self-employed, they may receive business perks that need to be calculated into the personal income. In more complicated cases, we may suggest retaining a forensic accountant to help determine a parent’s actual income.
The issue of spousal support is often a challenging aspect of the divorce or separation process. In addition to the obvious financial concerns that arise, there are many emotions associated with paying or receiving spousal support. We aim to help our clients structure realistic spousal support plans that will allow them to move forward with a sense of financial and emotional security, regardless of whether they are the party paying or receiving support.

If you were to suddenly fall ill or die unexpectedly it would leave your family members in a distressed emotional state. Your spouse or children would be left with the task of putting your affairs in order while coping with their own grief. However, when you plan for the future by putting your affairs in good order, you relieve your beloved family members of undue stress and guesswork. There may also be times when you need to modify the documents that you previously put in place due to changes in your life. If you are alive and of sound mind, you are legally allowed to update your Will and some of your trusts. The attorneys at Weinstein & Black are skilled in handling the creation or modification of any estate needs you may have.
If you have been left as the administrator or executor of a loved one’s estate, you may have very little time to grieve for your loss. If a person has no Will or Trust, has only a Will, or has a Trust that has not been properly funded, it often requires the probate process. The executor is left coping with their emotional loss while also dealing with the reality of practical, financial situations. The combination of the complexity of probate and a mind struggling with loss can easily lead to a critical mistake. We are here to be a resource for you.
