Peter Gleichman

Attorney at Law

Woodstock, GA 30188

Peter Gleichman is the Estate Planning Attorney for the Atlanta chapter of the Foundation for Personal Financial Education. Peter holds a Juris Doctor from the University of Maine School of Law, where he was a member of Law Review. After serving a judicial clerkship for the New Hampshire Supreme Court in 1982-83, Peter began practicing law in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where he was and continues to be licensed in the States of New Hampshire and Maine.

After practicing in New England for 17 years, Peter and his family moved to Georgia in 2000, having become licensed in the State of Georgia the year before, in 1999. Peter practices with the firm of Gleichman & Debranski, LLC in Woodstock. Estate planning has been an integral and essential part of his practice for the last 26 years. Peter is married to his wife Carol, and they have two children, Louisa (23) and Michael (21).

Peter finds great satisfaction is assisting individuals with estate planning in getting their affairs in order and thereby achieving peace of mind. Too many people procrastinate in obtaining even the most basic legal documents such as a last will and testament, financial power of attorney, and advanced directive for health care. The results of not having these important documents can be catastrophic and can be so easily avoided through education about their importance and ease of being put in place.
