Harmon W. Caldwell, Jr. JD

Partner, Caldwell, Propst & DeLoach, LLP

I have practiced in Atlanta for 41 years. I handle Trust and Estate disputes, business litigation, and family law. I have tried several hundred jury trial cases. I have handled over 60 cases in the Georgia Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. I have been involved in some of Atlanta's most interesting cases. I represented Bernice and Martin King in the dispute with their brother Dexter over their mother Coretta Scott King's Estate. I represented Frances "Tut" Woodruff in contesting her father Coca-Cola magnate George W. Woodruff's will, David West in his dispute with his father over West Lumber Company, and Anny Stanley in her divorce from her husband TV Evangelist Rev. Charles Stanley. During my career, I have often represented individuals from Atlanta's wealthiest families, from Rollins, to Candler, Carlos to Bowen, and while the dollars at stake are sometimes large, the issues are usually the same. I have successfully prosecuted numerous actions against banks such as SunTrust, Wachovia and Regions for breach of their fiduciary duties in the handling of client's interests in various estates and trusts. I have represented hundreds of other individuals, many wealthy, many not. However, in almost every situation, someone's future was significantly impacted by what I did. It is indeed a compliment when a client chooses you to represent them in a time of crisis. Because of this, I try to be creative in my approach to every case. I enjoy working with clients and the intellectual challenge of presenting a client's case in the most effective way possible. Over the years, many of my clients have become close personal friends, and that for me is something of which I am very proud.
