Attorney Althea Caces practices primarily in the areas of Probate, Elder Law, and Estate Planning in Cobb County. After growing up in Cobb County, and enjoying the atmosphere of the Marietta Square area, she chose to locate her office in downtown Marietta in 2002 and to focus her practice in this area, although she does handle matters outside of the Cobb County area at the request of clients.While she does extensive litigation involving guardianships, conservatorships, trusts, and estates, she also provides planning services to individuals of all ages who are making decisions as to the disposition of their estates, the management of their property through a power of attorney, and other related issues. As president of the Elder Law Section of the Cobb Bar Association from 2005-2014, she has remained actively involved in providing constantly updated information regarding these fields to the members of the Section and organized an annual Continuing Legal Education seminar that is available to attorneys around the state of Georgia.
As chair of the Elder Law Committee of the Young Lawyerâ€™s Division of the State Bar of Georgia for two years, she helped to oversee the revision and publication of the Senior Citizens Handbook, which is distributed throughout the state of Georgia by the Division of Aging Services. Althea began to focus her practice in these areas shortly after graduating from law school at Georgia State University. She attended law school after receiving her Masterâ€™s degree from Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia and her undergraduate degree from Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia.
