Stephen Weyer (he goes by "Steve") grew up in Kentucky and Ohio, but he has been a resident of Georgia on-and-off for more than a decade. In 2016, Steve and his wife moved to Atlanta for good.
Steve started his firm in 2017 after several years working as a litigator at a boutique law firm in New York City. As a litigator occasionally handling cases involving a death, Steve has seen both the benefits of having a thoughtful estate plan and the negative consequences of lacking one. Steve opened his firm with a focus on helping clients find peace of mind in the present and prevent problems for their spouses, children, and heirs down the road. In 2018, Steve closed The Law Office of Stephen Weyer and joined the firm of Cohen & Caproni LLC.
Prior to law school Steve spent three years directing a soup kitchen and homeless shelter. He also spent two growing seasons as an apprentice on an organic farm. These days he participates in a number of volunteer programs in and around Atlanta, including Lawyers for Equal Justice, the Fulton County Housing Court Assistance Center, Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, the Georgia Heirs Property Law Center, Georgia Legal Services, and the Start:ME program at Emory's Goizueta Business School. He was named a "Pro Bono All-Star" in the June 2018 edition of the Georgia Bar Journal.
Steve is a member of the American Bar Association, the Fiduciary Law Section of the Georgia Bar, the Atlanta Bar Association's Probate and Planning Section, and the Emory University Planned Giving Advisory Board. He is admitted to the bar in Georgia and New York.
Steve has both a law degree and a master's degree in theology from Emory University. At Emory Law, Steve was a Woodruff Fellow, recipient of the most prestigious scholarship offered by the school.
Steve and his wife live just outside of Decatur, Georgia. He enjoys reading, identifying local species on walks around through the various neighborhoods of Atlanta, and volunteering. Steve is a member of the pastoral council at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.
