Q Attorney Profile

Robert Hughes, Jr., is the founder of Hughes and Associates in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A top-rated, award-winning lawyer with more than 27 years of legal experience, Mr. Hughes represents a diverse range of clients throughout the greater Atlanta metro region and surrounding areas who have legal needs involving probate and trust litigation, estate administration, estate planning, business law, commercial litigation, civil litigation and wrongful death.

A practical and sensible attorney, Mr. Hughes has earned a reputation for being able to identify potential problems his clients may face and for offering the solid, straightforward advice they need to make the best-informed decisions on the matters that affect their cases. A former business owner himself, he understands the unique struggles and concerns small-business owners can experience, and he strives to be the kind of attorney his clients can rely on to help identify risks and ways to avoid costly mistakes when running their companies.

A pragmatic problem-solver, Mr. Hughes prides himself on being able to devise customized strategies and solutions that will help his clients protect themselves, their assets and their businesses with an eye on future success. Along with his litigation practice, he has successfully handled over 20 appellate cases before the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court. Many of his cases have set new legal precedents and helped establish new laws in the areas of probate, wills and business torts.

Mr. Hughes graduated from Florida State University in 1977 with a degree in hotel and restaurant management. He then helped establish his family\'s printing company while assisting with its day-to-day operations. Learning firsthand the need so many small-business owners have of finding a quality, trustworthy attorney, Mr. Hughes attended Georgia State University College of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor in 1992.

Along with practicing before all of Georgia\'s state courts, the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court, Mr. Hughes is also admitted to practice before all U.S. District Courts in Georgia as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1993, he received the Gwinnett County Bar Association Pro Bono Project Award, and in 2001, he received the 10 Year Award from the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation’s Saturday Lawyer Program.

  • Steen-Jorgensen v. Huff, 352 Ga. App. 727, 835 S.E.2d 707 (2019). We were able to properly secure a reversal of a judgment against our client by having the Court of Appeals direct the trial court to make specific findings of fact regarding whether the trial court should hear a case about appointing a guardian in the county where the proposed ward previously resided. The trial court made a brief unsupported decision about who a guardian should be.  The Court of Appeals told the trial court that it needs to set out very specific findings in its opinion., 2019

App. 91, 821 S.E.2d 561 (2018)  In this case, the Court of Appeals upheld the trial court which had found that the personal representative of an estate had the authority to enforce all rights that come with the ownership of shares of stock in a company.  The issues were related to the wife of her deceased husband seeking to secure financial information from a company in which her husband owned shares of stock. The ultimate answer is that the executor or administrator can have access to all information a deceased shareholder could have had., 2018
