Yes, there is at least one probate, estate, and trust lawyer in Georgia and Alabama who is a Knight of Columbus.

Several friends over the years have invited me to become a Knight of Columbus.  I delayed because I was involved in lots of other things until two things happened:

(1) My good friend in Covington, Georgia, T.J. McCaustland, persisted longer than anyone else in inviting me and mentioned it almost every time we met, and

(2) Someone at my parish, John Walston, stood in front of the congregation, described how the Knights the Columbus had changed his life for the better, and invited me to join.

A light turned on, and I knew that it was time to become a Knight.  It is more than a men’s club, but a fraternal organization built on Christian truths. Personal growth as a man, husband, and father comes by following the ways of the order.

I admit that I was reluctant to join a fraternal organization of any sort since the Boy Scouts for fear of somehow losing myself in a group.  With the right group, however, it is possible to become more of your best self by taking part in humble service.  If there is a fundraiser going on at the parish, a breakfast or dinner, or someone being recognized for doing good, the Knights are usually there.

It is no secret that the Knights of Columbus were founded in the 19th century partly to take care of the widows and orphans of the members, and I am in a unique position to help with estate planning, probating of estates, and other legal needs of Knights.
