    GPLG Stands Against Racism

    logos-image logos-image logos-image


    The Declaration of Independence says the United States was founded on the principle that all people are created equally, and that freedom and justice are unalienable rights to which every person is entitled. 

    The recent senseless death of George Floyd while in police custody is a wake up call for every American that we are not living the words we say we believe.  Deaths like the ones George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery experienced would not be possible if we were living out the words written in the Declaration of Independence.  George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery are just two of the most recent in a long line of Black Americans to experience unspeakable violence because of the color of their skin. Continuing to be silent in the face of these undeniable facts is unacceptable. 

    My name is Erik Broel, and I am the founder and CEO of Georgia Probate Law Group.  At GPLG, we stand against racism. Racism is an evil and irrational social construct that should have no place in the United States or anywhere else.  

    We stand on the side of justice and equality for every person, regardless of what he or she looks like.  The senseless deaths of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, are reprehensible and inexcusable.  Those responsible should be brought to justice.

     To our team members, clients, and colleagues, we stand with you in recognizing your pain and we hear your voices.  We agree that Black Lives Matter. As Americans, we cannot say we believe the words written in the Declaration of Independence unless those words apply to every American, including our Black and brown brothers and sisters. 

    We all recite in the Pledge of Allegiance that we are one nation under God.  If we really believe that, then it is time for all of us to step up to put an end to racism.
