Estate Planning – Estate planning is the series of preparation tasks that serve to manage an individual’s assets in the event of their incapacity or death. Proper estate planning may involve the use of Wills and Trusts, as well as other documents such as Powers of Attorney, Health Care Powers of Attorney and Living Wills. Everyone, regardless of personal wealth, should have an estate plan, even if it is a simple will. Call today to start your planning.


Probate & Estate Administration – All wills of persons who are citizens of North Carolina are required to be filed with the County Clerk of Court, regardless of the size of the estate. This process can become daunting for many clients, including the preparation of the multitude of forms and the accounting procedures. Call today to schedule a 30-minute no-risk consultation.


Estate Litigation – Estate litigation includes several different types of litigation originating with the Clerk of Court’s office, including contested guardianships, caveats, and challenges to Powers of Attorney.
