An Estate Planning Attorney Ready To Help You Gain Peace Of Mind
When it comes to protecting hard-earned assets and planning for future generations, many people fail to put a basic estate plan together.

An Estate Plan Shows How Much You Care
An estate plan is for the loved ones in your life as much as it is for you. If a person dies without a will, North Carolina’s laws of intestacy will determine how that person’s assets are distributed. That may or may not follow the decedent’s true wishes.
In addition, it may make sense to create a trust and avoid the probate process altogether. Many people avoid developing an estate plan because they don’t fully understand it. We will take the time to review all aspects of your situation, talk through your goals and match you with estate planning tools that meet those objectives. We cut through the jargon and make sure you understand what each tool accomplishes.
