Estate Planning

Our estate planning attorneys can help you create a comprehensive estate plan, with all of the essential documents:

  • Will: This is the foundational document in any estate plan. It can name an executor of your estate and explain how and to whom you wish to distribute your assets.
  • Durable power of attorney: This document allows you to name an agent to handle your financial affairs if needed.
  • Health care power of attorney: The health care power of attorney is similar to the durable power of attorney, but it is focused on medical matters rather than on financial matters. It allows you to name an agent to handle your health care decisions if needed.
  • Living will: Often called an advance health care directive, the living will is a document explaining your end-of-life health care decisions or choices for the event that you cannot communicate those wishes on your own.

Asheboro Estate Administration | Probate

When someone has a family member who passes away, it is time to administer the estate. For many people, the role of administering an estate can be a daunting task fraught with possible legal danger. Our experienced probate lawyers can help you through every aspect of probating an estate:

  • Working with the clerk of courts
  • Determining creditors and settling debts from the estate
  • Determining the beneficiaries and distributing assets
  • Staying in compliance with all relevant laws and fulfilling your fiduciary duties

In many probate cases, disputes arise regarding the validity of a will or the actions of the administrator. We provide strong negotiation and litigation services for people facing probate disputes of this kind.

Our office is conveniently located in downtown Asheboro, within walking distance of the Randolph County Courthouse and the Registrar of Deeds. To speak with an attorney about your estate planning and probate needs, call 877-405-6861 or contact us online.
