Why do I need a will?
In North Carolina, if you do not have a properly executed will, your property and assets will pass by the North Carolina laws of intestacy rather than according to your desires. A properly executed will assures you that your property and assets will pass to the individuals you have designated after your death. Call us today for an appointment so that we can prepare a valid North Carolina will for you and assure you that your property will pass as you want it to upon your death.

Do I need a power of attorney or health care power of attorney?
You may need a durable power of attorney, or a statutory health care power of attorney, or both. A general power of attorney designation does not automatically give someone the right to make decisions regarding your health care in the event of your incapacity, and a health care power of attorney does not relate to your financial and legal matters. Make an appointment with us today and we will be glad to discuss with you exactly what documents we need to prepare to meet your legal needs.
