Probate and Estate Administration

What we can do for you and your loved ones

Probate is a long, complex, drawn-out process that can surprise the heirs and beneficiaries if their departed loved one left no will or only a simple will – but no living trust.

Probate laws are complicated and one must adhere to them. As an Executor, you are legally responsible for meeting deadlines set by the court. Not meeting these deadlines can mean the issuance of a warrant for the Executor(s). Probate is also lengthy, taking from 9 to 18 months. More complicated estates, those that require ancillary probate in other states, have beneficiary challenges, or creditor claims can take years.

If you find yourself part of a Probate process, it is important that you seek the experienced help of a North Carolina attorney who can assume the responsibility of Executor, or be your coach to guide you through what is needed. We can be your guide. We’re here to help.

We had already established a trust with Jeffery and his staff but there is so much more to do with regards to estate planning. He and his staff eased me through the stages of all that is required to pull your life back together. They advised me in regard to medicare, social security and investment issues. Jeffery is patient and calm. He is very knowledgeable about special needs of disabled people which I needed for my family.
