Skilled Guidance With Estate Planning And Administration

Having a complete, thoroughly prepared estate plan may be the single greatest gift you could leave for your family. Not only does it allow you to clearly communicate your wishes with regard to how you want your property distributed upon your passing, it also gives you the opportunity to give proper authority to those people you want making decisions on your behalf should you become unable to make them on your own.

No matter what stage of life you may be in, everyone should have at least a last will and testament, a durable power of attorney, a health care power of attorney and an advance health care directive, also known as a living will. While many people might find the idea of beginning this process overwhelming, an experienced North Carolina/South Carolina will and trust attorney can help you navigate the process and develop a solution designed specifically to accommodate your needs.
