PRACTICE AREAS

REAL ESTATE

    We have been closing real estate purchases and refinances for over 45 years, and have completed thousands of real estate closings, with more closing each week.  We handle closings in North & South Carolina in Gaston, Mecklenburg, Lincoln, Catawba, Cleveland, York, and the surrounding counties- and even close beach properties in Horry or Georgetown, too!  We handle both residential and commercial sales and refinances-- ranging from vacant residential lots to multi-million dollar commercial or industrial complexes.  
     We prepare deeds, easements, rights of way, offers to purchase and contract, promissory notes, deeds of trust, and all other required documents for loan closings or cash closings.  We work with all lenders, including VA/FHA/USDA loans as well as conventional, and are also experienced with seller-financed closings and assisting investors with purchasing foreclosed or REO properties.  Our attorneys are approved by Chicago Title, Investors, Stewart, Fidelity, Commonwealth, and many other title insurance companies.  

      In addition, we are regularly hired by other attorneys to search titles for their upcoming closings.  We are known for our attention to detail and thoroughness in performing complex, full searches and frequently receive referrals in both North & South Carolina.
      Please give us a call with any questions, and we would be glad to discuss our fees.  We want to handle your next closing or title search!

ELDER LAW: WILLS, TRUSTS, & POWERS OF ATTORNEY

     Proper estate planning is important to protect your assets and maximize your estate for the benefit of your family.  Did you know that if you do not have a Will, that the State decides what happens to your property when you pass away?  Often times this can lead to unintended consequences.  
      Our attorneys are experienced with preparing Wills, Trusts, Durable Business Powers of Attorney, Healthcare Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, and other documents necessary for estate planning.  Our strength is in listening to the needs of our clients and drafting appropriate documents tailored to their individual interests, needs, and goals.  Since we also practice probate estates, we know how to properly plan in order to minimize hassle, confusion, and expense for your family when the time comes.  
       Please call us with any questions, and we would be glad to make you an appointment with one of our attorneys to discuss your estate planning needs.

PROBATE ESTATES

       For many families, administering an estate when a loved one dies can be confusing and burdensome.  Our caring attorneys and paralegals are experienced with handling probate estates throughout North Carolina, including finding and safeguarding assets, preparing required filings, overseeing distributions, dealing with banks, and transferring titles with the DMV.  We work with executors and beneficiaries every step of the way to be sure that the estate is handled properly and in a timely manner.  
      If your spouse, parent, or other family member or friend has passed away, please give us a call to make an appointment with one of our attorneys to discuss your next steps.
