Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning and Administration

We work with you to protect, preserve, manage and disburse property, according to your wishes.

The attorneys of The Terry Law Firm, PLLC have advised individuals and families regarding their wills, trusts, estate planning and estate/trust administration for almost forty years. Our extensive knowledge and experience can help you create an estate plan that will best suit your needs. We take into account your goals and objectives and consider tax issues and tax planning, where appropriate.

We can’t stress how important planning is because if a North Carolina resident dies without a Will, the North Carolina Intestate Succession Law provides for the disposition of his/her estate. We think you should decide how your estate should be distributed, not the state legislature.

A well drafted and thoughtfully considered estate plan can help you accomplish one or more of the following objectives:

We can help provide the peace of mind that knowing one’s affairs are in order. We’ll guide you through a variety of estate planning tools and options, including wills, living wills, trusts, life insurance trusts, charitable trusts, special needs trusts, durable financial powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney and tax planning.

Trust and Estate Administration

Our attorneys can help you administer and settle the estate after the loss of a loved one. We will do so in a professional, sensitive and cost-effective manner. We often work with individuals who live out of the state, but whose relatives left assets in North Carolina.
