Carter & Carter represents clients who are serving as the personal representative of a decedent, whether as executor, executrix, administrator or administratrix. We are well-acquainted with the several different statutory processes for estate administration, and therefore we are able to clearly explain a client’s different choices as well as the probable benefits and risks associated with each path. Our experience with debtor-creditor law enables us to make sure that invalid claims against the estate are rejected, which maximizes the assets available for distribution to beneficiaries.
We routinely advise our Wilmington and North Carolina clients regarding various estate planning strategies that may benefit them. We draft wills, trust agreements, and other documents to make sure our clients’ wishes and preferences are clearly expressed and successfully implemented.
