Jesson & Rains, PLLC
It is important to plan for the future, regardless of the size of your estate. Failing to plan for death means that state will choose how to distribute your assets. A will ensures that your property is disposed of based upon your wishes, and is it crucial to hire experienced attorneys to make sure your wishes are carried out. Even if you already have a will, you should consider updating it as you marry, divorce, have children, and increase or decrease your assets. In the event that you become incapacitated, you should consider designating a power of attorney or creating a living will (also known as an Advanced Health Care Directive) to ensure that your financial and medical wishes are carried out during the time of your incapacity.
Estate planning can be overwhelming. No matter the size of the estate, Jesson & Rains will treat you with professionalism and the utmost attention to detail. However, no client is the same, so we will tailor our services to fit your family’s special needs. We offer flat fee packages for drafting and executing estate planning documents, such as wills, trusts, power of attorneys, and advanced health care directives. Unlike other firms, we assist our estate planning clients with retitling their property to fund trusts or take advantage of other creditor protections.
We also represent personal representatives of the deceaseds’ estates. Navigating the probate court system and its many forms can be confusing and exhausting. Because of our experience, we work to quickly and efficiently assist family members in administering their loved one’s estate. We frequently assist out-of-state executor clients who need resident agents or other attorneys needing ancillary probate administration or real estate deeds recorded.
The lawyers at Jesson & Rains assist clients in Charlotte, Concord, and Gastonia, as well as other communities in Mecklenburg, Iredell, Union, Cabarrus, and Lincoln counties.
