Estate Planning/Administration

The attorneys at Alexander, Miller, Schupp & Davis provide a full range of estate planning and administration services. We work closely with you and your family to draft your wills, powers of attorney, and trust agreements. We consider it an honor to help people plan for the future support and care of loved ones.

On both a personal and professional level, we understand just how important it is to have an estate plan in place. Whether you are making plans for your young family or are ensuring the proper distribution of substantial assets, we will guide you through the essential questions for your specific circumstances. We are not a firm that churns out estate plans on fancy paper or in glossy notebooks. We listen closely to you and craft an estate plan that is specific to your and your family’s needs. Our attorneys have experience creating estate plans for estates that exceed the Unified Credit amount and for families with special needs.

In the event that you have lost a loved one, we remain by your family’s side. We can assist you in probating the estate and/or administering a trust. These are issues we have each experienced at work and in our personal lives, so we know it can be stressful and confusing and can create tension among loved ones. We use both compassion and professionalism to assist you in an emotional time for your family and can handle all of the details to wind up the estate.

You can register your Advance Health Care Directives (including a Healthcare Power of Attorney, a Declaration of a Desire for a Natural Death, Advance Instruction for Mental Health Treatment; or Declaration of an Anatomical Gift) with the North Carolina Secretary of State to be stored on a secure online database for 24/7 viewing and access.
