Plan for Your Family’s Future With Estate Planning Services in North Carolina

The assets you’ve built up throughout your life can continue to support and benefit your family long after your passing. Estate planning is an essential part of protecting your assets and ensuring that your final wishes are respected. A comprehensive estate plan outlines exactly how you want your assets to be handled, protecting your family from difficult decisions and disputes. There are also financial benefits of estate planning; you may be able to limit tax implications and eliminate the need for probate.

At Goodwin Law & Mediation, we help clients achieve a number of goals through their estate plan. We’ll meet with you to discuss your specific goals and come up with a plan to accomplish them. Through your estate plan, you can:

  • Decide who will inherit your assets and when
  • Appoint a guardian or trustee to care for your minor children and handle their financial needs
  • Name an executor to manage your estate
  • Decide who will have financial or health care power of attorney if you become incapacitated
  • Protect assets from seizure by creditors
  • Avoid the probate process, saving your family time, money, and stress
  • Limit federal estate tax and North Carolina estate tax

Our goal is to build a trusting and lifelong relationship with our estate planning clients. Even after your initial documents are drafted, we understand that things change.

We work on a flat fee basis, making it easy to budget and giving you the freedom to ask questions without incurring extra legal fees.
