Biography

I am a local attorney with a focus on real estate, landlord-tenant, and wills and estates. But I can and will take any matter that arises should you need me, if I do not feel comfortable in handling your matter I will do my best to find you a lawyer that is.

I live in Yadkin County and am raising my family here. I have served in the Army for the past 16 years and have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan during my time in service. After completing my active service I attended UNC-Greensboro and then Wake Forest School of Law, and have continued to serve as a member of the Army Reserves.

Legal Answers
Q. If I own a home that I paid the monthly mortgage payment directly to the owner and the owner was a close friend that die
A: Generally speaking, probate matters do not actually go to court like you may be thinking. The clerk's office will handle much of the estate and potentially the estate will hire a lawyer to assist them. What you need to do is find out who the new owner(s) of the property are and where to send your checks going forward.
Q. What steps must be taken to get conservatorship or guardianship over a person (adult) with mental illness?
A: Once you start the guardianship process, a guardian ad litem (GAL) will be appointed. They should be able to access some of these records; I highly advise that you get legal help in this matter, not just for the initial hearing but also for the subsequent duties that fall on the appointed guardian.
Q. If a will leaves you "each and every item of my property and estate, whether real, personal or mixed" and further states
A: I would have to review both the will and the related documents to give specific advice as to what needed to be listed. But generally speaking if the property is passing through the estate then it needs to be on the inventory.
