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 since 2004 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. I sell solar and management is really bad and I want to leave but still make sure I’m getting properly paid for my deals
A: You will have to speak with an employment lawyer and show them your full employment contract; any advice based on one clause of a contract is all but useless.
Q. I live on acre land for 12 years it's in my and brother name now brother trying to sell is he allowed too I verbaly told
A: Your brother can only sell what he owns, so if someone is willing to buy his interest, he can sell it, but he cannot sell your portion. Since he is a part owner, your brother can get a court-ordered sale in which the whole property would be sold. You need to speak with a local attorney for further assistance.
Q. How do I determine how the unsecured creditors are paid if there’s more debt than assets in NC small estate?
A: I don't know who told you that you do not have to publish a notice, but the notice is very important in estates with very little assets but lots of debt. The order in which you pay debts is determined by statute, and each class of debt is paid out pro-rata if there isn't enough to pay the debts completely. If you fail to notice creditors properly and pay out debts in an improper order, then the administrator can be in breach of their fiduciary duties.
