Summary

At Jesson & Rains, PLLC, we are committed to providing personal and cost effective legal services for individuals and businesses in the greater Charlotte area. Jesson & Rains focuses on three primary areas of the law: estate planning, business, and construction. For our estate planning clients, we offer a thorough consultation to go over all assets and liabilities to provide an individualized plan that is right for you, including will drafting, trust drafting, powers of attorney, healthcare agent designation, and advanced healthcare directives (also known as a "living will"). Our attorneys also represent personal representatives during the estate administration process when their loved one has passed away, helping them to navigate the probate court process, which can be confusing and time consuming. Jesson & Rains is also a full-service business law firm. Edward and Kelly help businesses and non-profits form, organize, review and draft contracts, handle employment issues, collections, insurance disputes, and litigation, should the need arise. We represent clients involved in the construction industry, including both general and subcontractors, providing services such as contract review, drafting, and negotiations; consultations regarding bidding processes; collections, including the filing of mechanic’s liens; and litigation. We offer clients a wealth of legal experience typically found at big law firms while maintaining relationships with clients one finds only at smaller firms. We proudly serve Charlotte, Gastonia, and Concord, as well as other communities in Mecklenburg, Gaston, Lincoln, Iredell, Cabarrus, and Union counties. We look forward to working with you.
