Estate administration is the collection and distribution of a decedent’s property and payment of his or her debts, according to his or her will, or according to the intestate succession laws of North Carolina. Estate administration is within the jurisdiction of the Clerk of Superior Court in the county in which the decedent resided at the time of his or her death. The administration process is carried out by a personal representative of the decedent. The representative may be appointed by a will or by the Clerk if the decedent did not make a will.

Each step in the probate process is important to ensure that the assets are accounted for and approved by the Clerk. The firm is dedicated to the efficient, accurate, and timely administration of both simple and complex estates.

I had a consultation with Susan regarding my marriage that was toxic both for myself and my children. She listened and helped me see that things were even more abusive than I was even letting myself see. Even though I couldn't retain her she and Linda helped me find resources to help my situation. My battle isn't over by any means but I will forever be thankful that they helped me begin. Thank You
