Personal and Professional Estate Planning Services from a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist 

Estate planning can be a complex task if you have a lot of assets, but this is specifically why you should consider taking the steps needed to protect and take care of your property and your heirs. Understanding how estate planning works and navigating the estate planning process on your own can be confusing and frustrating. 

Let our estate planning lawyers create your formal estate plan. Our experienced estate planning law firm can give you the proper legal guidance. W. Woods Doster has been certified for 25 years as a certified specialist in estate planning and probate law, and he specializes in wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and the process of management and transfer of wealth from one generation to the next. 

  • Wills, Trusts, and Powers of Attorney. We can help document your choices on distribution of your property (wills); where to hold your property until an appropriate time of transfer (trusts); and, put a plan in place for someone to act on your behalf in the event you are unable to do so (powers of attorney).
  • Estate Administration of decedents and incompetents. You will want the help of a caring, local law firm to navigate the requirements of managing the affairs of a person deemed incompetent by the court or of a decedent’s estate in North Carolina. 
  • Incompetency and Guardianships. Through good estate planning we can ensure you have a plan for yourself if you become incapacitated and can no longer make decisions. We can also help you in the case you need to petition the court for guardianship of a loved one.
  • Special Needs Planning. Ease your worries about your child or grandchild who is unable to care for themselves. Let us create a special needs trust to designate a trustee to protect assets you set aside specifically for the child. 

You have worked hard to provide for you and your family, so let us do the work to make sure they are protected when you are gone.
