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
238 Questions Answered
Q. If a beneficiary is married and dies before they inherite, does the spouse inherite. They have no children.
A: Depends on how close together the deaths are, and whether or not wills are in place for both parties. Bring everything to a local estate planning attorney and ask them for their opinion on how to proceed.
Q. In 2017 owner financing documents were drawn up for of property. Both Grantors passed away. Now what happens?
A: Without seeing the recorded documents, I couldn't give any opinion as to what could happen. But I suspect that they cannot void the contract, and your husband can refinance. My advice is to have a local real estate attorney look at the documents and give you a formal opinion.
Q. I am an Executrix over my brother’s will but he resided in Virginia and I live here in North Carolina.
A: You will likely have to post this question in the Virginia section of this site to get an answer. While some attorneys here may be authorized to practice law in both states most are NC only.
