Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Bill Alexander has practiced law for over 43 years in North Carolina and maintains the highest attorney ratings possible— ‘A-V Preeminent’ peer rating by Martindale-Hubbell and a “10-Superb Attorney” Avvo rating. He now manages an asset protection, estate and eldercare planning law practice as the founding attorney of W.G. Alexander & Associates, PLLC.

His law practice was heavily influenced by life circumstances; his older brother was severely injured, unconscious for two months and survived with traumatic brain injury. Hence Bill learned how to deal with special needs; eventually, he became his brother’s care manager and Trustee. He also managed the care and finances for an elderly family friend with severe dementia. When his Mother became frail, he managed her needs from independent living through two years of nursing facility care. Hence over time his estate planning and tax practice added elder law and special needs law. As a Veteran, he became a VA accredited advisor to help war period veterans and their families with long term care benefits.

Bill was named the Elder Law Attorney of the Year in 2011, 2016, and in 2018 by the NC Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA). He was awarded the Legion of Merit, the Distinguished Service Medal, and the Order of the Long Leaf Pine, the highest award given by the State of North Carolina; he is a 32º Scottish Rite Mason.

He is sought after as a speaker and provides advanced continuing education for Attorney’s, CPA’s, financial advisers, insurance agents, and health care professionals. He serves on the Roanoke Island Historical Association Endowment Board and manages the Percy W. & Elizabeth G. Meekins Charitable Trust, a foundation for the arts and education in Dare County, NC.

Bill hosts the radio show “Asset Protection Today” at 11am each Saturday morning on WPTF 680 AM.
