Charlotte Estate Planning Lawyer

Serving Individuals, Families & Businesses in Raleigh & Wilson, NC

At Hicks-Guinn Law, we are dedicated to helping you protect your assets, your legacy, your preferences and your wishes regarding many aspects of your life both before and after your passing. 

While most of us would prefer not to think about how to prepare for the transfer of our estates, doing so can bring peace of mind to you and your family. 

Estate planning can clarify your wishes and the legal process of passing on your legacy at a time when your family will likely need it the most. Planning is not just for the very wealthy or the very old. Anyone who owns anything has an “estate.” Furthermore, the future can be uncertain for anyone at any age, reinforcing the need for detailed estate plans.

Our Legal Services in Charlotte, Raleigh & Wilson 

Estate planning typically includes the bequest of assets to heirs and the settlement of estate taxes. It also includes decisions regarding personal matters, such as who will care for minor children or incapacitated family members. 

This type of planning is vital because it provides a clear directive of your wishes, ensuring that your loved ones are provided for in the best way possible and avoiding unnecessary legal complications or disputes. 

Furthermore, it can minimize the taxes that may erode the estate, allowing more of your assets to benefit your heirs. To help you navigate this complex process, Hicks-Guinn Law offers a comprehensive range of estate planning services, including using wills and trusts, designating guardianships, business succession planning and estate administration through probate and trust administration. 

Personalized Client-Focused Service

We are dedicated to providing a personal touch and empathy to clients. Our attorney meets clients where needed, often traveling to homes and hospitals to counsel individuals and families all over North Carolina. 

Attorney Robyn Hicks-Guinn brings a depth of knowledge in this legal field to you based on both personal and professional experience. Her legal understanding has led to her work as a Continuing Legal Education instructor in estate planning for other attorneys. 

We understand that everyone has unique needs and goals for their assets and loved ones. As such, we take the time to get to know you personally to develop a tailored plan that meets your specific needs. We take a holistic approach to estate planning, considering not only financial matters but also personal and family dynamics. This enables us to create a comprehensive plan that not only protects your assets but also provides for the emotional and personal well-being of your loved ones. 

We understand that estate planning can be a sensitive and daunting process. That's why we strive to make it as easy and stress-free as possible. Our team is committed to providing compassionate and professional guidance every step of the way, from creating a plan to updating it as needed.
