My estate law experience extends to planning, settlement, and dispute resolution.
Estate law is one area of the law that most overlook until they are forced to deal with it. I help you take a proactive approach to estate law issues while also making the process much easier by providing personal attention, friendly service, and detailed results. I accept estate law cases all over the U.S., including right here in the High Point, North Carolina area.
If you are new to estate law or lack a comprehensive plan up to this point, I begin the process by advising my clients to choose both a durable and healthcare power of attorney. These essential documents ensure that if you were ever no longer of sound mind, there would be no issues carrying out your wishes and plans. Following the creation of these documents, I can help you design a legally binding will that promotes your best interests after your death.
At the conclusion of the planning stage, I will remain available to you and the executor of your will to ensure your estate is settled according to your plans. I can also help you settle an estate if you are acting in an administrative role to handle issues related to debt collection, distribution of assets, filing probate paperwork, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Estate Law
There are many questions that people have about estate law. When you call on me at James M. Snow Law, you can be confident that I’ll give you accurate and sensible advice pertinent to your situation. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions I get about estate law:
Do I really need to know about estate law when I’m only 20? 30? 40?
The short answer is yes. The longer answer is that while you may not necessarily need a will, such as if you are just getting started and haven’t much in the way of assets yet or haven’t yet begun a family you want to protect, you should at least have a durable and healthcare power of attorney so your financial matters and medical care wishes will be carried out if you are unable to voice them.
Once I’ve created all the documents, do I ever need you again?
You should reach out to me whenever something major has changed in your life so I can go over your documents to see if anything needs to be revised. Marriage, divorce, birth or death of a child, death of an heir, change in financial assets or status, and other factors may necessitate a codicil to your will, for example.
Does estate law change?
Absolutely! Estate laws change on both a federal and state level more often than you think. This is one more reason why you should consider a regular assessment of your estate documents. In addition, if your documents were prepared in another state, contact me to see if they need to be revised now that you reside in the High Point, North Carolina area.
