A major part of law is about property – how to acquire it, and how to pass it on when we are gone.  For this reason, an important part of Everett, Womble & Lawrence, LLP involves estate planning.

We provide a personalized approach to each client seeking to protect and enhance their estates for themselves and their beneficiaries.  We listen for our clients’ needs and wishes, evaluating issues related to estate and gift planning, fiduciary selection, transfers of family businesses, life insurance, retirement planning, charitable giving, health care, education funding, and gift techniques.  In addition, we provide compassionate personal support and counsel in the settlement and administration of estates.  Allow Everett, Womble & Lawrence to assist you with:

  • Durable Power of Attorney
  • Estate Administration
  • Heath Care Power of Attorney
  • Incompetency and Guardianship

  • Wills


Our firm is also known throughout North Carolina for the effectiveness of the wills it helps clients create.  If you die without a will, you are not doing your loved ones a favor.  If your existing will has grown stale, let us help you update it.

We also work with clients to create clear, followable powers of attorney, delegating decision-making authority for your finances and your medical decisions.

If you have any special problems you wish to address in your estate, talk to us about the array of powerful trusts we can use to protect your interests.

We are also skilled at probate administration and in resolving disputes that arise from the probate process.
