Estates & Probate
SUCCESS FOR OUR CLIENTS SINCE 1976

We Can Assist With All Aspects of Estate Administration
There are few legal issues that are more difficult than handling the affairs of a loved one who has recently died. If you have been appointed as the personal representative of an estate, you are responsible for selling property, giving notice to creditors and filing the appropriate documents with the court. The personal representative also owes a duty of trust and good faith to the beneficiaries of the estate.

Although the estate administration process can be overwhelming, the law firm of Ferguson, Hayes, Hawkins & DeMay, PLLC, can assist you in properly managing and protecting the property of the estate. Our experienced attorneys provide guidance to clients in Concord and throughout North Carolina. We will listen fully to your concerns and provide the service that our clients need.
