Personal Injury

Cecelia Jones and Buddy Jones are the attorneys in the firm that help those who have been injured due to the negligence of others. Our attorneys can help you recover damages if you have been injured in any sort of accident, including injuries resulting from car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. Here are some reasons why you may need a personal injury attorney:

1. To help you navigate the legal process: Personal injury cases can be complex, and our experienced attorneys can guide you through the process and ensure your rights are protected.
2. To help you recover compensation: A personal injury attorney can help you pursue compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
3. To negotiate with insurance companies: Insurance companies are often more concerned with protecting their own profits than with fairly compensating injury victims. Our attorneys are experienced with negotiating with insurance companies on behalf of our clients to ensure a fair settlement is reached.
4. To represent you in court: If a settlement cannot be reached, our attorneys can represent you in court. In some cases, it may be necessary to bring in expert witnesses to support your claim. Our attorneys have access to a network of professionals who can provide testimony and other evidence to support your claim.

Estate Planning and Administration

Estate planning is the process of arranging and preparing for the management and distribution of your assets in the event of your death or incapacity. It involves creating a comprehensive plan that considers both your financial and personal goals, taking into account factors such as taxes, potential beneficiaries, and your final wishes. Estate planning typically involves creating a will, trusts, power of attorney, or advance health care directives. The goal of estate planning is to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes and in a manner that is both tax-efficient and efficient for your beneficiaries. Estate planning can also help to minimize conflict and confusion among your loved ones and provide peace of mind for both you and your family.

Estate administration refers to the process of managing the assets and liabilities of a deceased person. It involves collecting and distributing the assets of the estate, paying debts and taxes, and resolving any legal or administrative issues that may arise. The goal of estate administration is to ensure that the deceased person’s assets are distributed according to their wishes in a manner that complies with North Carolina law, and that their debts and taxes are paid in a timely and orderly manner.

Real Estate Transactions

Our attorneys are able to perform a variety of tasks to ensure that the transaction is legally binding and that the rights of our clients are protected. These tasks may include some or all of the following:

Reviewing Contracts: Attorneys review the purchase agreement and other contracts related to the transaction, ensuring that all terms are clear and legally binding. They can also make changes to the contracts if necessary.

Negotiating Terms: Attorneys can assist in negotiating the terms of the transaction, including the purchase price, closing date, and other conditions. They can also assist with resolving any disputes that may arise during the negotiation process.

Handling Closing Process: Attorneys are responsible for overseeing the closing process, including the transfer of the title, the payment of any taxes and fees, and the handling of any necessary paperwork.

Performing Title Searches: Our attorneys review the title report to ensure that the property has a clear title and that there are no liens or other issues that could affect the transfer of ownership.

Handling Escrow Accounts: Attorneys can assist with setting up an escrow account to hold any funds that are necessary for the transaction, such as the down payment, until the transaction is complete.

Civil Litigation

Civil litigation refers to a legal dispute between two or more parties that seek money damages or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions. It involves a court case in which one party sues another for a wrong that has been done, such as a breach of contract, unfair and deceptive trade practices, or property disputes. The process of civil litigation typically includes filing a complaint, serving the complaint on the defendant, discovery, motions and hearings, settlement negotiations, and trial, although some civil disputes can be resolved without ever stepping foot into a courtroom. The outcome of a civil litigation case is typically a monetary award or a court order directing the defendant to do or refrain from doing something. The goal of civil litigation is to provide a remedy for the harm that has been suffered by the plaintiff and to enforce the rights and obligations established by law.
