Charlotte and Fort Mill Estate Planning & Elder Law Firm

During these difficult times, the need for estate planning is all too real. Legal services have been deemed essential services in NC and SC. In both NC and SC, it is not possible to create a valid legal estate plan without witnesses and notary present to observe the signing of documents. 

In light of this, Monk Law Firm, PLLC is offering "drive-up signings." 

Our system during this time of social distancing is as follows: 

  1. Initial consultations by phone or computer; 
  2. Draft documents emailed to clients to review through our encrypted cloud based software;
  3. A follow-up conversation by phone or computer; 
  4. Final execution of documents done while the client remains in their car. 

We are trying to do our part to reduce contact and the spread of COVID-19 while balancing individual's right to legal representation. 

In addition to this new procedure:

  • Our staff is required to stay home at any sign of illness, and they will receive paid medical leave.
  • KIDS are welcome – we get it!!  With schools closed, we will be happy to provide your kids with individual coloring sheets, packets of crayons and some other takeaways to help keep your kids safe and entertained.

We hope that this pandemic will be over soon, but until then we will take whatever steps necessary to protect our clients and the Monk Law Firm, PLLC family.  If you have any questions for us, please call.
