In his bestselling book, The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz lays out a philosophy for living a better life that is entirely congruent with our values at Carolina Family Estate Planning:

  1. Be impeccable with your word.
  2. Don't take anything personally.
  3. Don't make assumptions.
  4. Always do your best.

In harmony with these principles, we follow up with our clients frequently during and after our time working with each other.

  • We want to make sure we have come through with the promises we've made,
  • We want to get our clients' unvarnished opinions about the quality of the work and service that we provide,
  • We do not attempt to read more into their responses than what they've told us, and
  • We want to do our best. Always.

With their permission, we have shared some of the feedback we've received from our clients. We hope it helps others overcome any fear and trepidation they may have about meeting with a law firm to help with their estate planning, estate settlement, or probate matter.

I learned a lot about things I never thought about (i.e., probate and taxes), the importance of pre-planning, short-term guardians to avoiding having my children placed in state custody.” -Kourtneye, Morrisville, NC
  • “Having the opportunity and pleasure to work with Jackie, has created nothing but positive influence in my clients and their families lives.

Mrs. Bedard's demeanor, objectiveness, and creativity are matched by few. What a team member!” - Adam, Raleigh, NC
