Pam’s experience in the legal field spans almost two decades. Pam is a retired probate specialist with 17 years of court experience, and she has been a paralegal for close to two years. As a paralegal, Pam drafts correspondence, petitions, motions, orders and deeds for filing with the court. In addition, she handles payroll for clients and staff, manages accounts payable and receivable, and assists the attorney in estate administration consultations.
After graduating from high school and attending King’s Business College in Raleigh, NC, Pam was immediately drawn to this area of law. As a deputy clerk and now as a paralegal, she is prepared to assist families in getting through the difficult process of losing their loved ones and in planning for their future in estate planning. It is through these experiences that Pam believes that she has been able to live her life’s purpose.
