Bankruptcy/Alternatives to Bankruptcy

We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code. Filing for bankruptcy may not always be your best option. When layoffs, medical emergencies, or divorces occur and your financial situation looks bleak, let our team show you options or work with creditors on your behalf to ease the stress. Calling a bankruptcy lawyer doesn’t have to be difficult; we make sure you understand your options before a decision is made about declaring bankruptcy.

Elder Law

As the size of the senior population grows, the need for outstanding legal representation in the areas of Medicaid/ Medicare eligibility and appeals, power of attorney, health proxies, Social Security law, long-term care and asset preservation planning grows as well. Our staff will work with you to preserve family assets and ensure quality of life protections. We will also fight for the rights of the elderly in nursing home settings, from regulation enforcement to elder abuse cases.

Employment

The employer-employee relationship is an important and complex business relationship that does not always unfold as planned. We counsel individuals through employment related concerns and represent employees in state and federal court on claims of statutory discrimination, retaliation, failure to accommodate, wrongful termination, breach of contract, and other employment law claims. Oliver & Cheek, PLLC attorneys have successfully represented clients before state and federal courts, the North Carolina Employment Securities Commission, the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and in the alternative dispute resolution process to ensure employers uphold their responsibilities to their employees.

Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts, and Probate

Do you have an updated will? Oliver & Cheek, PLLC will help you create or update this essential estate planning tool to ensure the family you leave behind is adequately cared for. Our staff can also aid in the creation of trusts to hold assets for beneficiaries or represent your interests during probate proceedings if they should arise.

Negotiation and Drafting

A contract is simply an agreement by two parties in which one offers to do—or refrain from doing—something in exchange for a form of compensation. Our attorneys can partner with you to create, modify, and review a well-drafted contract to protect your interests in all types of transactions. An expertly-written contract will keep you out of court and withstand any possible future legal challenges.
