Who we are

Charlotte Legal Services was established in 1982 by Cathleen Kahler. She works tirelessly for new and past clients to make sure that they are connected to the appropriate attorney to handle their matters efficiently and quickly.

Last Will & Testament

This document explains how you would like your assets to be distributed upon your passing. This can also include information regarding your burial wishes, guardianship for your children, as well as setting up a Trust for underage beneficiaries.

Health Care Power of Attorney

While spouses and family members are sometimes consulted when it comes to making medical decisions for someone, this is not always the case. Having a Health Care Power of Attorney will allow medical professionals to talk directly to someone you choose as if they were you and let them make any important decisions regarding your well-being when you aren’t able to make those decisions yourself.

Durable Power of Attorney

There are different types of Powers of Attorney, but the Durable Power of Attorney is an important one to have in that it survives your incapacitation. This allows individuals of your choice to make legal and financial decisions as if they were you, in accordance with your wishes.

Medical Directives

These documents are generally done along with a Health Care Power of Attorney. While that document gives an individual the authority to make medical decisions for you, this document limits that authority to specific matters.

Living Will

This document is sometimes confused with a DNR order. Unlike a DNR, a Living Will states that if you were to become comatose or to be in a similar unconscious situation and show no signs of improvement, you would like all life-prolonging measures to stop. This document is done so that this very hard choice is not placed on a loved one.

Special Needs Trusts

There are many different reasons someone would need trust. This can range from setting up a Special Needs Trust for someone who needs to have their assets held by another so as not to interfere with their benefits to a Revocable Living Trust that allows families to pass their assets quickly and easily to the intended beneficiaries.
