A message from Helayne

We are elated to announce our FOURTH ANNUAL Super Lawyers SELECTION!

A message from Helayne

mybadge - 2024

After living with dementia for over 5 years, Mom succumbed and passed peacefully in her sleep and in her home, just as she intended. We are so grateful for all your support and compassion. We have the kindest clients any law practice could hope to have. Donations to the Dementia Alliance of North Carolina in the name of Linda Royce Levy in lieu of flowers would be so appreciated.
Helayne and family
