I was referred to Mr. Meincke to represent me in an estate matter, specifically, a disputed will. It was an inherently unpleasant process, but having Mr. Meincke on my side made it downright tolerable. He answered my endless questions with patience, and always kept me informed about ongoing communications, etc. re the case. He was always well-prepared when we had to appear before the judge, and treated everyone – the court staff, opposing attorney, and the judge- with courtesy and respect. During the trial itself, I was truly impressed with Mr. Meincke’s skill and degree of preparedness. I knew I was in capable hands. He is a man of integrity, and he takes pride in his work. It’s nice when you can truly trust your attorney. I have never regretted my decision to hire Mr. Meincke. In fact, I’ve asked him to help me with some other legal matters. I wholeheartedly recommend him!
Randall (Randy) A. Meincke has been practicing law in Forsyth County since 1996, having moved here then from the City of Forsyth where he began his career. Mr. Meincke’s practice is totally focused on estate matters and litigation. Whether it is the preparation of a will, financial power of attorney, advance directive, trust, or other estate planning document, Mr. Meincke is well prepared to address those needs. In the event you have lost a member of your family, Mr. Meincke can also guide you through probate, the administration of the estate (where there is no will), and/or a year’s support proceeding.
