About Jeremy

Practice areas
  1. Estate planning
    Estate planning is all about taking care of the people you love when you're no longer around. Without an estate plan, the result will almost certainly not be what you wanted. We help clients decide between wills or trusts, as well as preparing powers of attorney, medical powers of attorney, living wills, and other important documents.

    22 years

  2. Probate
    In probate, we help our clients ensure that their loved one's last wishes (expressed in their wills and related documents) are carried out. Many families seek our direction and counsel to ensure the process is as smooth as possible.

    22 years

  3. Business
    Your business is one of your biggest investments. We will be invested in your long term success. We believe good contracts and good legal planning will help our clients avoid costly lawsuits. Thus, we set up our clients' businesses as the right kind of entity, negotiate buy-sell agreement between owners, draft key contracts, advise on legal compliance, and help clients buy and sell businesses.

    22 years

  4. Contracts and agreements
    We protect our clients' interests by negotiating, drafting, and revising their contracts and agreement. We regularly handle a large range of business and commercial contracts and leases. We make sure key terms are addressed in different situations to protect and enhance our clients' legal rights. We work to be sure everyone understands the agreement because lawsuits are very expensive and uncertain. We also prepare terms to make it clear the legal rights and obligations

I started my law firm to put my prior experience to work for individuals, as well as small to mid-sized companies in the Charlotte and Cabarrus County area. I knew that my clients would benefit from a more flexible and personal style of legal representation, as well as the option for flat fee legal services rather than always having to pay by the hour.

 Before founding The Canipe Law Firm, PLLC, I was a partner at a large multi-state law firm where I helped lead their Business & Contract Law team.  I also handled cases in NC and SC and provided estate planning services.  I had also worked for a the legal department of a large bank and for a large business litigation law firm. 

 I wanted a different kind of firm with a relationship where my clients and I could know each other better and I could offer them legal advice more customized to their situations.  I wanted my law practice to be drive by the needs of my clients and how I can help them.

 I grew up in Catawba County, North Carolina and live in Charlotte with my wife and their two children.  Outside of work, I focus on his family and is an active member at Hickory Grove Baptist Church.  For several years, I worked with my wife teaching children’s Sunday School and the church’s annual Vacation Bible School. I also help  teach our adult Sunday School class and serve the members of the church as a deacon. I enjoy studying the Bible and discussing how to apply the Bible to everyday life, as I try to live out my faith. 

 I retain an avid interest in American history from my college days.  You can usually be sure that I am reading a few history books and working on a history research project.  I also greatly enjoy running, participating in local mud runs and playing pickup basketball with friends as part of my regular fitness routine.

Professional and Trustworthy
My wife and I hired Mr. Canipe to represent us in a contract dispute. Mr. Canipe was knowledgeable and helped us understand what to expect for process and outcome. I hope we do not need further legal representation, but we will seek Mr. Canipe's counsel first should we encounter any disputes in the future.

Great advice, thorough and timely
My wife and I were very pleased with the advice that Mr. Canipe provided related to wills, trusts, living wills, and powers of attorney. He made himself very available to us, and spent time ensuring we fully understood considerations and options for these important documents. We appreciated how thorough he was, and how quickly he responded to our needs.

Estate Settlement
During our family's difficult time, Jeremy was very knowledgeable, professional, supportive, flexible and extremely helpful with my Mother's estate settlement. He always returned phone calls and emails promptly and was available to meet on short notice when necessary. We were totally confident of his advice and handling of all the documents. Thank you Jeremy for making this an easy process for us!

An Attorney who knows his the legal in's and out's about business!
I had the privilege of first working with Attorney Jeremy Canipe back in 2016. From the moment we began he gave me a lot of education on how the process would go and even things to add to my business contracts in the future. I was very impressed in how he gave me frequent updates and itemized costs for each new tasks that was vital for a winning outcome. Jeremy even updated me with information from the other attorney that was working for the other party. In the past I have sat with other attorneys who weren't as detailed. However, he demonstrated his willingness to dot every "I" and cross every "T", all while being humble enough to listen to my ideas! Ultimately I trusted that he would provide the best course of action which I found to be true. The day of our hearing he was on time, asked the right questions, and delivered a dynamic display of his legal experience that solidified a victory for me! Since then, Jeremy took on another case for me that resulted in another victory. So moving forward I plan on making Jeremy my first call for my legal business matters. I highly recommend Jeremy Canipe!
