Resolving My Clients' Business Legal Needs So They Can Focus On Running and Growing Their Companies.Estate Planning, Probate, and Business AttorneyGood contracts spell out your rights and duties. A good contract helps avoid expensive lawsuits.
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.
