Estate Planning
Thomas was able to guide us making changing in our estate after moving here from AZ. He guided us and helped us ensure all our desires to protect our family and our property was done with care. He was detailed, informative and his staff was wonderful to work with. We had called several people before finding Thomas and his office did everything without needing 2 attorneys for various needs of our family! We are grateful

Estate Planning
Thomas and his partner Peter really made my wife and I feel comfortable during the estate planning process. The time they took getting to know us and the questions they asked made us feel like our trust and estate was 100% complete and concrete. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and valued our time. Nosal and Jeter made our experience as pleasant as it could possibly be.

Great review for Thomas Jeter for estate planning!
I live in NC but work in SC so was hoping to find an estate planning lawyer to help me write my will in NC and be located as close to work as possible so I didn’t have to miss too much work to keep any appointments. I couldn’t believe my luck to find Mr. Jeter who has an office in Fort Mill, SC and is also licensed to practice in NC! The first session was free as promised. I felt Mr. Jeter was engaged in the interaction and very interested in what I was looking to get out of the process. I decided to move forward with the estate planning package (my first in this state) and Mr. Jeter continued to be a pleasure to work with. He gave me great advice on what the consequences of some of my wishes would turn out to be like if written exactly as I was originally thinking, and how we could turn them into more appropriate documents to support the intent of what I was hoping to achieve with my estate. I was very involved and very detail-oriented in the process, and he was very accommodating with my questions and concerns and made any necessary changes until the package was better than I originally expected. There were legal documents I wasn’t even aware of from my previous lawyer and I appreciated that he included them in the package to be sure my wishes, and personal and financial welfare and property, are protected by the available law (whether I’m incapacitated or passed). Mr. Jeter’s office was on top of executing the documents, arranging our appointments, and very hospitable and pleasant. Given all the documents and work that went into my package, I also felt that the fee Mr. Jeter quoted in the beginning was reasonable and fair. I’m grateful to have found Mr. Jeter and would recommend him to anyone who needs to do estate planning in NC or SC.

Speeding Citation
I was driving through Charlotte (I-85) while on business; got nabbed in a speed trap in Gaston County. I did a thorough search of local attorney firms; Nosal & Jeter was the only firm to respond to my inquiries. They work quickly and easily (via email); very efficient operation. My citation was knocked down to Improper Equipment; meaning a non-moving violation, so no points. Save the time and effort and hire this firm if you have a similar issue. They're well worth the modest fee.

Traffic citation
Mr. Jeter was able to have my sons ticket dismissed. The traffic citation stated speed was greater than reasonable and prudent under conditions (rain), no accident. All it took was a few emails and they were always quick to answer all of my questions!

Will & POA for newly-married couple
My husband and I just got married a few months ago, and neither of us had a will. After reading the great reviews online, I contacted Nosal & Jeter via email on their site, and I heard back from them the next day. We scheduled an appointment and met with Mr. Jeter to review what we needed, and he had great knowledge and recommendations for our situation. They promptly sent over the documents for our review, and we scheduled another time to go back in and sign them. Mr. Jeter and the entire staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, especially considering we were a little out of our element!

Hired for an accident ticket
My experience with Nosal & Jeter, LLP was extremely pain-free, and easy going. The entire staff is knowledgeable and supportive. They reminded me of dates and deadlines several times, wether or not I needed the help. They listened to my concerns, and walked me through any and all options I had personally. I would recommend Nosal & Jeter for any need they can assist with, small or large.

Just completed estate planning with Mr. Jeter. Process was quick, efficient and friendly on all levels - from first interaction, to paralegal assistance, to completion. Rates were fair and availability was easy to come by.

Job well done!
We consulted with Thomas C. Jeter III for estate planning and redoing our will/testament and trust documents. We hired him after a short meeting. He was knowledgable, thorough, listened to our concerns and needs, explained the changes needed since we moved to NC from another state and we needed to redo the documents. He made appropriate recommendations and finalized our documents quickly and without flaws. He was personable and certainly professional. The cost was reasonable and the documents were completed quickly. He gained our trust and respect.

Speeding ticket
I used Nosal and Jeter for a speeding ticket. THomas made the whole process very easy and helped me get the ticket dismissed. He was easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend.
Posted by Linda | December 29, 2013
Very highly recommended
As a current client I can say that Mr. Jeter is one of the finest lawyers I have ever met. The most important thing I can mention is Mr. Jeter is honest and has integrity. He has worked with me for over a year and a half on an estate case that is extremely dense and complicated and his knowledge and understanding of the law amazes me. He is very wise for his years and has been patient, talked with me in terms I can understand, and has always been available when I have questions. I have never been involved in a law suit and it has been quite a learning experience for me. Mr. Jeter has been trustworthy, advised me well, and been very professional. I feel very blessed to have him as my counsel. If you have a need for an attorney, want the best representation for your case, then I highly recommend Mr. Jeter and his firm.

Family Estate - Highly Recommend
I had previously used Nosal & Jeter when I unfortunately received a speeding ticket while passing through North Carolina. A friend of mine, whose mother lives in NC, was having some issues with some complicated matters relating to her estate planning. I recommended Nosal & Jeter based on their professional handling of my speeding ticket. Not only did they handle my speeding ticket in a way that was great, but then handled the complicated estate issues for my friends mother in way that was actually very impressive. My friend says he owes me dinner the next five times he sees me. Not sure if my friend will come through with the dinners, but Nosal & Jeter will definitely come through with whatever you need. For whatever its worth, my friend dealt with Thomas, not sure how many other lawyers they have, but try and get Thomas.

This is our second experience with Thomas Jeter--he is accessible, knowledgeable, professional and best of all--got us results for a SC speeding ticket. I would recommend this firm to anyone who wants to be in capable and trustworthy hands. One more thing: Very satisfactory fees. Thank you!
