Preventive Law

Preventive LawNo one gets excited about becoming involved in a lawsuit . . . it’s stressful, costs a lot of money, and takes up a lot of time that should be spent doing other things. That’s why preventative law is so important. At Yelton, Farfour & Bridges in Shelby, North Carolina, we believe preventing legal issues from happening in the first place is often the best way to handle them. We strive to educate our clients about common causes of legal problems and how to avoid them—preventing unnecessary stress and saving you time and money.

You might think of preventative law in a similar way to preventative medicine. You immunize your children to prevent them from getting harmful diseases, you go to the doctor each year to get a flu shot, and you do your best to exercise and eat well, all of which can be considered examples of preventative medicine. Preventative law is the immunizations, flu shots, exercise, and nutrition of the legal world.

Preventative law can play an important role in all aspects of your life. For example,

For your family:

  • Wills, living wills & powers of attorney
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Legal guardianship of children
  • Family trusts

For your business:

  • Business formation documents & legal entity formation
  • Shareholder agreements & director resolutions
  • Investor documents
  • Copyrights, trademarks & branding
