Everett M. Bolton grew up running around the halls of Boxley, Bolton, Garber & Haywood, LLP  watching and experiencing his father and the other members of the Firm practice law in a caring and effective manner.  Those experiences inspired him to become an attorney and in 2005 he joined the Firm.  Everett has become a well known Estate Planning, Estate Administration and Guardianship attorney in Wake County.  He is also the primary partner at the Firm handling residential real estate transactions.

As one of the four Public Administrators in Wake County, Everett has earned the Courts’ trust as an attorney who is capable of handling Estates and Guardianships that the Clerk of Court must takeover.
