Welcome to my firm. I am a solo-practitioner attorney dedicated to assisting individuals in South Carolina with their estate planning needs. I specialize in providing comprehensive legal services for wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and health care directives. Estate planning is a crucial step in securing your legacy and ensuring your wishes are honored. With my expertise and personalized approach, I am here to guide you through the process and provide you with peace of mind.
A will is a fundamental document that allows you to outline your desires for the distribution of your assets after your passing. As your attorney, I will work closely with you to understand your specific wishes and craft a legally sound will that reflects your intentions. Trusts, on the other hand, provide added benefits such as avoiding probate and ensuring privacy. I will assist you in determining the appropriate type of trust for your situation and help you establish and manage it effectively.
Planning for incapacity is a crucial aspect of estate planning. Powers of attorney grant someone you trust the authority to make important financial and legal decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so. Health care directives, including living wills and health care powers of attorney, allow you to communicate your medical treatment preferences and designate a trusted individual to make health care decisions when you cannot. I will explain these documents in detail, customize them to your specific needs, and ensure they meet all legal requirements.
