Proven advocate takes on probate and workers’ compensation cases
In Greenville, Easley, Pickens, Laurens, Greenwood, Spartanburg and Anderson counties, my firm handles a wide range of legal tasks relating to:
- Estate planning — Regardless of your financial status or the nature of your assets, I work closely with you to develop a complete estate planning program, which can include wills and trusts, powers of attorney and guardianship. For complex estates and simple wills, I find creative ways to preserve and transfer your assets.
- Trusts and estates — My trusts and estates work gives clients the ability to create and enforce legal instruments that truly reflect the intent of their creators. In situations where estate administration is relatively straightforward, or in matters involving potential litigation, I provide a thorough, honest analysis of the legal issues and press for an appropriate outcome.
- Elder law planning — Strategic elder law planning can give individuals and families the opportunity to address long-term care and other aspects of growing old. With my understanding of the relevant legal standards, I can show you how to maximize personal assets while maintaining access to all available government benefits.
