Since 1974 I have served South Carolina's Lowcountry in transactions involving real estate, business, wills, trusts, and probate. Conveniently located in Summerville, SC, where Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties come together, most of my practice is in these counties, but occasionally work is undertaken in Calhoun, Colleton, and Orangeburg counties.

By limiting the subjects I deal with in my practice, I have acquired a greater knowledge and experience in these subjects than a typical general practitioner would. I receive a lot of referrals from general practitioners.
