Difficulties can easily arise between family members when faced with probate issues, while also grieving the death of their loved one. Katherine represents personal representatives and other family members with effectiveness, creative problem-solving, and compassion.
There is no time like the present for you to choose…who you want to make medical and financial decisions for you if you can’t, and to whom you want to leave your assets when you pass away.
If you are ready to discuss these or similar issues and consider options for action for yourself or a loved one, you may want to talk with an attorney and you are welcome to call me for a consultation appointment.
Estate Administration and Related Litigation
Katherine helps personal representatives navigate the estate administration and probate court process. She also represents personal representatives, trustees, beneficiaries, and other parties in probate court. She represents clients in amicable probate matters and in contested litigation.
Katherine is a Certified Circuit Court Mediator and can be chosen by the parties or appointed by the circuit or probate court in a case to help the people involved try to reach an agreement. In her role as mediator, Katherine does not have a client, but is a neutral facilitator helping the parties try to resolve their differences.
Estate Planning Services
Katherine crafts your documents based on your situation and choices, and with thorough legal research, drafting creativity, and careful preparation. While you can find certain documents online, such pre-made forms may not be legally compliant in South Carolina and they may not adequately address your and your family’s specific situation. You deserve to consult in-person with an attorney about questions, issues, and options you may not have considered.
Guardianships and Conservatorships
Katherine advises clients seeking to obtain guardianship or conservatorship authority from the probate court to help family members who are incapacitated. She also represents adults who are alleged to be incapacitated, advocating on their behalf for their wishes.
