South Carolina Wills and Estates Lawyers
Proffitt & Cox provides legal services in the areas of estate planning and probate.
Our Columbia estate planning lawyers can assist you with organizing your affairs so that you and your family will be prepared in the event of a disabling injury, terminal illness, or mental health condition that prevents you from being able to handle your own financial affairs or medical decisions. We also can work with you to prepare a Will directing how your property will be managed and distributed following your death. Having an updated, well drafted, and properly executed Will is vital in order to make sure that your wishes are carried out for the disposition of your property.
Our estate planning attorneys will meet with you and help you make decisions about these important issues. We will then prepare the documents necessary to implement the plan that we develop together. We can draft necessary documents including:
- Living Wills
- Power of Attorney
- Healthcare Power of Attorney
We also assist families that need an estate lawyer to probate the estate of a deceased family member. Our Columbia probate lawyers help take the confusion and stress out of dealing with the probate process. We guide you through the steps required by law in order to probate an estate including providing the required notices to potential heirs and creditors, inventorying the estate assets, filing of necessary accountings with the probate court, and final distribution of the estate assets. Our probate lawyers provide professional and compassionate representation during the difficult process of concluding the affairs of a deceased loved one.
