Summerville Estate Planning Attorney

Summerville is a town in Dorchester County that was originally a refuge for the inhabitants of the South Carolina Lowcountry in the late 1700s. During the summer months, plantation families along the coastal areas retreated to the higher elevation of the pine forest ridge that would one day become Summerville. Through the years the tiny forest colony became the permanent home of transplants from Charleston and beyond.

Today, Summerville continues to attract families, business owners, and military personnel searching for a better lifestyle than larger urban cities offer. And tourists have long flocked to Summerville from early spring through the summer to discover the wonders of nature under the sacred pines.

With a population approaching 50,000, the people of Summerville have needs and concerns similar to those of other Charleston residents -- raising families, running businesses, and planning for the future. When it comes to estate planning, many turn to Wiles Law Firm, LLC, a premier legal practice serving clients in Summerville, Charleston and throughout South Carolina.

When you consult us, we will take the time to understand your circumstances and tailor an estate plan to your unique objectives. Whether you need assistance planning a small estate or or designing an asset protection strategy, our legal team will help you make the best decisions about your future.

Estate Planning Services in Summerville, South Carolina

At Wiles Law Firm, LLC, our trust and estate lawyers routinely prepare a wide range of essential estate planning documents, including:

  • Last Will and Testament (will)
  • Durable Power of Attorney
  • Healthcare Proxy
  • Revocable Living Trust
  • Irrevocable Trust
  • Living Will
  • Guardianships

While estate planning can be complicated and confusing, we will take the stress out of the process and break it down into simple steps so that you are well-equipped to reach your goals. Although no two estates are alike, a well-conceived plan should consist of a will, a power of attorney, and healthcare proxy, at a minimum.

For those with more complex estates, we often recommend taking advantage of trusts, which can help to minimize estate taxes, avoid probate, protect assets, provide for loved ones, and leave a charitable legacy. Our services are not limited to drafting estate planning documents since we know that life is a journey and your needs and goals will inevitably change as time passes. This is why we provide ongoing counsel to align your estate plan with life’s transitions, from getting married and raising a family, to acquiring wealth and meeting the challenges of aging.

Summerville Asset Protection Attorneys

For those who have closely held businesses and professional practices, we can help to protect your business and personal assets from creditors’ claims and lawsuits. Our legal team can help explore all your asset protection options, such as forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC). The main benefit of an LLC is that it protects your business assets through limited liability, while also protecting your personal assets (e.g home, savings).

In addition, we also design business succession plans as part of a comprehensive estate planning strategy. Knowing that a small business cannot endure without a leader at the helm, we can help you choose a successor and create the necessary partnership and buy/sell agreements to ensure business continuity. Above all, we will always work to protect your interests.

Summerville Veterans Planning Attorneys

Summerville is not only home to military personnel, but to veterans as well, many of whom are disabled and have challenging medical and financial needs. The veterans planning attorneys at Wiles Law Firm, LLC can help you obtain vital benefits that are offered by the Veterans Administration, including:

  • Healthcare
  • Disability benefits
  • Aid and attendance
  • Insurance
  • Veterans pensions
  • Education and training
  • Career and employment
  • Mortgage and loans

As a former officer in the U.S. Army, Tripps Wiles is highly attuned to the needs of veterans and their families, and works with them to obtain the Veteran’s Benefits they have earned.
