An Overview of the Carolina Estate Counsel Law Firm
Accessible To Our Clients
Carolina Estate Counsel is a law firm that prides itself on its attentiveness and reliability. We always strive to get to know our clients’ individual concerns so that we can address each client’s particular problems with a solution tailored to that individual. At Carolina Estate Counsel we ensure that we are accessible to our clients. We give our clients direct phone numbers that ring right to our desk or cell phone without screening calls through a secretary, receptionist, or automated phone system.
Active In Public Service
Our Law Firm does not bill you for every question, phone call, or e-mail that comes to us. In fact, we try to bill on a flat fee when feasible. We occasionally do pro bono service for indigent clients and participate in free legal clinics. Thank you to all of our clients who help fund our public service!
Since we often work with senior citizens, we often meet clients in their homes, assisted living or nursing facilities.
