Estate Planning

South Carolina Wills and Trusts Attorneys

Horger & Connor provides advice and a variety of estate-planning services for individuals and closely held companies. When drafting a will or trust, our attorneys are sensitive to the impact our services will have on our client's emotional and economic well-being. Horger & Connor has the experience and resources to handle estate planning on behalf of those with large and complex estates, those with special situations, and those with modest estates.

When helping a client create a will or trust fund, we work to achieve a solution that will effectively protect that client's interests to ensure his or her intentions will be carried out. Our attorneys carefully listen, prepare and have extensive attention to detail. Contact our estate-planning attorneys by e-mail or call (803) 531-1700 to speak with one of our attorneys.

Establish a Health Care Directive

Health care directives are also known as living wills. These documents describe how you would wish to be treated in certain medical situations. Living wills can discuss your plan for being kept alive via artificial means, or appoint someone to make that decision for you in the event you are incapacitated.

South Carolina Estate-Planning Services

Our attorneys are prepared to assist local and out-of-state clients with a full range of estate-planning services, including:

  • Preparation of wills, community property agreements and powers of attorney
  • Drafting trusts, including testamentary trusts, trusts for minors, disability trusts, and living trusts
  • Assigning guardianships
  • Establishing a personal representative to pursue a wrongful death claim
  • Business succession
  • Probate and estate administration
  • Probate litigation, including will contests and trust contests

Our attorneys are also skilled probate litigators who will represent you with any probate law concerns in court.

If you do not have a large estate, you may be considering drafting your own will, health care directive or durable power of attorney. These are documents that every adult should have in place, but we urge you to reconsider creating them alone. Our lawyers have seen sad situations where a document was missing essential elements, leaving the estate at risk. If you would like to discuss your estate-planning needs with one of our attorneys, please contact us.
