Hello, I’m Anne Marie. I’m a proud wife to my husband of almost 12 years and a busy mom of three energetic girls and a vast array of “fur babies.”
I have been drafting wills, trusts, powers of attorney and advance medical directives, etc., since joining the Air Force in 2007, and continue to do so as a reservist Judge Advocate General. I have always loved and appreciated being able to assist military members and their families by providing estate planning services and am truly thrilled to be able to bring my skills to my home state of South Carolina.
In speaking with my clients, I find the majority have never prepared a will or legally named a guardian for their minor children. Many believe they don’t have enough assets to warrant worrying about estate planning while others avoid it because they find it an emotionally difficult process. Some are concerned that the cost of an attorney’s services may not fit in their budget and almost everyone finds it hard to schedule the time to make it happen.
Having a family, career, and other obligations, I understand the growing demands on your time. Consider just getting ready to leave the house. Add in driving and waiting, finally speaking with an attorney and then driving home in traffic! (And that’s not including time to get kids ready and out the door!) Sometimes it’s just not possible to allocate 5 hours of your day to talk to an attorney. The mere logistics of taking time off and traveling to and from your appointment is exhausting. The web-based nature of my firm allows my clients to communicate with me at their convenience through a secure Internet web page. Additionally, since I don’t have costly office space to maintain, I am able to keep my overhead low and provide my clients high quality legal services at very reasonable rates.
If you want to consult on your own time with a dedicated, experienced attorney, I’d be honored to work with you. I look forward to creating an estate plan that provides you and your family peace of mind.
