Frequently Asked Questions

A little unsure of what we do or how we operate? Here are some answers to some of the more common questions we are often asked.

How do I contact your office?

You can contact our office by phone or email.

By phone: Please call (843) 815-1570.

By email: Please fill out this linked intake call request form and submit it for our team’s review.

We will then contact you within two business days to review your needs and discuss the next steps for moving forward and an appointment with one of attorneys.

How can find out if I am eligible for your services?

Please review our current qualifying income guidelines to see if you may qualify for our services and then either email us or call us to begin the process of becoming a client.

What county do I have to be a resident of to be eligible?

To be eligible for our services, you must be a resident of one of the following counties: Beaufort, Hampton or Jasper and meet our qualifying income guidelines.

What types of law do you practice and what services do you offer?

We serve in the following areas of law: adoption, child custody, visitation, child support, divorce, name changes, simple consumer matters, eviction actions, lease termination, non-refund of security deposits, simple wills and probate.

Can I make a same day appointment?

No.  Due to limited resources, we typically do not take same-day appointments. However, certain emergencies, subject to approval by a Supervising Attorney and appointment availability, may be permissible in rare circumstances.

English is not my first language. Can you still help me?

Yes. During your initial call to our office please be sure to request our bilingual paralegal. Also, if you are pre-qualified for an initial appointment with one of our attorneys we will be sure to schedule it when our bilingual paralegal can be present at your meeting.

Can you refer me to an attorney if I do not qualify for your services?

Yes. While we cannot make recommendations as to the attorney you should hire, one of our volunteers or members of our legal team will provide you with a short list of names (based on your needs) if you do not qualify for our services. We also refer individuals to the South Carolina Lawyer Referral service and other nonprofit agencies appropriate for your needs.
