Compassionate Lawyer Serving Clients in Columbia and Many Other Areas in SC

Situations that require a lawyer are often as emotional as they are complex, and the work involved may feel overwhelming at times.  I understand that in these situations, you need a compassionate and patient professional to help you through the process.  I graduated from Southern Illinois University and The John Marshall Law School in Chicago before being admitted to the South Carolina Bar in 1985.  I have been an attorney in Columbia for more than 25 years and practiced in Lexington before that.  The primary focus of my practice is in the Family Court, and I have a special fondness for cases involving adoption of children.  I've been involved in more than 400 such cases including private placements, interstate placements, and step-parent adoptions.  I strive to provide a compassionate ear and knowledgeable guidance through every step of the process in any case I decide to take on, and I am readily available to answer your questions about your case.  My goal is to put your mind at ease as much as possible.

Areas of Practice

Family law encompasses a range of situations, and I have experience providing legal representation in most of those areas.  In addition to the many adoption cases I have been involved in, I also handle divorce and separation cases of all types.  I have experience in providing service for everything from an amicable separation to a complicated divorce requiring mediation for issues such as child custody and support, division of assets and debts, alimony, and more.  I also have experience preparing wills and probating estates.

Schedule a Consultation

If you are looking for an adoption lawyer to help you bring a child into your home or to handle the legal aspects of adopting a child available to be adopted, or if you need a lawyer to help you with other Family Court matters, or if you need a will or an estate probated, please feel free to contact me to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation.  To learn more, contact Paul A.
