Estate Planning Delivered to You
What Is It?
We are a full service estate planning law firm based in West Columbia, Lexington County, South Carolina. We strive to prepare documents that protect you, your loved ones, and your last wishes in an accessible, affordable, and approachable manner.
What Do You Offer?
We offer preparation and signing of wills, Power of Attorney forms and Healthcare Power of Attorney forms, in-home, in-office, or in-wherever you are! We come to you.
How Does It Work?
Our process is three steps:
First, an introductory call where we discuss the types of documents that we offer and your unique needs. Based on the type of document, we will discuss specifics requirements for each (such as having full names for each person) and develop a plan that fits your needs. We will schedule a followup call during this meeting.
Second Call: During this call we will discuss the documents we have drafted for you. We will discuss any changes you would like to make, and confirm all the important things (think names, addresses) are correct. We will also schedule an in-person appointment where your documents will be completed.
Signing of documents: Now you’re ready to sign your documents. We will schedule an appointment to meet with you on your schedule, at a location that you choose.
Where Do We Sign the Documents?
This is completely up to you. We have met clients at their homes, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, their workplace, a local coffee shop. Clients are also welcome to come to our West Columbia, Lexington County, South Carolina location to complete their documents.
Can I Just Come to Your Office?
Can We Talk by Zoom Rather than On the Phone?
Certainly- our goal is to make the process easy and convenient.
What About Witnesses and Notaries?
Don’t sweat it! The Attorney can notarize the document. If you don’t have a friend, family member, coworker, or roommates who can be the witness, we can bring another staff member along.
How Is This Different than Those Legal Websites?
Making sure your property and family are protected when you pass away is one of most important things a person should do. Why trust this process to a website? Don’t zoom or rush through these important legal decisions. Willsonthego.com gives you the opportunity to work with a local Attorney who you will meet in person. You will have access to this Attorney by phone, email, and in-person throughout the process.
What Happens After I Sign the Documents?
Great question! Immediately after signed, the original will is given to the client along with a copy. No waiting! Power of Attorney forms and Healthcare Power of Attorney forms must be filed with the County where the client lives. You will be given a copy of the document immediately after signing, and the original will be delivered to you (either in person or mailed) to you as soon as it is filed and stamped with the County. Some counties allow same day filing, meaning you can have your filed document back within a few hours!
