Being from Georgia in need of an Estate Attorney in S.C., I turned to Google (against my better judgement), but I "lucked into" Gem McDowell!
QUALITY: Gem is extremely intelligent, well spoken (yet can come down to a layman's level to explain the "legaleze" of a concept). He is personable and compassionate; innovative in his thinking - ideas around the roadblocks, etc.
GOOD VALUE: I wouldn't say Gem's services "come cheap," but in legal work, I am looking for knowledge and best outcomes. The savings is in what he puts in your contract. He is worth every penny!
PROFESSIONL: Gem's understanding, interpretation and explanation of the law really impressed me. After the Estate work, I hired him to handle the sale of my company. I (and my buyer - a friend) were so confident in his personal integrity that we hired him to do both sides of the deal, and everyone is pleased with the outcome. (BTW, his staff is just as professional and helpful, filling in where qualified, to help save you money).
**RESPONSIVENESS - (stars for emphasis) Gem and his staff were so incredibly responsive to my phone calls, questions and needs. I was always stunned by how fast he responded: day and night and occasionally weekends! (Even a few calls while on vaca at Disneyworld).
Because of my personal situation, these 2 jobs were drawn out of over 8 months, and Gem hung in there patiently all that time, available whenever necessary.
Small staff, smart guy added up to the best of outcomes for me.
Gem and Jackie were diligent and answered my questions as I updated my estate planning along with planning a special needs trust for my son. I would highly recommend them for your estate planning needs.
Gem McDowell and his staff are first class and did a great job for my family! I would give him the highest reference for anyone/family looking for a corporate tax attorney or needing estate planning done in the state of South Carolina.
Gem McDowell law group has been extremely helpful with legalities around selling a family home. He and his professional associates have been very kind, knowledgeable, and patient concerning things we have had no idea about! Thanks to them for getting us further than we've ever been in this sale and their dedication to see it finalized !
We are extremely happy with the estate planning services provided by Gem and his wonderful team of professionals. They are all very knowledgeable, quick to respond to questions and concerns - an absolute pleasure to work with and especially on something so important. Happy to have found them!
