About Us

Dedicated Legal Advocates at Your Service


Melvin D. Williamson, Esq., CPA

I’ve focused my practice on the areas of business law, estate planning, and probate since 1990. In addition to my 38 years of business and legal experience, I’m a certified public accountant (CPA) as well as a certified specialist in estate planning and probate law as designated by the South Carolina Supreme Court.

With an extensive background in both accounting and law, I have the education and training to offer you a unique perspective when handling the financial future of your family or business.

Over the years, I’ve learned that the best legal service relies on close, personal contact with clients. I’m easily accessible, and my office is easy to contact. My clients know that when they have financial and legal concerns, they can bring their problems to me, work out a solution, and let me do the rest.
