Smooth, timely, and accurate… Thanks Eleanor Washburn

Randy Donley

My experience with both Dawn Hart and Eleanor Washburn are what I would expect from a professional law firm. I enjoyed working with both of them and would recommend them to my friends.

Donald Reinhart

Dawn and Eleanor were both extremely experienced, and they were able to walk us through the process so that we could understand it easily….

Philip Dillon

The estate plan prepared for us was extensive in scope far beyond what we expected. Needs we did not know we had were explained, covered, and included. The process was simple and not too time consuming. A very worthwhile experience. Thank you.

Martha Ferguson

Eleanor and Dawn made everything so easy and painless! They worked hard to accommodate our schedules and got things done for us very quickly. We so appreciate their efforts, kindness and expertise and absolutely would highly recommend them!


My wife and I recently moved to Charleston, SC from the Finger Lakes region of NYS. We needed to update our estate planning documents, wills/trusts, power of attorney, living will, etc. Our James Island CPA recommended Eleanor for the task. Eleanor provided us with good advice moving forward considering some recent developments in the family. In a couple of weeks, Eleanor and her legal assistant Dawn had all documents ready to go.
It was a pleasure working with Eleanor and Dawn. We will be checking in with them every few years for changes in the laws or in our personal situations.


Always felt very respected when answering our questions!
Initial contact with Dawn made me feel genuinely cared for and guided.
Thanks for user friendly atmosphere!!


Very professional and personable. Process was easy and efficient. Good experience – pleased with outcome. 5 Stars.


Eleanor Washburn was recommended to us by a good friend who had a great experience with her. My wife and I had the same experience and are very happy that we followed her advice. Eleanor is very personable, knowledgeable and professional. It was a pleasure working with her especially considering the emotional topics and decisions that we had to make. We highly recommend her!


Eleanor Washburn helped my husband with probate. She was reasonably priced and made the process much simpler for us. She was very accommodating in meeting us in the early evenings. I definitely recommend her services.


Eleanor Washburn came highly recommended by other attorneys in the surrounding areas. Her 25+ years of experience was also a draw. She was a phenomenal help to my siblings and I in a highly unanticipated estate case. We appreciated her up front, straight forward, & timely communication. She took the good days & the hard emotional days with streamlined professionalism. Though the other party was non-communicative, she stepped in and got things moving. Even her assistant, Dawn, was compassionate, kind, & helpful. I highly recommend!


Very efficient and easy to understand. Never rushed – excellent experience.


We needed our Trust documents updated after moving to South Carolina. They did a great job! Very friendly and understanding!


Great team, really made things easy for us!


Went above and beyond my expectations. Very well detail oriented. Highly recommend and will use again.


She is very informed, explained things clearly and just enjoyable to talk with and work with.


She knew exactly what we needed to do.

Brian and Kathy

Eleanor is an intelligent, skilled professional. Her knowledge of the law goes far beyond the average estate planning attorney – she understands how to apply that knowledge to a client’s particular situation to best achieve the client’s desired results. I recommend her without hesitation.


Eleanor Washburn is an excellent attorney and she has my highest recommendation!
