An Experienced Divorce Lawyer that you can trust.

Elizabeth Hight

Your divorce will be like no other experience in your life.

I know. I am divorced.

Divorce can be a heart-rending process. You may feel like your identity is being stripped away from you. Your dreams for the future may be vanishing before your eyes as you face financial devastation.

While you may feel like you have lost all power over your life, it doesn’t have to be that way. I’m here to help you – to help you stop focusing on the unfairness of what has happened to you and to help you start building a better future for you and your children.

As a long-time resident of Summerville, I know the people and resources of our community. They have helped me as a single Mother and they will help you. I have only left Summerville to attend college at the University of Georgia, graduate school at Georgia Tech, and law school at Georgia State University.

I have focused my entire legal career on helping people – like you – who are in pain. I intentionally limit my law practice to family law matters because that is where the need is the greatest. Through extensive study, I have learned the in’s and out’s of South Carolina’s complex divorce, property division, alimony, child custody, and child support laws.

Child custody cases are a particular passion of mine. In the past, our family court judges have appointed me to serve as a Guardian Ad Litem (“GAL”) in cases involving child custody disputes. As a GAL, I have investigated and reported to the family court as a neutral third party on factors that determined the outcome in those child custody cases. Our judges asked me to act as the GAL because of my training and experience, as well as my commitment to the best interests of children.

I am here to listen and help you. Please click here to schedule a day and time for your free, initial consultation.

“I went to Elizabeth with help for a modification of child support. She answered all of my questions and helped me understand in layman’s terms how the process works. Although, I was not able to use her, as I had to go through a different state, she gave me advice on if I were to try to move it to SC and how the process would work. She was very empathetic, which is a trait that is important when dealing with family matters. Empathetic, but not to be confused with “too nice.” I trust that she would fight for my needs and rights if I were to decide to move my case to SC. If I choose to move it, she is the only lawyer I would trust.”
