Estate Planning

Finding a qualified professional is the first step in Estate Planning. At Joye, Nappier, Risher & Hardin we listen to you and will help you find a plan that works for you and your family. Using an Estate Planning Attorney will give you the assurance that your intentions will be honored.


A Last Will & Testament, if drafted properly, is an iron clad document in a court of law. A will ensures that your wishes will be carried out after you die. Use an attorney such as Wendy Hardin or Don Risher who knows the laws of South Carolina and probate court to give you peace of mind when planning this big step.


There are two kinds of trusts – revocable and irrevocable. A revocable trust is set up to avoid probate and to protect your privacy and that of your beneficiaries when you pass. This type of trust can be changed or modified at any time during your lifetime. An irrevocable trust cannot be changed once it is signed. The benefits of setting up an irrevocable trust are estate tax reduction and asset protection.

Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney is a document that grants a person, the agent, legal rights to act in the principles name. Powers of Attorney can be used for real estate transactions, stock transactions, or during an illness or incapacitation.

A Health Care Power of Attorney is a document that summarizes the wishes of a person in case of an illness or injury. It outlines how a person wishes to be taken care of at the end of their life. It answers the questions of whether or not a person should be resuscitated, and will life support be used.

Estate Planning documents vary from state to state, and it's important that you use a local Myrtle Beach attorney to help you with this.
