Bratt & Bratt, LC is moving! We are excited to announce that we are moving our office, effective November 28, 2023! We will be in the same building- 10 Hospital Center Common, Hilton Head, SC 29926- but will now be located on the Second Floor in Suite 400. Phone number, fax number, and e-mail addresses will all remain the same. Client meetings will remain by appointment, and will be available by telephone, video and in-person. Of course, the same personable and professional service will remain as well.
Our new website will be going live within the next several weeks to advise you of other firm updates.
Health Response Update
updated as of November 15, 2023
We remain aware that the corona virus, RSV, and whatever is yet to appear on our shores may constitute a greater health risk to our older clients, young children and infants of our clients and staff, and to those with existing underlying chronic problems. While we have not eliminated in-office conferences at this time, we encourage you, if you desire, to take advantage of our remote conference options. Likewise, while there is no masking requirement at this time, we do ask that you consider mask use for in person conferences if you have a fever or other troubling symptoms of illness.
As always, we wish the best for our clients, business associates, friends and their familiies. Entering into this Holiday Season, we hope you will all enjoy peace and goodwill, and avoid the violence and disruption which appears to be plaguing our Country and World.
In any case, please have a wonderful Thanksgiving, very Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukkah with your families and friends, and we extend our best wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year!
Welcome to Bratt & Bratt, LC- A Probate & Estate Planning Firm
We seek to resurrect the ideals of an earlier day, when attorneys were trusted advisors, legal counselors and often friends. We recognize that knowledge of the law alone, and the technical ability to draft complex documents, is not enough to assist our clients in planning for their later years, or in supporting them through the loss of a loved one.
Competence, compassion, integrity and respect are the cornerstones of the relationships we build with all of our clients.
Who We Are
Success born of experience: Thirty plus years of personal experience, and character three generations in the making.
What Makes Us Different
Bill Bratt is a third generation attorney, tracing back to a small town New Jersey practice established by his grandfather in the early 1900's. From an early age, he was immersed in the expectation that attorneys were held to a higher standard, and that the law was a calling to help and protect others, rather than a license to take advantage of them.
What We Offer
Our primary focus is essentially on two sides of one coin: First, whether called estate planning, elder law or succession planning, we assist you in creating a personalized plan for the protection and management of your assets should a time ever arise when you can no longer protect and manage them personally. After you are gone, your documents will meet the unique needs of your spouse and other loved ones. Your plan is individualized to your specific needs and circumstances rather than being a "one size fits all" Trust Agreement form. Second, after a loved one has died, we guide you through the estate or trust administration process, handling as much- or as little- as you desire in order to make this difficult time as painless and cost-effective as possible. Providing our clients with peace of mind is just as important to us as providing legal excellence.
In addition to our traditional, in-person services, we also offer an expedited, on-line service to assist you in resolving probate issues affecting South Carolina real estate owned by a non-resident decedent. Rapid, professional service at a surprisingly affordable cost will eliminate at least one major detail in handling a loved one's estate.
