Guiding Families Through Change

At the center of every family law matter — is a family. If you are struggling with an emotional and stressful divorce, child-custody dispute, or another family-related legal issue, you need an experienced attorney who will protect your rights, educate you on your options and always keep your family’s best interests at the forefront.

At the law firm of Beverly K. Ballinger, P.A., we are committed to helping families navigate the divorce process and resolve difficult family law issues in a zealous, cost-effective and timely manner. Backed by more than 25 years of legal experience, our firm has considerable knowledge and experience in all areas of family law, and we have established a proven track record of success both in the courtroom and at the negotiating table. Located in Charleston, South Carolina, we represent clients in the Tri-County area and throughout the Lowcountry.

Exploring Negotiation, Mediation & Litigation

We understand the complex and emotional nature of family law, so we focus on providing clients with a steady hand and a clear head to help them through this difficult time. With each family we work with, we strive to minimize the conflict and work efficiently to streamline the legal process.

We are often able to assist clients in avoiding the uncertainty and expense of a courtroom battle by negotiating favorable out-of-court solutions through mediation and/or settlement. These methods minimize the emotional and financial burdens associated with litigation, and they allow the parties to maintain control of the outcome and protect their children from additional stress.

That said, we know how to be aggressive when circumstances demand it. If the other side is unwilling to agree to a fair settlement, we are always prepared to defend our clients’ best interests at trial. With an extensive background in commercial litigation as well as family law, attorney Beverly K. Ballinger is prepared to assist clients with even the most complicated family law issues, including hight net worth divorce, parental relocation, and contested child support issues.

AV Preeminent Rated Attorney

I walked into Beverly’s office on April 5, 2015 for a consultation, broken mentally and anxious to how I will begin again after 21 years of marriage.  I was spiritually led to her office and I planned to retain her expertise ten minutes into our conversation.  Keep in mind, I had already met with two other counsel, located in West Ashley and North Charleston, before I decided on Church Street.

I trusted Beverly’s many years of experience to resolve my issues, which she did with her female “pit bull” demeanor, as my ex-husband stated after being face-to-face at the negotiation table.  Beverly’s “kick – – – –  attitude” took down his lawyer; he was gracious enough to peacefully represent himself at the final hearing.

Beverly became my voice and secured my heart during my time of transition and renewal of my life.  She, along with her competent Legal Assistant, witnessed my life change from a low-level state employee to an Executive Director of a rewarding non-profit educational agency.  Both ladies celebrated my excitement with me during the early stage of my divorce proceedings.

I endorse Beverly Kay Ballinger as your Divorce Attorney, as she is a quiet storm you want to characterize you.  To that point, she left nothing on the table in my Separation and Property Settlement Agreement, which included a division of all assets.
