Beaufort Elementary | Career Day

On Friday April 3rd, we had the honor and pleasure of being asked to participate in Beaufort Elementary School’s Career Day. We were met by a highly enthusiastic group of 4th and 5th graders with who we thoroughly enjoyed spending our afternoon. The students asked some truly thought provoking questions and we can tell you that the future is a bright one for this group.

Big thanks to Beaufort Elementary School for having us, and we are already looking forward to the chance to participate again next year.


I had a very detailed custody matter. It was scheduled for an emergency hearing and on an expedited basis. Addison jumped right on the case even though it was last minute and would require at least 4 days in court. Addison was very friendly and knowledgeable. Great work!!
