Michael J. Polk


After serving in the Navy, Mike settled in the Midlands of South Carolina, where he has practiced law for over 25 years. He is experienced in helping clients plan for the future through estate planning as well as navigating the probate process. This includes estate planning through wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and probate administration and litigation. He also helps families seek the appointment of a guardian or conservator for those without estate planning documents.  He has served as special administrator and special conservator in special circumstances.

Mike helps with business formation, planning, and disputes, and he helps creditors assert their rights in state, Federal, and Bankruptcy Court. He has appeared at virtually every level of court in South Carolina, from the Magistrate’s Court to the South Carolina Supreme Court.
