About the Toussaint Law Firm
Prepare, prepare, prepare—that is the firm’s motto. We do our best to prepare a client’s case and sort through complex matters by creating timelines, strategy plans, alimony projections, child support calculations, property debt worksheets, and more. This approach also allows us to clearly communicate to clients about their situations, ensuring that everyone involved understands every client meeting, mediation, settlement discussion and court ruling. We research medical and criminal records to certify each client’s case, and work to provide innovative approaches that may resolve the situation instead of court.
The Toussaint Law Firm stresses teamwork: we provide a team approach to help in divorce or family law issues. A team of an attorney and a paralegal works together with every client, ensuring you always have someone you can call at any time. This team approach improves communication and reduces cost to our clients. If you ever need information, please do not hesitate to call.
Additionally, we work closely with an extensive network of experts and legal support professionals to provide access to resources that best protect our clients’ interests. Some of the professionals we use include: certified public accountants; business valuation experts; forensic computer specialists; real estate appraisers; licensed private detectives; psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, custody evaluators and physicians; court reporters; process servers; guardians ad litem; and technology experts. We arrange the experts to best meet the needs of each individual case.
Whether you are entering a difficult divorce, struggling with custody issues, looking forward to an adoption or planning for the future of your children, Scott Toussaint and his team will support you throughout the process and help you move into the next chapter of your life.

I endorse this lawyer. I have had the pleasure of knowing K. Scott Toussaint both professionally and personally for numerous years. He is a tremendous asset to his profession, his community, and his country. I have been in court with Scott as opposing counsel and as counsel for our respective clients with common causes. His preparedness for court and knowledge of the law make him a superior advocate for his clients. Scott’s desire to provide his clients the best possible representation is also characteristic of his entire office staff. Even though Scott’s commitment to his clients is tireless and never ending, he dedicates time to various community causes and also serves as a Judge Advocate General in the South Carolina Army National Guard. Last but not least, Scott is committed to his family as loving husband, father, son, and brother. Scott’s sincerity and dedication make him one of the shining stars in his profession, community, country, and family.
