About Me

I practice law in both South Carolina and Florida for Special Needs Legal Advocacy, providing legal services in the areas of estate and wealth-management planning, special needs planning, trust and will administration, and advocacy for disabled children and adults.

I am committed to community service and am currently active as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Community Law Program, a charitable organization that provides free legal services to those that cannot otherwise afford legal representation.  I am a member of NAMI where I lecture on the need for Transition Planning to prepare their disabled child(ren) for a transition in caregiving environments; I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.

I am happily married with three wonderful children, two of whom are my husband's. My family has been touched by autism and Alzheimer's, inspiring my work in this area.

  • James P. Frederick

    I endorse this lawyer. Because Attorney Johnson and I practice in the same areas of law, I have had the opportunity to review a great many of her answers. Her responses to Avvo questions demonstrate a firm grasp of the applicable laws as well as a determination to provide the asker with practical and helpful direction. I am happy to endorse Attorney Johnson and look forward to learning more about Florida probate law from her. James Frederick

  • Nelson Miguel Amorim Varajao

    Carol is dedicated to her clients. She works diligently to provide quality representation, and takes pride in her work. I trusted Carol to appear for me once while I was in Europe, and I was very impressed with the quality of her work and with her timeliness and attention. I have since recommended her, and I will gladly continue to do so.
