Accepting New Clients! Aggressive when needed- Divorce and Child Custody Attorney.  My office is located in the West Ashley area of Charleston, at 1483 Tobias Gadson, Suite 205A - just 5 minutes from Boeing, and a short 15 minute drive from Summerville.  I am licensed in South Carolina, and also in Michigan.   I concentrate my practice on helping people through difficult family law, divorce, child custody and support matters as well as bankruptcy matters.  I truly enjoy both areas of law.  As far as the practice of bankruptcy law,  I know of no other area of law where so much good can be accomplished in such a short time.  In most cases, I can quickly solve problems that have kept my clients sick and sleepless with worry and fear.  I have seen the emotional damage that debt problems can cause in someone's life.  Debt problems can affect everything in a person's world, sometimes ruining marriages and careers because of the stress.  I am passionate about trying to help people overcome these problems and more.  I also represent clients in domestic violence/family law matters, and have helped many clients obtain custody of their children in messy divorce actions.

Exceptional attorney & a good person
Ingrid negotiated an outstanding settlement that encompassed the financial AND emotional well-being of my family. She provided exceptional legal advice, along with the compassion, and encouragement I needed to get through a very contentious divorce.

I was divorced in a year and gained sole custody of my son
Dorchester County - It has been three and a half years since my divorce. My son is now five and a half years old and his father started coming around less than a year ago. He was non-existent for years. I did a good bit of leg work back in 2017/pre-divorce and Atty. Rudolf made it easier for me to put everything on paper. My ex-husband is a very intelligent, highly functioning, narcissistic individual who can convince almost anyone. Charming and articulate, of which I am the opposite. I feared that I was not going to be good enough to represent myself and/or have someone represent on my behalf and what I want for my children (peace, sanity and freedom from mental and emotional abuse and alcoholic environment) but I was blessed enough to select the right lawyer to represent me and understand what is best for me and my kids.

Ms. RUDOLPH'S EXPERT LEGAL EXPERTISE HELPED ME TURN MY LIFE AROUND; SHE WAS A LIFESAVER FOR ME AND MY FAMILY
Ms. Rudolph's legal guidance in 2013 helped me get back on my feet and turn my life around, and my family and I are doing very well to this day, because of all she did for us regarding a very complex financial situation. She really cared, and we found her to be an expert in our situation. My family and I highly recommend her, and we are so glad we happened to see her website on-line so we could say Thank you, and May God Bless you for all you did for us, Ingrid. We met you in the Greer area of SC. We wish you all the best, always.

Supurb Attorney
I am a medical professional who works long hours so when my wife and I were going through a divorce I felt certain I would not get equal parenting time. But with Ingrid's help, I now have joint custody and equal parenting time with my girls. I am forever grateful to her for her wisdom and guidance throughout the divorce process.

An honest attorney
My wife and I have only been married a year, so this was an easy divorce. But my wife tried to ask for alimony and tried to drag things out. What I appreciate about Ms. Rudolph is that she did not allow my wife to get a thing and got me a divorce after only three months. She was true to her word and never charged me for phone calls or emails, something I know most attorneys nickle and dime people on. I would recommend her to anybody.

Highly Respected & Compassionate
It has been my experience that Ingrid Rudolph is a compassionate and highly respected attorney in the Charleston, SC, area that will undoubtedly support you and the most important needs of your family. She handles high-conflict cases with integrity, carefully listens, and provides sound legal guidance throughout the entire process. She has repeatedly shown me that her best interest is with her client, carefully keeping disputes involving minor children a priority; Ingrid cares, she communicates, she is effective with opposing counsel. I am proud to have Ingrid by my side during one of the most difficult times a family can endure.

Could not have asked for more
I hired Ingrid to handle my contested divorce proceedings and could not have made a better choice. Her compassion and understanding through such a difficult time was simply amazing. Her legal guidance was priceless and I would never be able to repay her for all she did!

Ingrid Rudolph is a SUPERB Family Attorney; money well spent!
When I found myself fighting for custody of my child from out of state, against my ex-wife, I knew little about who to choose as an attorney. I read a lot of online reviews, and came across one on this site for Ingrid that stood out. I decided to contact her with my case, and see if she could be the right attorney for me. I have to say after hiring her, I am pleased. I am a very head strong person, and so sometimes we didn't agree, but I always respected that she knew more than I about the law, and how to proceed, and she never led me wrong. If you're a father looking for an attorney who will help you fight for your rights to your child, Ingrid is the one! If you're a mother looking for someone to help you, choose Ingrid. She has great integrity, and compassion, while wrapped with a ton of legal knowledge. It's a fabulous mix that in my case made for a great celebration in the end. I am thankful to have custody of my child for the first time, and it is greatly due to all the hard work Ingrid put in on my case. Thank you again Ingrid; you're amazing!

Awesome Awesome
Ingrid helped me after my divorce when I had a custody issue with my daughter. She negotiated on my behalf and spared me a whole lot of potential grief (as well as my daughter's).
Posted by Wendy | January 17, 2013
Highly recommended
I worked with Ingrid in Washington state and she was very easy to work with, very responsive and kept me up to date on what was going on and what I needed to do. She was up front and straight forward which I wanted and worked quickly to get things done. She understood the stress that I was dealing with in regards to a bankruptcy and was thoughtful and considerate in her communications. I could not recommend her enough.

A God Sent Angel
I believe Ingrid Rudolph is my children's earthly assigned guardian angel. In a system that is biased toward awarding custodial care to the mother, Ms Rudolph provided excellent counsel and took appropriate actions to keep my children in state and protect my rights as a father. She explained the law, the legal system, and the risks. She researched and understood my ex-wife and her lawyers strengths and weaknesses and positioned us appropriately. Ms Rudolph listened to my heart and became a champion for me and most importantly, my children. I thank God for bringing us together. I don't believe there are many out there with her heart, passion, and zeal. With her professional knowledge and help we beat the odds. I can't express my appreciation enough.

Intelligent Lawyer
Ms. Rudolph's understanding of the law and balanced approach to all parties makes her incredibly efficient and cost effective. She is precise and does not waste time increasing unnecessary billable hours. She is also incdredibly transparent and honest with her clients requirements and obligations, leaving little room for confusion or inflated expectations. Ms. Rudolph assisted me in my divorce and also in my debt consolidation. The process is not a pleasant one, however with her expertise in these areas I felt she was my advocate for a fair settlement.

Extremely Helpful and Knowledgeable
In addition to being extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the subject matter, Ingrid was patient, kind and understanding with my elderly mother-in-law. Ingrid took the time to make sure my mother-in-law understood all of her options and had only my mother-in-law’s best interests in mind.
