Whether you are a young couple needing wills after the birth of a child, a grandparent eager to maximize a legacy for descendants, or an entrepreneur looking to make your business dream a reality, I have the experience to help.

I have been counseling individuals and families with respect to wealth preservation and transfer since 2001. After graduating from Harvard College and Harvard Law School, I began my legal career as an estate planning attorney for the Private Client Group of Ropes and Gray LLP in Boston. Upon moving to Greenville in 2005, I joined Leatherwood Walker Todd & Mann, P.C. (now Smith Moore Leatherwood), and in 2008 I opened my own firm, Schumacher Law, LLC.

My legal practice has always focused on estate planning and settlement, asset protection, business succession planning, and trust administration. I have been listed Best Lawyers in America for Trusts and Estates every year since 2008 and am currently President of the Greenville Estate Planning Council. I am also an active member of the Greenville Estate Planning Study Group.

I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my wife, Catherine (a Spartanburg native), and our two boys, Thomas and William. I am a true believer in the power of creative play to improve lives. To that end, I started training in Wado-Ryu karate at age 38; I currently hold a brown belt and am now striving to earn my black. I also love learning and teaching new games to players of all ages.

Finally, I have recently joined Global View Investment Advisors, LLC as a wealth planning strategist. Global View is a totally separate business from Schumacher Law, LLC, and no fees are shared between the firms.
