Beth ann Prince:
At Prince Law Firm, We don't
just represent "clients."
We represent people.
Difficult times are often when you need an attorney the most. Whether you are going through a divorce, fighting for custody of your children, or trying to get the settlement and support you deserve, you want someone to listen to your story and explain to you how the legal process works. I have built my career and my reputation understanding every person deserves to be treated with respect by the legal system.
Beth Ann Prince
Family Law Attorney
On her solo family law practice: My approach to the practice of family law is an integration of serious trial experience with compassionate understanding. Family law clients need strong, solid legal advice, but they also want to be heard. To ensure I can effectively tell each client’s “story” to the Court, I dedicate myself to learning the specific details that make each person’s case different.
Emerging issues in family law practice: It is not enough to be knowledgeable about just the law. Modern family law practitioners must stay well-versed on increasingly common issues affecting their cases, such as mental illness, personality disorders, addiction, and abuse. How we present these issues in Court may profoundly impact the outcome, particularly regarding child custody, which is why we often use expert witnesses to assist us.
We also often use experts to assist in presenting complex financial issues to the Court. For example, many local individuals are self-employed, which poses a special set of financial issues, such as income verification and business valuations. Experience in handling complex issues and utilizing financial experts can be a crucial factor in achieving a favorable financial result in your case.

Experience. Service. Community.
My legal career has afforded me trial experience from both sides of the bench: I started as an Assistant Solicitor and Special Gun Prosecutor for the 14th Judicial Circuit. Following that, I was in private practice as a civil and family trial attorney. Eventually, I was appointed as a Magistrate Court Judge, where I was responsible for the jury trial docket. After I finally returned to private practice, I quickly narrowed my focus exclusively to family law, because that was where I felt I was making the greatest difference in my clients’ lives.
I have a B.A. in Communications from the University of Dayton in Dayton, OH. I graduated cum laude from Nova Southeastern Shepard Broad Law Center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1999. After law school, I returned to Hilton Head Island where my family has lived since the late 1970's. Hilton Head has grown tremendously since the days when I could ride my moped from father’s house in Sea Pines to the (old 2-lane) bridge without the burden of the traffic we all expect today. I remember well the car dealership that used to occupy the property where my office is currently located. I love the Lowcountry, and I love practicing law in our community. My husband and I are proud to be raising our daughter here, along with our five dogs: Duke, Jax, Ozzy, Ricky, and Elvis.
