We hope that this will be a useful resource and that Deni and Pifer Estate Law can be of assistance if and when you are in need of estate planning assistance.
The Benefits of working with Pifer Estate Law
Pifer Estate Law offers a variety of practice areas:
"My husband and I had our first official will and Estate Planning done by Deni Pifer a few years ago. Deni made the process very easy and comfortable for us. It was a very professional yet relaxing atmosphere. She started by asking some questions, listening to what we thought we wanted and was able to guide us through the process. Deni gave us the pros and cons on various ways we could provide for our family. We were able to then decide which format was most suitable. We have recommended her to some of our friends and have no reservations about doing so."
- Liza & Jim Z.
"Deni is a very detail oriented Estate Planning attorney with a focus on delivering customized plans tailored to each of her clients. She has a wonderful depth of knowledge regarding tax and Estate Planning and does an excellent job of sharing that information with clients as they work together to determine to create the appropriate plan. As the Regional Manager of a National Trust Company, I not only use Deni for my personal planning but also have the opportunity to refer many clients to her."
- Matt J.
"When we found Deni, we felt as though we had found a lawyer with a breath of fresh air. Deni's personality and sincere concern for you as a client and a person makes you feel as though you are in your own home and not in a lawyer's office. When we had a need for other experts not in her field, she was able to connect us with experts of high quality that have proven to be exemplary. Our trust in Deni is complete."
- Leigh M.
"Deni C. Pifer: tenacious, methodical, and compassionate. From my father’s initial meeting with Deni to revise his will to the settlement of his estate, Deni’s legal insights and expertise were flawless. When issues arose following my father’s death, Deni always spoke with me directly and resolved the concerns with reassurance and empathy. Her balance of fulfilling the legalities of an estate settlement and her genuine concern for the bereaved are hallmarks of Deni’s legal practice. In her litany of clients, Deni made me feel as if I were the only client."
- Stephanie K.
"I’ve known and worked with Deni for over 11 years and hold her in the highest regard. She has proven to be a knowledgeable and reliable resource for me and my clients. I’ve referred dozens of clients to her for Estate Planning needs over the years and always received positive feedback. In fact, Deni is responsible for my own trust and estate plan, as well as that of my parents. You will undoubtedly receive professional, sophisticated and attentive service when working with Deni Pifer."
- Tommy T.
"Deni was a Godsend when a friend recently died unexpectedly. We were unable to find a will but Deni was able to piece together enough information from files/letters and located the 20 year old will in a lawyer’s vault in another state. Because of the age of the will and the fact that the named executors were all deceased, Deni had to petition the courts to have myself and another friend appointed as co-administrators. The process was somewhat challenging at times but with perseverance, we have been able to execute my friend’s wishes. I highly recommend Deni for all your estate needs."

I was finishing my M.B.A. at Winthrop University at the time of my mother’s death from cancer at her young age of 51. During this time, I took an elective course in Estate Planning and was instantly intrigued with the idea of helping people going through life’s biggest tragedy – the death of a loved one. Growing up in Rock Hill, South Carolina with plans to move to Charleston after law school, I graduated from what was then South Carolina’s only law school – The University of South Carolina. During my time at U.S.C., I took every course available in Estate Planning, Estate Administration and tax law and became a member of the South Carolina State Bar in 1997.
Charlotte rather than Charleston was my future and I began my career in Estate Planning in 1997. While I worked in the trust and planning department in the wealth management groups within First Union, I became a member of the North Carolina State Bar in 1999. It was time to go to work in a law firm! After one year at a firm, I decided I could give my clients my undivided attention and better service if I was a sole practitioner.CONTINUE HERE>>>
