A desire to work hard for her clients is second nature for attorney Angela Elliott Frazier. Inspired by her father, Senator Dick Elliott, who spent 30 years in the state legislature and never missed a day of the session, Angela learned the value of hard work.
“I was lucky to have parents who were great role models,” Frazier said. “Their value system and strong work ethic were ingrained in me from a very young age.”
That work ethic, together with extensive education and work experience, have prepared Frazier to assist families and business owners with a variety of legal needs, to become their “lawyer for life.”
After earning her law degree from the University of South Carolina, Frazier practiced for three years in Myrtle Beach before spending four years with a business law firm in Greenville, South Carolina. She then opened the Elliott Frazier Law Firm, LLC, in March of 2012. Her practice covers family law, real estate, estate planning, guardian and conservator actions, business law and contract preparation, civil litigation and personal injury.
“Once you’ve developed a relationship with a client in one area of the law, it’s nice to be able to help them with other legal issues that arise,” she said. “I really enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories. It’s exciting to be at a real estate closing with a person who’s getting their first house, but even in a case such as a divorce, it’s an honor to be able to help people through a difficult time in their life.”
Frazier received a Masters in Business from Clemson in 2011 and served as an adjunct professor in the paralegal program at Greenville Tech.
Angela E. Frazier has been appointed to Greenville Tech’s Advisory Committee for paralegal studies and will have the honor of serving with several other attorneys and judges from the upstate. As a former adjunct professor, Angela looks forward to assisting Greenville Tech and providing guidance and assistance for the future advancement of the paralegal program.
Frazier said June 7 was a proud day for her family, when Governor Nikki Haley recognized Senator Elliott’s service to the state by presenting him with South Carolina’s highest civilian honor, The Order of the Palmetto.
“Watching my dad through many years of service to the community is one of the reasons I wanted to go to law school. Now I’m grateful that I have the opportunity to serve clients in the Upstate community. Now I have a chance to give back.” she said.
