Our Firm

Bluestein & Douglas was formed in 1999 by Natalie Parker Bluestein and Jane Nussbaum Douglas to practice in the area of Family Law. We have a receptionist, Mary Anne Martin, and two paralegals, Dolly Lockwood Lipman and Rustalyn Umphlett. We are located on Carriage Lane in the West Ashley area. Our main office is on the second floor, but we have a conference room on the first floor which is handicapped accessible. Our clients are varied. We represent both men and women, wealthy and middle class clients. Our fees are in the mid-range of other Family Court attorneys in the Charleston area.

We at Bluestein & Douglas believe it is important to you, no matter how simple or complex your divorce, separation or custody case is, to have an attorney who is familiar with the judges, mediators, other attorneys, and law in South Carolina. Our goal is to give you straightforward and realistic advice and to resolve your case as cost effectively as possible.

Our attorneys together have over 45 years of combined legal experience.
