Beatrice Whitten (“Bea”) is a native of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. She graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1990, after spending ten years working as a clerk with Judge Fielding at the Charleston County Probate Court. Ever since, Bea has made Mount Pleasant her home and place of business, centering her practice on helping South Carolinians and Lowcountry residents with their Social Security disability and probate cases. She has also worked as a civil mediator in Charleston since 1994. According to Bea, these areas of law are her passion, because they fulfill her life’s desire and focus as a “problem solver”.
Like most Lowcountry locals, Bea loves the cypress swamps and saltwater marshes, and the familiar smell of pluff mud. Not surprisingly, you can find Bea on the water or in the woods around Charleston in her free time. Bea and her husband, Pat, have raised two children and numerous dogs and cats along the way, and are now enjoying the “fruits of their labor”…spoiling their grandchildren every chance they get.
