Strict requirements limit the number of certified specialists in SC (access required)

Surfside Beach attorney Kathryn DeAngelo still vividly remembers taking the written exam 17 years ago for her elder law certification. "I took my little portable typewriter with me for the test," she recalled, noting she had been a high school typing teacher for 12 years before getting her law degree in 1984. DeAngelo passed the National Elder Law Foundation exam. Today, she is one of only five certified elder law attorneys in South Carolina, records show. The total number of certified specialists in the state is small: As of Jan. 25, there were 277 attorneys with the designation, according to the S.C. Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization.
