Meredith Noon opened her real estate law firm in November of 1998. A graduate of USC Law School, Meredith holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Duke University. Between degrees, she was in restaurant management, giving her a customer service based business approach that continues to set the firm apart today.
She and Steven A. Hammett, II formed Noon and Hammett, LLC in 2000 and currently have offices in both Greenville SC and Spartanburg SC. The Greenville office is headed by Meredith, and supported by Leigh Wright, Stefanie Kauffman, Cindy Bass and Robin Natskakula. The team works together to carefully check titles, prepare real estate documents and handle residential and commercial closings for clients across South Carolina.
Meredith enjoys interacting with her clients in person, over the phone and via email with ‘TLC,’ enjoying the diverse people she is privileged to work with.
“People often think that real estate closings and work are boring because there is so much paperwork. But the folks sitting across the table are always different,” Meredith says, “making the practice interesting and fun!”
Her closings are tailored for the needs of the clients – allowing plenty of time for a first time home buyer to ask questions and feel comfortable, while expediting the process for a savvy real estate investor.
The office environment is welcoming and clients are provided with assorted complimentary beverages of their choosing and can grab a snack if they are hungry. Her Golden Retriever, Rio, has been coming to the office since he was 8 weeks old and is often ‘working’ and available for some additional TLC upon request.
Real estate transactions, both commercial and residential, are the focus of the business. Both attorneys prepare and review documents relating to real estate such as deeds, contracts, leases, promissory notes and mortgages.
The Firm assists clients with simple wills and other estate planning documents such as living wills (declarations of desire for a natural death), healthcare powers of attorney and general durable powers of attorney. The firm also has the ability to form LLCs (limited liability companies), and corporations for their clients.
Steven Hammett, II graduated from Clemson University in 1992 with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1995. After being admitted to the South Carolina Bar in November of 1995, he joined the law firm of Odom, Terry, Abernathy & Cantrell. Steve practiced law with Odom, Terry, Abernathy & Cantrell until September of 1999 and then joined Meredith Noon in the forming of Noon and Hammett, LLC in 2000. He practiced in the Greenville Office of Noon and Hammett until 2010, when the decision was made to open the Spartanburg Office of Noon and Hammett, LLC. Steve heads up the Spartanburg office, assisted by Rosemary Gaddy and Melanie Piggott.
Steve primarily practices in the areas of commercial and residential real estate including handling closings, drafting documents and Seller Representation. However, he also represents clients in other matters including personal injury cases, simple estate planning and business formations.
Steve is fulfilling a lifelong dream of helping clients through the practice of Law. He makes a purposeful decision every day to put the needs of his clients first and work diligently to protect their interests.
Steve says, “I am honored to help my clients make their dreams of home ownership come true.”
Steve is proud to say that he is the co-owner of a small law firm that gives its clients the attention needed to make their real estate transaction a smooth and memorable occasion. He and Meredith make themselves readily accessible to their clients and are always prompt to return calls and meet with clients.
Steve also says, “I want my clients to be treated better than I would expect to be treated by a law firm.”
It is with that premise in mind that Noon and Hammett operates. They make sure that the Firm goes the extra mile to exceed its client’s expectations.
