Barbara G. Holmes

Attorney at Law, M.B.A.


After graduating from the Charleston School of Law in 2008, I was fortunate to be hired to work for the Director of Land Protection at the Lowcountry Land Trust. We worked with private landowners who wanted to safeguard their property from undesirable development. Favorable tax benefits along with local and state grant funds resulted in a truly remarkable surge in land protection success in the coastal plain as the Land Trust celebrated its 25-year anniversary. I worked directly wi h landowners, prepared grant applications, drafted conservation easements, performed due diligence tasks and closed over 100 easement projects including both donated easements and purchased easement transactions. As staff attorney, I also provided legal guidance for conservation projects and organizational governance, reporting directly to the President & CEO. 

Now, private practice now allows me to build on my experience and expand my perspective. Whether you are a landowner or an easement holder, I can offer knowledgeable guidance regarding your conservation project.
