Practice Areas

With over 60 years of experience, we help individuals and small businesses in South Carolina identify and resolve their legal issues. Since we are selective about the cases we take, our attorneys are able to efficiently devote their resources towards an effective outcome. Whether through mediation, the courtroom, or settlement, our focus is to find the best possible resolution for your case.

Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation often involves multiple issues, including contract disputes, commercial leases, purchase agreements, debt collection, and partnership and corporation disputes. These cases may be tried at the local, state, or federal level. With our successful track record at all three levels, we will help you determine which court makes sense for your situation.

Partnership & Corporation Disputes

Business partnerships and corporation disputes may be contentious and complicated. We can help with cases such as business dissolution, division of profits, breach of fiduciary duty, and shareholder disputes by taking a measured approach to a volatile situation.

Contract Disputes

From non-compete and purchase agreements to breach of contract and business disputes, we handle disputes that arise between parties over the terms and compliance of a contract. By discussing your goals early on, together we may weigh the benefits and costs of the right strategy for an expedient outcome.

Real Estate Litigation

Involving personal, development, and commercial interests, real estate litigation can involve title claims, easements, restrictive covenants, joint property ownership disputes, and purchase contract defaults. Our discipline for details provides a strong foundation for getting these cases resolved quickly.

Insurance Coverage & Insurance Bad Faith

We review and analyze insurance policies to advise our clients on potential availability or limitations on insurance coverage. If you think you have a dispute regarding your insurance coverage or bad faith, we can help you determine whether or not you have a case.

Construction Litigation

Construction disputes take a variety of forms. Your building might have property damage due to a construction or design defect, or disputes over a payment or scope of work with a contractor. We will protect your investment to get your project back on track.

Professional Negligence

We help doctors, lawyers, architects, and engineers defend themselves in professional responsibility matters related to their professional practice, such as ethical conduct and legal malpractice. We also represent clients and patients who need to bring legal action against a professional who has harmed them.

Personal Injury & Property Damage

A close examination of the facts and evidence is crucial to develop the strongest possible personal injury or property damage case. Each one is unique; for example, we have handled electrical damage claims covering lost business profits, a case with personal injuries from an accident in a company-owned vehicle, and the defense of a utility against wrongful death claims.

Free Consultation

Your choice of lawyer is crucial to the outcome of your case. We are pleased to schedule a thirty-minute consultation at no cost to you either over the phone or in person to discuss your case. This allows you to get to know us a bit and see if we are a good fit for your needs. Please note that we are selective about the cases we take in order to provide our clients with all the resources need to bring their issue to resolution.
