Ravenel Bridge Charleston SC

Charleston, SC Litigation Lawyers

Some disputes can be worked out without the need to file a lawsuit, and a reasoned approach to assisting clients in their disputes often involves seeking to resolve these conflicts without resorting to litigation. When reason does not prevail, however, we are experienced in taking legal action for our clients in both state and federal courts.

South Carolina Attorneys With Experience and Knowledge You Can Count On

With almost 40 years of combined litigation experience, we have a working knowledge of the legal system that you can rely on.  We have represented numerous clients in cases at the trial and appellate levels in South Carolina’s State and Federal courts, and have also represented several clients in other courts in Georgia, Louisiana, and Virginia. Although our practice is concentrated in the admiralty and maritime field, we also litigate cases involving transportation issues, real estate disputes, construction, business disputes, and personal injuries, among others.

Committed to Providing Personalized Service

We strive to put clients first. We think that getting to know our clients, taking the time to fully understand their legal issues and goals, and being accessible to our clients by telephone, email, and in person is important. We also welcome your comments and critiques so that we can improve our practice.
