Your Civil Rights Matter
All citizens in South Carolina and around the country have legally protected rights. Too often, the underprivileged and the oppressed are taken advantage of by law enforcement and the justice system. We provide aggressive representation to our community in the following areas:
We all have constitutional protections and expectations of reasonable conduct from law enforcement. Although the police often encounter dangerous situations, their use of force must be warranted and consistent with the law. If you or a loved one has suffered harm due to the misconduct of a police or corrections officer, we are here to protect your rights and help you obtain just compensation.
The South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC) has a gang problem, placing inmates in physical danger. SCDC is understaffed and the staff they do have are often concerned with their own safety causing them to be often compromised. If SCDC staff is on notice that an inmate may be in danger and fails to protect them, the SCDC is civilly liable. Our firm helps inmates and their families pursue claims against the SCDC to recover monetary damages.
Why You Need A South Carolina Criminal Defense Attorney
No matter what the charges against you are, it is crucial to contact a defense attorney before speaking to law enforcement, family, or friends. When you meet with us, we will explain your rights and explore all your legal options.

Defending Minors Against Juvenile Crimes in South Carolina
The juvenile system handles offenses allegedly committed by minors under 18, where the rules, goals, and procedures are much different than in adult cases. Although minors have the same constitutional rights as adults, it takes a particularly skilled attorney to protect your child’s rights and future. Our criminal defense attorney has an impressive track record of success in all types of juvenile cases, including:
- Drug possession
- Domestic violence
- Juvenile sex crimes
College Title IX Investigations
Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 applies to all schools that receive federal funding, including colleges and universities. The law intends to eliminate sex-based discrimination in the educational system and provide legal recourse to victims of alleged sexual misconduct and assault in school. If a student accuses another student or faculty member of sexual misconduct, the school is required to initiate a Title IX investigation.
If you are facing a Title IX investigation, don’t go at it alone. These investigations often favor the complainant, and any information obtained can be used in a future criminal proceeding, which can derail your academic career and impact your future. Do not go through this process alone. Having an advisor by itself can lead to more favorable outcomes in these investigations. Let our experienced Title IX attorney act as your advisor during this difficult time.
South Carolina Injury Attorney
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to another party’s negligent or reckless conduct, you have a right to take legal action to recover damages. By working with our experienced personal injury attorney, you can obtain compensation that considers all your medical and financial needs – now and in the future.
We also litigate mass torts on behalf of groups of individuals harmed by dangerous substances, including service members stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. On August 10, 2022, President Joe Biden signed the PACT Act, which expands health care resources and disability benefits for combat veterans.
The Pact Act also allows those who were at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune for 30 days between the years of 1953 to 1987 – military, civilians, and their families – to seek reparations from the U.S. government for toxic water exposure. Our team is here to help you and your family get the compensation you deserve under this new law. In addition to criminal defense, our practice includes personal injury claims arising from:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Truck accidents
- Medical malpractice
If you or a loved one has been convicted or sentenced for a crime, our legal team can help explore options for Post-Conviction Relief (PCR) to ask the court to overturn the conviction. PCR hearings usually revolve around the ineffective assistance of your trial counsel. As an experienced criminal trial attorney, our PCR attorney can help you get a new trial.
