While the majority of our time and focus is on building families, we also advocate in Circuit Court and before the South Carolina Supreme Court for our clients to be made whole from injuries they sustained due to the negligence of others.
We do not accept many civil cases, but when there is a significant injury or injustice, we commit our firm’s resources, time and energy to vindicate our clients’ rights. Our firm takes particular interest in pursuing novel claims or unique legal theories. In one such case, we obtained a $3.75 million verdict for our clients and were the first to obtain a damages award against the State of South Carolina that was double the statutory limits ($1.2 million), by proving that two occurrences of negligence had occurred.
We review civil cases for no charge. We believe your injury should be appropriately valued, and reflect the serious long-term financial and medical consequences you and your family will experience.
None of this information should be considered as a description or characterization of the quality of the firm’s representation and in no way should be interpreted as a guarantee of a specific result for your case or any case. Every case is different and must be evaluated on its own merits.

If you're involved in adoption in any way, you've heard the comments. They range from uneducated and well-meaning to deeply insensitive and sometimes rude and painful. Adoptive parents can do their children a great service in a) being prepared for such comments and having ready responses and b) talking openly with their children about the feelings that these comments raise - even if they are harmless in intent. In order to have conversations that feel safe and welcoming to adoptees, parents need to educate themselves in advance - maybe even years before they think it's necessary. Even if you're just beginning the adoption process, this course is for you.
We're so thankful for adult adoptees like @therapyredeemed who have taken the time to educate those of us who haven't had that experience. He is offering a 12 week workshop for adoptive parents that covers many helpful topics, including processing loss and grief, attachment and relationships, racial/ethnic identity, the understanding of trauma, and the overall complexities that come with separation from birth family and birth culture. You can use the link below to sign up for the course and we encourage you to spend some time reading the materials available to you there.
