About me

Debbie Mollycheck's success, in court and in settlement negotiations
of complex and simple cases, is attributable to her hard work, combined
with compassion. These attributes have been developed over 30 years as
Mrs. Mollycheck worked her way through undergraduate, graduate and law
school. She continues with these attributes as she represents the
clients of her law practice.
Mrs. Mollycheck
graduated magna cum laude (highest honors) from Winthrop University in
1976. She also had an outstanding academic record at Winthrop
University's graduate School of Business Administration. She gained
valuable business experience not only through her academic study but
also as she participated in numerous civic and college activities. She
was a member of the National Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi and member
and officer of numerous campus organizations. She was an officer in a
business student organization where she was in the front ranks of
leadership and involved in business research.

She worked for and assisted a business professor with numerous
business research projects. She was nominated by a graduate business
organization to be the organization's outstanding student and won
national recognition for the achievement.

These experiences provided the background for Mrs. Mollycheck to build her own successful law practice since 1986.

While in college, Mrs. Mollycheck majored in communications, which
has been beneficial as a legal advocate. Her ability to write and speak
effectively were honed not only in her speech and writing courses, but
also as one of the editors of her college newspaper. This background
served Mrs. Mollycheck well as she was granted membership to the Moot
Court Board while in law school at the University of South Carolina.
The Moot Court Board recognizes appellate advocacy--the ability to
present a client's position, both verbally and in writing, to a Court
of Appeals.

Mrs. Mollycheck's service as an editor of her college newspaper,
provided her with the background to produce the first York County Bar
Newsletter, of which Mrs. Mollycheck was the editor, and for which she
wrote numerous articles. In addition to seminars and lectures, Mrs.
Mollycheck formulated the idea to produce a pamphlet, My Child Needs
Help, to assist parents, teachers, doctors, and other community
leaders. While a member of the Governor's Juvenile Justice Task Force's
Community Youth Council for the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit, Mrs.
Mollycheck served as chairman of the My Child Needs Help Committee.

Mrs. Mollycheck has been married since 1976 and has two children.
She has represented adults and children from all walks of life since
1984. Client's homes have ranged from a one bedroom efficiency
apartment to over 10,000 square foot homes; incomes have ranged from
below the poverty level to millions of dollars a year; assets have
ranged from minimal to millions of dollars. Clients have included all
races and numerous nationalities.

Mrs. Mollycheck has also served as a guardian ad litem in abuse and
neglect, custody, visitation and adoption cases. In 1995, Mrs.
Mollycheck became a Family Court Mediator and has mediated numerous
cases since that time.

Mrs. Mollycheck is a member of the American Bar Association, South
Carolina Bar, American Association for Justice, and the Family Law
sections of those associations. She is also a member of the York County
Bar Association, and the South Carolina Women Lawyers Association. She
served as president of the York County Bar Association and has
participated in numerous civic organizations. She serves as an Outside
Mentor in the South Carolina Lawyer Mentoring Program of the South
Carolina Bar.

A native of South Carolina, Mrs. Mollycheck was born in Charleston
and grew up in Mount Pleasant, where she graduated from Gen. William
Moultrie High School. She entered Winthrop University in 1973 and made
her home in Rock Hill following her graduation and marriage. Mrs.
Mollycheck credits her parents, Frank and Rachel Mollycheck, for
instilling the values and work ethic so important to her success.
