Licensed since 1991
Dale is a superb lawyer. He is hardworking, diligent and well-known not only in his community, but around the courthouses. If I ever had a personal legal matter involving the need for a trial lawyer, Dale would be the one I would hire. I've known Dale since my days at Furman University and followed his career. I am fortunate to be back in SC and have the privilege to work on cases with Dale.
