Biography of Franklin Maury Shuler


Franklin M. Shuler (“Frank”) is the owner of The Real Estate & Business Law Firm of Franklin M. Shuler, LLC.  He launched his new firm on August 1, 2017.  Frank began practicing law in November of 1992.  He joined the law firm of Jones & Seth, LLP in Sumter, South Carolina in May of 1993.  Initially, he was a litigation attorney, but his heart was always in the business side of the law.  After six and one-half years of trial work, he decided to change his area of emphasis in order for him to be more accessible and attentive to his real estate and business clients.  After twenty-four years with his former firm, he decided it was the right time to establish his own practice in Sumter. 


Frank grew up as an “Air Force Brat.”  His father, Lieutenant General E. G. Shuler, Jr. had a career which spanned thirty-two years which resulted in frequent moves around the world.  Frank attended four different high schools in four different states.  Thus far, he has lived in twenty-five different places during his lifetime.  Frank credits this with making him particularly adept at working with people and understanding their needs.  He has never met a stranger.  Frank attended The Citadel following in a long line of family Citadel graduates. Frank is a member of the Class of 1985.  After graduation, Frank was sworn in as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. While in the Air Force, he was stationed at Grand Forks Air Force Base in Grand Forks, North Dakota where he served as a Combat Crew Flight Commander in the 321st Strategic Missile Wing. Frank was a launch officer for Minuteman II Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.  During his service, he earned a Master of Science Administration in 1990 from Central Michigan University.  In 1989, Frank separated from the Air Force as a Captain.  Following his service, he earned a Juris Doctorate degree from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University in 1992.  Mr. Shuler is a member of the South Carolina Bar having been admitted to practice in November of 1992.   


Frank is actively involved in the Sumter community. He has served as the Chairman of the Governmental Affairs Committee and is currently serving on the Small Business Council for the Sumter Chamber of Commerce. Frank has been the President of the Sertoma Civic Club, Chairman of the United Way for Sumter, Clarendon and Lee Counties, Chairman of the Sumter Housing Authority as well as serving on several committees within his church.  He has been married to Allison C. Shuler for thirty-one years, and they have three daughters, Carin, Anna Kate and Madeleine Maury along with two son in laws.

Highly Recommend!
Excellent attorney! I chose Mr. Shuler's office to close on my recent real estate purchase. They were able to close on the date we were planning on and made the entire process very quick and easy. His office is very welcoming and friendly - they were very resourceful in answering any questions I had throughout the process. I would definitely recommend this office!
