In 2008 I graduated from the University of Miami's School of Law and immediately moved to South Carolina to practice criminal law.  Within my first two years of practice I argued before the Supreme Court of South Carolina and helped to change the law in South Carolina to the benefit of my clients.  After an additional five years of practice with larger firms and many more cases, I decided to open the Truluck Law Firm.  I am at all times committed to the practice of law and it is my goal to provide responsive representation to keep my client's informed of their options throughout the legal process.

Truluck is the real deal
Chris Truluck is a gem. He provided me with ample information during my consultation to make an informed decision that felt right for me regarding the foreclosure of my mother's property. He was patient with my legal ignorance, and provided examples that helped me understand my options. I categorically recommended Chris. You can trust Chris, bottom line.
