Practice area
  1. Workers compensation
    I represent injured workers anywhere in South Carolina in all Workers' Compensation Law issues. I've handled hundreds of cases and helped hundreds of injured workers obtain the benefits and compensation they deserve. Back, neck, shoulder, knee, head, brain injury, brachial plexus, carpal tunnel, psychological overlay, death claims - I've seen it all and I understand how the system works. Don't go it alone when you can have a knowledgeable and experienced work injury attorney on your side!

    40 years

Personal Attention.  Decades of Experience. 

After more than 30 years practicing as a member of a law firm, in January 2016 I went solo, opened my own law firm, and have since continued to provide knowlegable and experienced representation to my clients.  Primarily, I represent injured workers in workers' compensation claims and occassionally accept other personal injury cases. 

I enjoy the hands on day to day involvement in my clients' cases.  When you call my firm, you speak directly to me.  I answer your questions,  not a paralegal.   I return your calls. 

Call me today for a free consultation to see if I can help you!

Ilene King is A+...a really great attorney- highly recommended
Ilene King represented me and my legal needs extremely well, and was very knowledgeable regarding the laws surrounding my worker's compensation case. She was always very attentive to my concerns and able to answer all the questions I had(and I certainly had a lot throughout the entire process) in a clear and logical manner that made sense. When communicating regarding complex statutes or legal scenarios, she was able to break it down into layman's terms and express herself and the law in a simple, accurate fashion. Furthermore, she always responded to any communication, whether phone or email, quickly and prepared. I was very thankful for this, and reduced my stress levels greatly. I always felt very secure knowing she was representing me, and knew I was in good, caring hands. Perhaps most importantly, I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case. Even a few years now beyond the settlement, I can contact her with a question and she's right there, willing and able to answer my questions. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone, including family and friends. A+++
