Amazing attorney
I recently hired Mr. Moses to help with a legal matter and I can definitely say I am glad I did. Mr. Moses and his office manager, Mrs. Elizabeth are amazing, extremely knowledgeable, very personable, and show a great amount of compassion in dealing with clients who come to them for help. I would definitely use his office again if I ever had need without hesitation, and I would recommend them to anyone who needs help with any area that is in his expertise!

Top-notch
Charged with DUI and turned to Marion for help. His expertise and demeanor were very comforting in the early days. Got me prepared for the road that was to come, and was accessible when I had any questions. Helped me to get a temporary license within 48 hours. Within 6 months, all charges dropped, and live could go on. Very thankful to Mr. Moses and Elizabeth for all their help.

Attorney Moses did exceptional work
My case took about a year to complete; Elizabeth kept me updated on my case monthly. Attorney Moses was very helpful, always returned my calls and he was informative during the course of the year leading up to my case. The results for my case were better than expected. I will use them in the future if need be. I am very thankful for their service.

Extremely satisfied
The one thing that stands out about Attorney Moses, he is straightforward about your case. Very honest and up front on what to expect. He didn’t overstate that he would get a huge settlement but, said he would work hard to get the max he could and he did! Extremely satisfied with the way they handled my MVA and I hope I never have to use their service again but I wouldn’t hesitate to call them for any legal issues.

Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Marion for over 14 years. He is highly respected among other lawyers. I recommend him for litigation, personal injury, worker's comp and criminal defense. Marion is an intelligent, top notch professional, yet down to earth and has the unique ability to explain things in a way that is easy to understand. I have seen him advocating for his clients in Court. I am confident in Marion's ability to handle cases; that is why I often recommend him to potential clients looking for quality representation in Columbia, SC and surrounding areas."
DUI and DWI Attorney | May 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Marion for many years. He is an excellent attorney and cares about his clients. Although we both practice criminal defense, if someone tells me that they've hired Mr. Moses, I tell them that they are in good hands."
Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Marion is one of the most knowledgeable attorneys in the all encompassing field of criminal law that I know. Marion is also one of the most likable people you can meet. The two combined are what make him one of the best trial lawyers in the state. Don't confuse his likability for lack of fierce advocacy. He won't let you down and it doesn't hurt that the other side likes your attorney!"
