Kenneth E Berger

About me

I am a Columbia, SC attorney committed to protecting the rights of the injured and aggrieved. I have dedicated my entire professional career to the representation of individuals and families in personal injury, workers' compensation and civil litigation matters.

I am a South Carolina native, born and raised in Columbia. After pursuing college studies at the University of Washington and Harvard University, I decided to return to South Carolina so that I could live, practice law, and serve the community in which I was raised.

I graduated magna cum laude from the College of Charleston in 2004 and received my Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2008.
