Very Thorough, helpful, and reliable!
Mr. Elliot was extremely kind and extremely helpful. I was very new to legal processes and court function and he explained everything and answered all questions thoroughly. He was also successful in his goal set for the case and it was greatly appreciated.

Two felonies expunged
After being approached by a man carrying a tire iron and screaming his intent to kill me, I drew my gun and defused the situation. The police arrested me for pointing and presenting a firearm, and illegal possession of a handgun-- both felonies. The legal process after being bailed out was a circus. Austin and his partner Tim represented me, and essentially tore their police and their arrests to pieces. Not only were the charges dropped by the D.A., they were expunged. Can't ask for more than that.

Great attorney!!
I received 2 tickets this past fall and I hired Mr. Elliot to represent me regarding these matters. Every step of the way, Mr. Elliot and his office communicated with due diligence about the positive and negative consequences of my decision to take these to court and how he would work to the best of his ability to win my case for me. He did succeed in winning both of these cases. I HIGHLY recommend his services for any legal issues you may have.

Charleston Open Container
I earned myself an open container citation in the summer of 2016 and was a bit concerned I wouldn't be able to get it dismissed and/or expunged because I am old enough to know better (I am in my mid thirties). After speaking to a few local attorneys I went with Austin because he was understanding of the situation, sympathetic, had a great grasp of the law and process, and was able to explain how the process would unfold, step by step. Austin handled everything from start to finish, got my open container dismissed, and then successfully handled the expungement. The whole process took less than 6 months, and only that long because of the intervening holiday season. I would definitely recommend Austin to anyone who runs into open container/alcohol related issues in the Charleston area.

Communicative, Knowledgable, Impressive
I was referred to Mr. Elliot by a friend (who he had also helped) in the Spring of 2016. From start to finish, Mr. Elliot handled my case with class and professionalism. I received a public urination ticket from the CPD. His knowledge and experience regarding applicable case law got my case dismissed. He was patient with my questions and his confidence in his skill reassured throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Mr. Elliot as an outstanding attorney.

Highly Recommended
I was charged with a DUI and immediately researched for the best attorney in the area. Came across Mr. Elliott and Mr. Kulp who had outstanding reviews and called right away. Mr. Elliott, a true professional who was extremely knowledgable, went above and beyond to assist with my case. With their collective experience, the outcome was great and I would recommend Austin to anyone who needs legal assistance.

Excellent Attorney
I was charged with a criminal offense and was referred to Mr. Elliot. I have always been extremely skeptical of attorneys who make false promises. Mr. Elliot is not one of those attorneys. He is a man of his word and his representation exceeded my expectations. He is an excellent communicator and explained everything to me thoroughly. He is reliable and I was confident in his ability to provide adequate representation. Most importantly he achieved the optimal result in my case. I highly recommend him.

Helpful and Hardworking
Mr. Elliot came to my aide right from the beginning. He got to know me as a person and began to get to work right away. He was able to answer all my question with ease, and point me in the right direction immediately in order to receive a good outcome with my case. I was more than happy with the results but even more pleased with how Mr. Elliot conducted himself throughout this whole process. I never felt abandoned and Mr. Elliot assisted in easing my stress. Mr. Elliot will be my recommendation to anyone who seeks legal assistance in Charleston. This is a lawyer who will go a long way and make a well known name for himself in Charleston.

Helpful, Patient and Overall Wonderful!
As someone that has no experience with criminal issues, when we had to deal with the police and courts, Austin was exactly the lawyer I wanted on my side. He was patient explaining everything, made sure we were comfortable with all the next moves. I could not recommend or rave enough about Austin!

Excellent Lawyer-attentive, courteous, quick, & stress free
I was arrested in the summer of 2015 on a cockamamie charge of trespassing after notice. While I take responsibility for not walking away when I should have, I shood up to the injustices of a local hospital and their public safety police. I immediately hired Austin at Kulp law firm from a recommendation of friend. Austin was quick to get on the case and within a short period of time, my case was dropped and I received my expungement order removing my arrest, fingerprints, etc from the records. If you want someone that you can trust and count on to get your case tried properly, Austin at Kulp Law Firm is your guy!

DUI in Charleston
Austin Elliot was a member of the legal team that I hired to defend me against a DUI charge. Austin was hands on from the initial consultation to the final plea agreement. He was knowledgeable, down to earth, and always looking out for my best interests, even if it meant more work for him. We discussed all possibilities at every turn in the case and made decisions together. I received a very favorable plea agreement in my case and Austin played a large role in that outcome. My experience with Austin Elliot was exceptional and I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone.

Professional and Pragmatic
Austin was professional, pragmatic, and wasted no time laying our options for my family. I sincerely appreciated his candor and willingness to step in, last minute, to resolve our issue. As a business owner and community leader, I value and respect those that treat each client as a person and not a number. I would highly recommend Austin.

Great advocate
Austin worked with Tim Kulp to help win a very drawn-out, complicated boundary dispute case for me. Austin was still in law school when I met him, but I was impressed by his ability to research the many obscure details involved with this case. He assisted Mr. Kulp in countless ways and helped organize the reams of documents, motions, plats, deeds, etc. that were needed to bring this case to trial. Although this case was extremely stressful, Tim and Austin made it bearable. They were kind and caring throughout the years it took to bring the case to trial and were tireless advocates for me.

Hardest working and kindest lawyer in Charleston
My charges looked as though I had no hope of staying out of prison, but with C. Austin Elliot's dedicated hard work I had all my charges expunged. I had drug related felonies and told them how I preferred to handle my case to Mr Kulp and Mr Elliot and they didn't flinch one bit. I was able to keep my pride and over a lengthy 3 plus years I was able to have charges all expunged. The prosecutor said that if hadn't been for there persistent and respectful requests from my attorneys they would have never considered leniency on me. They put there good names on the line for me and it made all the difference. We paid upfront and they represented me till the end like I was there only case. I'm on a first name basis now with Austin and Tim and feel that I not only got the best legal representation in Charleston but also made a great pair of friends. I can never thank them enough and I would recommend anyone to use Austin as their lawyer. This is hands down the best law firm in Charleston!!!

Knowledgeable and effective
Mr. Elliott assisted in the defense of my son against serious, criminal charges. He was always accessible and knowledgeable. His professionalism and attention to details helped my son received a second chance from the court. My son has committed himself to taking advantage of the opportunity that was given to him. This second chance would not have been available without the efforts of Austin Elliott. I would highly recommend Austin Elliott and the Kulp Law Firm.

Reckless driving
Austin handled my case perfectly. I only met with him once or twice but I could tell he was very knowledgeable in his field. He was very responsive to all the emails and phone calls I made to him and he was always very reassuring. I came to him with a reckless driving ticket and he was able to have it dropped down to a careless operation ticket. Though it may sound a bit dramatic, Austin really did save my job and record. I would recommend him to anyone in the Charleston area.
