Malcolm Crosland grew up in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, a few blocks from Charleston’s historic beaches, and spent his youth fishing, hunting and surfing on its then-empty beaches. Born to a family of attorneys, he graduated from the University of South Carolina for both his under graduate degrees as well as the University’s School of Law. In 1986 and immediately joined the Steinberg Law Firm.
Malcolm was drawn to the firm’s reputation for representing working people and protecting injured people and their families. His practice is based in our downtown office, but Malcolm travels throughout the state to meet with clients and help them fight for their rights.
Recognized year after year by Best Lawyers in America and SuperLawyers, Malcolm holds an A/V (the highest level) rating with Martindale-Hubbell for his professional and ethical standards. He’s a past president of Injured Workers Advocates, the only statewide organization for attorneys dedicated to the protection of the rights of injured workers. He has served on the Board of Directors for Workers Injury Law and Advocacy Group (WILG), a national organization whose mission is to protect the rights of working people in the United States.
He has also served on a number of charitable boards and law-related committees, including the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina. In addition to litigating for people injured by the negligence of others, Crosland represents working men and women before the SC Workers Compensation Commission and the U.S. Department of Labor. Malcolm is responsible for numerous published appellate decisions in both State and Federal courts.
When Malcolm isn’t practicing law, he can be found in one of five places: enjoying time with his family, fishing the waters around Charleston, surfing, cooking or golfing.
His strong work ethic and passion for ensuring that the justice system works for the hard working men and women of the state makes him the right lawyer for you.
