We have not found any instances of professional misconduct for this lawyer.
I have been practicing law for nearly 30 years, primarily handling workers comp and personal injury cases for injured persons. I am licensed in State and Federal Courts in South Carolina and Maryland.
During my last year in law school, and immediately afterwards, I served as law clerk fo the Chief Administrative Judge for the Seventh Judicial Circuit in Maryland, before moving to South Carolina. For the past 19 years, I have served as the South Carolina Workers Compensation Panel member for the Professional Hockey Players Association, representing hockey players in South Carolina in injury claims. I have served as an adjunct law professor at both the Citadel and Charleston School of Law, teaching legal research and writing, oral advocacy and a course on Law and Society, which I developed. For many years, I served as counsel by appointment from the State for people involuntarily committed at their initial hearings.
After running my own firm for 10 years in Charleston, I joined the Joye Law Firm to open and manage their first branch office in Myrtle Beach, where I am currently the managing attorney. I have handled cases throughout South Carolina, focusing primarily on workers comp and injury cases. In 2015, I was elected to the House of Delegates of the South Carolina Bar, for the Fifteenth Circuit. In 2017, I was elected to the Board of Governors of the South Carolina Bar, Region III for a three year term.
I still enjoy the challenges and rewards of the practice of law and look forward to many more years of helping those injured at work or by the negligence of others.
