I am Andy Arnold.  I am a litigator, who has practiced law for 30 years.  Helping people fight back against those who have hurt them, fired them, or treated them unfairly is my passion.

Background

I am a Furman University graduate.  I graduated from law school at the University of South Carolina in 1992. After two years with a large labor law defense firm, I left to start my own practice.  My practice began as an employment and business litigation practice, which has represented plaintiffs and defendants in federal and state courts.  However, I have litigated all sorts of cases, including nursing home neglect cases, defamation claims, consumer fraud cases under the unfair trade practice act, fraud, and breach of contract claims.  I handle non-compete cases, business disputes/business divorce cases, and serious personal injury cases.

I have also argued appeals to both the South Carolina Supreme Court, the South Carolina Court of Appeals, the US District Court and the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.

I offer litigation services to individuals and businesses.    In addition to being a lawyer, I am also a certified mediator.

Fantastic Lawyer!!!
Andy Arnold represented me in a 3 year, highly complex business dispute. The case ended up in a 5 day trial and we won hands down. Andy's attention to detail, grasp of business law and litigation skills in the courtroom are unrivaled. I would recommend Andy Arnold to anyone needing a skilled attorney.

Strong advocate for his client
Andy represented me when a previous employer, a major corporation, sued me individually. I had no idea how to handle this situation. Andy offered sound legal advice, and knew exactly how to respond to each step in the process. He was very patient with me and always accessible to reply to any concerns I had. After seeing him in action at a deposition, it is obvious he loves the law and will adamantly represent his client and their best interests. I highly recommend Andy and his team.
