About me

I am W. Andrew (Andy) Arnold.  I am a litigator, who has practiced law for 23 years.  Helping people fight back against those who hurt them, fire them or treat them unfairly is my passion.

I am a Furman University graduate.  I graduated law school from 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 noncompete 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 Appealis, the US Ditrict 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.
