I have been a practicing trial attorney for over 30 years since graduating from the University of South Carolina School of Law. I am licensed to practice in both South Carolina (1989) and North Carolina (1996).

Serious Personal Injury - We fous our personal injury practice on serious injury and wrongful death cases that result in permanent injury or catastrophic loss. As a former Registered Nurse (RN), I understand complex injury. And as a former insurance defense lawyer, I understand how adjusters value and negotiate settlements. In addition, I know insurance company tactics as I prepare your case for trial if necessary. Most importantly, every client has my direct mobile number) and email address (). When you need answers or are feeling anxious, I will be there as we go through this ordeal together. 

Criminal Law / DUI / DWI - We focus our firm's criminal practice on DUI, DWI, and felony DUI cases. In criminal cases, the State has the entire burden of proof, and we make sure they can prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If there are problems with their case, we negotiate or try to get your case dismissed. In DUI cases, the penalties for even a first time offense are extremely harsh and have permanent consequences. This is why I have obtained the same training as police on DWI Investigation and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing. Zac Fry is a former SC DUI prosecutor, and Mr. Reeves has 30 years trial experience in both criminal and civil courts. After we review your case, we sit down and go over your options. We answer your questions and give you our advice so that you can make the best decision for you and your family.

We will guide you through child custody, support, and visitation, as well as alimony, and property division issues. Divorce is a process. Let us get you from A to B as peaceably as possible. Always agree where you can but be willing to fight if you have to.

Expert advice
Mr. Reeves is a lifesaver! He went out of his way to direct me on how to get out of a petty ticket free of charge. He offered to take the case for a small fee or give me the steps to handle it myself. I took him up on his offer and everything went exactly as he stated. Give this man a call if you need representation, or just advice.

Honest and professional, best option for your case.
About three years ago I was pulled over for speeding and charged with a first-time offence 0.08 DWI in a small town about 45 minutes from Charlotte, NC. At the time I was a Florida resident and was temporarily in North Carolina for a work project. Having an out of state license only meant more complications to an already delicate subject, so I immediately began looking for the top-rated lawyers in the area. I scheduled meetings with six different law firms and set aside an entire day to interview them, get their opinion on my case, and ultimately decide which would be the best approach forward. I ended up choosing Robert to represent me due to two main reasons which set him apart from the rest: First, my arrest took place over Labor Day weekend which meant that I would have to wait a couple of days until being able to meet lawyers, so I decided to leave voicemails during the holiday so I could fast-track my appointments the next day. When calling Robert’s listed number, it turned out to be his private cell phone, which he answered even on holiday nonetheless. Not only did he answer my call during off hours, he heard my case and provided comfort in my situation at a time when I needed it most. Good client communication is one of the main attributes I looked for when choosing my lawyer, and Robert went above and beyond in providing answers to all of my questions at a personal level of communication, which was kept throughout the entirety of my case (over three years). Secondly, when I first met with Robert, we went through my case and he gave me his honest opinion on the most appropriate course of action. Then, he went ahead and told me a bit about his background, he’s past cases and strategies he would use at trial, but what really sold me on him was the advice that he gave me before leaving his office. He said that “regardless of which lawyer I decided to go with, to always make sure that I get the lawyer that I am paying for”. This is due to the fact that big law firms would take my case and would later hand it off to one of their multiple lawyers, which means I would have no control or knowledge of who is actually representing me, which defeats the purpose of doing my research in finding the best lawyer for my case. I found Robert’s advice to be the most honest and helpful out of all the lawyers I interviewed, something which I actually experienced first-hand in one of the meetings with another firm later that day when I asked the name of the lawyer that would get my case and was not provided with a concrete answer. \ Every case is different, and in my situation, Robert suggested to take it all the way to superior court to a jury trial since according to his experience, my case had plenty of evidence in my favor and had a real shot at winning. I followed Robert’s advice and went to trial, in which Robert did an excellent job in addressing the jury and presenting evidence in my defense. The jury could not come to a decision and was pretty evenly split on a guilty/not guilty verdict which ended in a mistrial. However, thanks to Robert, everything worked out in my favor since his negotiation with the DA led to the dismissal of my DWI charge, and Robert also prevented my license from being suspended due to the speeding infraction. All in all, Robert Reeves is an absolutely outstanding, experienced trial lawyer. With Robert you definitely get what you pay for, and since all cases are different, even if such great results as mine might not be an option, hiring Robert Reeves will definitely ensure the best possible outcome for your case.

Called Mr. Reeves about my first speeding ticket and gave me great advice and was patient with my many questions and nervousness. Assured me that I didn’t need a lawyer for my case and gave me the run down on how to take points off my drivers license so my insurance wouldn’t go up. Clear, concise, and sympathetic. Would my first on my list for help with any legal issues!

The most honest lawyer I have ever come across
Mr. Reeves was the 4th lawyer I spoke to about representing my minor daughter. The first wanted $3k, the second $1,250 and the 3rd $750. Mr. Reeves advised me that He thought we would be fine without a lawyer, gave some advice on what to say and what would likely happen and said to call him back on the day before the hearing if I needed reassurance or refreshing on what to say at the hearing and also to call him after the hearing to “celebrate.” Got to admit we were nervous going into the hearing without a lawyer but he was absolutely right the charge was 100% dismissed. Can’t thank him enough for taking the time to offer his advice and for refusing to be predatory. 10/10 will call him if I ever have any other legal needs!

I got a phone consultation and even though I wasn't able to file my case in SC (I recently move here), the attorney was very polite, helpful and gave me all the information I needed at the moment.

Someone who really cares
Not entirely sure Mr. Reeves' services were going to be needed, he graciously spent time on the phone with my mother and me to go over some questions and concerns to help us determine next steps. He was kind and considerate and really put us at ease. I would recommend him to anyone needed legal guidance.

Speeding ticket
I had a speeding ticket and was looking for an attorney on Avvo to represent me in court. I was out of time and needed support in another state. Robert called right after I made contact on Avvo, and gave me excellent advice. He was transparent and honest and had my best interests. I would definitely use him again.

Highly Recommend
I was charged with a DUI and immediately went for a consultation with Mr. Reeves the following day. Within one week of hiring Mr. Reeves, I got my license back and ultimately saved me from losing my job. Mr. Reeves continued to follow the most aggressive and persistent approach in challenging the charge overall. Based on the circumstantial evidence, I plead guilty to the offense. Having no prior history/run ins with the law prior to this event, Mr. Reeves explained everything to me accordingly and the route we were taking, keeping me updated and the reasoning behind the approach taken. He continued to show compassion and a sincere desire to help me as much as possible throughout the entirety of the case; Mr. Reeves and his partners are NOT looking to turn cases around quickly for increased profit, they are looking to defend their clients at all costs while maintaining an ethical/logical sense of strategy. Fast forward a few months- I messed up again and my DUI was now considered a Level 2 offense with mandatory minimum jail time and heavy fines. Having never been to jail, this terrified me. Mr. Reeves was ultimately able to prevent me from having to serve any jail time, keep my job and reduced my fines tremendously. Had I not chosen Mr. Reeves to defend me, I would be in jail, subsequently unemployed and down a dark road. Mr. Reeves is ultimately tried and true; through his knowledge, integrity, connections, compassion and results.

Second Opinion
I phoned Mr. Reeves for a second opinion consult....his response to my call was immediate. He listened mindfully without judging. Was empathetic, kind, sincere, well-spoken and extremely knowledgeable. I hope I never need this representation again but would absolutely consider him if I did!

These are the guys you need
Robert Reeve and Zach Frye were incredible representation on my legal case. I was a difficult client and they went above and beyond to prove they were working for me. I couldn't be happier with the results of their efforts and would highly recommend them for your legal needs. Without their professional knowledge my life could be in turmoil and they delivered big time.

Top Gun
Attorney Reeves handled a delicate, and somewhat complex, workman's compensation case for me. Given my profession, I had serious reservations. I shouldn't have worried. His remarkable knowledge and expertise in this matter resulted in a favorable settlement with minimal exposure and minimal expenditure of my time. Remarkable!! He is a true professional. Knowledgable, articulate and to the point...yet his soft spoken manner gives you the feeling your dealing with a friend.

Very Professional!
I emailed Mr. Reeves with a few questions after I received a DWI in NC. I live in SC so it made the case a little more confusing. He took the time to call me on a weekend to explain to me what I can and cannot do. Thanks to him I feel more confident with what to expect when it comes to my driving privileges. I recommend Mr. Reeves no matter how big your issue is!

2nd DWI
Unfortunately I had received a 2nd DWI right within the three year window with the DMV. I was given recommendations to call George Laughren, and the phone call went as such, " Sorry man, 2nd dwi your going to jail, fax the ticket to my secretary and we can go from there." After that, I came across Mr. Reeves phone number (which was on a Sunday by the way) his cell phone number no less. I called around 10pm just because I was stressing and needed answers, and Mr. Reeves ACTUALLY answered his phone! Long story short, Mr. Reeves did an excellent job. Not because he lawyer-ed his way in the court room, but because of the guidance he gave me through the hellish ordeal of the court system from start to finish. I asked very specific things, and he gave me very specific answers (I also never went to jail and did not have community service. The fines were minuscule).Any time I called him about my case or if I was stressing over it, he would always answer the phone and understood the stress that I was going through. He still never sugar coated anything which I appreciated. I was never unaware of what was about to happen or could, and he never left me in the dark on the details. Every case is different, but in my situation (which wasn't pretty) he gave me everything I had asked for and more. I HIGHLY recommend Robert Reeves!! I thank you Mr. Reeves and so does my wife!

DWI CASE
Robert Reeves was there from the beginning to end. He and Anthony made this process less difficult for me. They were thorough throughout the process and gave step by step details of my case. I had a difficult case but I felt I received the best end result based on their experience. A DWI is very difficult to deal with but having lawyers who take care of you makes it easier. I would highly recommend them if you want to feel like you are in good hands. Thank you again. ~DS

Phenomenal Experience!
I had a great experience with Robert! Besides being a very knowledgeable attorney, Robert is an incredibly kind person and wonderful to talk to. I called Robert because I needed a lawyer to quickly look at some time-sensitive papers. Unknown to me at the time, the matter was outside of Robert's normal areas of practice. Instead of immediately shuffling me off to another attorney, Robert offered to review my papers and gave me great advice in plain English within 30 minutes! In addition, he refused to let me pay for his time and guidance! I would not hesitate to contact Robert again if I needed his services.
