About Danny

Learn Danny’s areas of practice.

Born October 4, 1952 in Anderson, South Carolina, Danny graduated from Furman University in 1977 and Atlanta Law School in 1980.  He served as a Federal Law Clerk for the Honorable G. Ross Anderson, Jr. from 1980-1981 for the District of South Carolina.  Desiring to become a trial lawyer in civil and criminal trials, Danny became a criminal investigator from 1982-1987.  During those years he worked on and solved murder, rape, and violent felony crimes against children.  He also planned and directed a Special Crimes Unit covering Anderson and Oconee counties in South Carolina, with the help of several state and federal law enforcement agencies, state social services, and Circuit Solicitor.  The Unit was dedicated to the arrest and prosecution of persons committing sex crimes against children.

 

In 1987 hoping to gain valuable trial experience, Danny became an Assistant District Attorney in the Augusta Judicial Circuit, prosecuting 40 felony jury trials in one year.  In 1988, Danny entered private practice with the Augusta firm of Fleming, Blanchard and Bonner where he tried a variety of criminal and civil jury trials for over 11 years.  After a short time in private practice, Danny won his first million dollar civil case; other six and seven figure verdicts and settlements followed, and a few years later Danny received a civil jury verdict of 2.8 million dollars.  He has won large settlements and verdicts in South Carolina, Oklahoma, and Georgia.  

 

On April 1, 1999, Danny established Durham Law Firm at 2350 Washington Road in Augusta, Georgia.  In August 2018 Durham Law Firm expanded our practice to include Family Law and relocated to 2560 Trade Center Drive in Evans, Georgia.

 

For the past 31 years, Danny has civilly prosecuted hundreds of common carrier/motor carrier cases, thus gaining valuable knowledge and insight into this specialty area of negligence law which governs professional drivers and the trucking industry in general.  He keeps up with this specialty area of the law through numerous seminars and workshops.  Since these cases often result in horrific damages to persons or death, they require an added level of expertise to properly handle all aspects of liability (fault) issues and damage issues, such as: punitive and special damages, lost income, past, present, and future disabilities, including brain and spinal injuries just to name a few.

 

Danny and his wife, Vicki, reside in Columbia County with their army of terriers.  Together they have four sons.  They are the grandparents of six precious grandchildren.  Danny and Vicki attend Whole Life Ministries.

Hire him
Just over 2 years ago I contacted Danny about representing my 15 year old son in Superior Court for 3 felony counts (aggravated child molestation, aggravated sodemy, and child molestation of his younger sister). You cannot imagine the pain and confusion our family was suffering at the time. We did not know where to turn or what to do next. Danny’s advice in the initial free consultation was sound, experienced, and straight to the point. His fee was more than what we had, but we worked hard to come up with the money because we knew he was who we wanted to represent our son. After we retained his services he introduced us to Melissa. Melissa was sympathetic to our situation and was clearly as well experienced as Danny was. Together, her and Danny developed a clear strategy that we should follow and consulted us on what we should do step by step. The knowledge those two attorneys exhibited to us as a team assured us consistently time and time again that we had made the right choice by hiring them. They worked tirelessly to get the case transferred back to juvenile court and stuck with us throughout the entire process keeping us well informed, answering all of our questions, and even once contacting me from home while caring for her sick child to answer some unimportant questions pertaining to the status of my son’s case (which took 2 years to get resolved). All the work they did for us was a flat charge and never once did they ever ask for another penny. In the end, our son was transferred to juvenile court where he got a fair sentence instead of the 75+ years he was facing in superior court. A+ attorneys that you will not regret hiring. Although no attorney can promise exceptional results, I can say without any resolve that that these two attorneys will work hard to get you the results you desire within reason and remain honest throughout the process about what you can expect from them without blurring the truth just to take your money. Thank you both!

Excellent Attorney
Danny Durham provided my family with top flight representation after my father was killed in a traffic accident involving a tractor trailer. He and his staff were knowledgeable, hard working, and persistent. They did not rest until we were satisfied. I would highly recommend the Durham Firm and Danny Durham personally to anyone who has been harmed or lost a loved one in a tractor trailer accident.
