Who We Are, What We Do

Serving the Lowcountry since 1985 from our office on Hilton Head Island, we have dedicated our practice to representing clients in personal injury and wrongful death cases. Today, we have expanded our reach throughout the Lowcountry with an office in Beaufort. Whether your injury is the result of an automobile or truck accident, premises liability, injury on-the-job, or other accident, we can help you get full and fair compensation, including pursuing workers compensation and insurance bad faith claims when necessary.

Our law firm has experienced trial lawyers and savvy negotiators. We know how to fully investigate your injury, negotiate with insurance companies and other at-fault parties, and make sure your claim is fully and properly valued. This is particularly important in cases involving brain, spinal cord, and other injuries that require long-term care and medical attention.
