Our lawyers also take an active role in the work of the bar at local, state and national levels. Many of our members are involved in committee work, frequently as chairpersons. Two of our members have served as president of the South Carolina Bar Association, and one was a member, for six years, of the ABA Standing Committee on the Judiciary, which screens all federal judicial candidates.
While we have no formal pro bono program, the firm encourages members to pursue whatever pro bono activities are of interest to them. Examples include the defense of indigent criminal defendants (including murder defendants in capital cases) and representation of abused women and children in family court proceedings. One member was the founder and board chair of the Libra Society, and another member was the board chair of Legal Services of South Carolina, the statewide legal services system.
