We are a small, Columbia, South Carolina law firm dedicated to helping you navigate life's real problems.

While the phone book is filled with ads for lawyers ready to assist you with cases of "serious personal injury" most of us thankfully will never be faced with such problems. However, we all face problems as consumers in the marketplace regularly. Problems with banks, credit reports, mortgage lenders and insurance companies. The list goes on. Unfortunately, it seems sometimes like the only lawyers who deal in these issues are the ones representing the banks and insurance companies.

We are different.

We do not represent banks, lenders, credit reporting agencies, auto manufacturers, or debt collectors. Rather, we represent the consumers with disputes against them. People just like you.
