Three Reasons Why You Should Hire Our Lawyers

We practice primarily in three fields – family law, criminal defense (including DUI), and personal injury claims. We’ve been asked why we don’t focus on just one area of the law as some other lawyers do. Here’s why:

01

Many
Advantages

Because we’ve handled various cases, we’re prepared to handle any legal “curve balls” thrown at you. For example, as DUI lawyers, when an accident involves a drunk driver, we know how to prove whether someone was under the influence. Another example is when a divorcing spouse alleges criminal domestic violence, our criminal defense experience comes into play. In other words, legal diversity has many advantages.

02

One
Law Firm

You don’t find a new accountant every time you have a tax issue or a new mechanic whenever you need your car fixed. With our law firm, you don’t have to find a new lawyer whenever you have a legal issue or question. Many long-time clients have hired us for divorce issues, criminal charges, and car wrecks. They don’t have to go through a new intake process with a new law firm. They call our firm where we know them by name.

03

Valuable
Relationships

We’ve appeared before almost every judge in Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties. We’ve dealt with lawyers from almost every area of the law, so we know who the players are in the legal community. Our experience has also led us to work with doctors, psychologists, realtors, appraisers, builders, accountants, law enforcement, prosecutors, business owners, and many other professions.

We Take Excellent Care of Our Clients

This firm is a great resource to have at your disposal. I spoke to them about my situation and I left feeling confident and ready to resume my normal life again. I spoke to Stephan, he was very knowledgeable. I cannot emphasize more that I believe this team sincerely cares about the people they serve. Thankful for these legal wizards.

Niccole Gillitzer

Finding the right legal team can be difficult and daunting. I strongly recommend this firm, because they were very proactive with my case. Their kindness, compassion, understanding, and wealth of knowledge is second to none. Thank you . . . to the entire Futeral & Nelson firm.

Scott Hammond

Compassionate, professional, and honest. Fantastic attorneys and paralegals should you ever need one. They make sense of unfortunate situations and provide family-like representation, and their billing is more than honest and straightforward. A gem in the world of law.
