August 2018

Thrilled to have been awarded "yard of the quarter" by the West Columbia Beautification Society. Mr. LaLima and his wife, Maria, personally planted each and every flower and maintain the design. We treat our cases like a garden: cultivating and nourishing each individual to yield maximum results. You can find us here most weekends tending to the grounds. We are dedicated to our business and our clients; we strive to be productive, community minded citizens where we believe "actions speak louder than words".

August 2017


We are honored to have WON the Free Times' "Best Law Firm in Columbia" . . . We may be the best for your case, but there are many fantastic lawyers in the midlands. Ask a friend or neighbor who they used and liked (or disliked). There really isn't one "best" law firm ... each case is different and different clients require different services. Still, it is an honor to have been selected by readers as THE BEST!



April 2016:

WE HAVE MOVED! We are now located across the street from our old location. Between "Jarret's Jungle" and the "Ecclectic House" on Sunset Directly across from Senator Joe Wilson's office.  We have renovated a new, environmentally friendly, state of the art building to better serve our clients.  Thank you for all your support over the years (and your patience as we transferred locations).

We were recently victorious in the S.C. Court of Appeals in a child custody case involviing issues of the Uniform Child Custody and Jurisdiction Act. This deals with interstate battles for child custody. (Carrington v. Piegari)



The LaLima Law Firm shares space with R. Charles Richards, Esq. and Rusty Applegate (retired & of counsel). We maintain our professional independence, but frequently work on cases together.


* Financing: After payment of an initial retainer, you may be eligible to make payments on fees. The amount of the retainer depends on many factors and is set during the initial conference.  Costs of the action remain your continued responsibility. The decision to allow payments is made on a case by case basis and depends on your financial situation and on the issues of fairness and justice in your case.
