William James LaLima, Esq.

 

I have a passion for the law.  It spans every aspect of our lives from before we're born until after we die.  Some say we have too many laws and lawyers, but I firmly believe the American legal system is the best in the world.  Of course, no system is perfect, so we must remain ever vigilant to ensure our legal system keeps pace with the changing times. 
I grew up in Summerville, SC. My father was a police officer in Charleston (more...)

Our office manager.

William Rusty Applegate, Esq. (Retired, of counsel)

 

Mr. Applegate has been representing people in South Carolina for over 40 years. He is an indispensable source of wisdom and experience to our firm. He is "officially" retired, but he still maintains an office next to mine and we confer on cases frequently.

In Memorium: R. Charles Richards (deceased)
Mr. Richards passed away in March 2022. He was a fierce advocate for his clients. While we were separate firms, we shared office space and frequently collaborated on cases together.
