At Duff, White and Turner, we understand that litigation cannot be avoided in all situations. Our attorneys have experience defending clients in a number of areas, including employment, business, personal injury, construction, premises liability, and a variety of education issues. The DWT attorneys regularly handle cases involving claims of employment discrimination and retaliation relating to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, wrongful termination, and contract and construction disputes. In addition, the Firm defends school districts, higher education institutions and other governmental entities in matters relating to the dismissal of teachers and administrators, tort liability, due process and civil rights. The DWT litigation team includes seasoned trial attorneys and a former law clerk to a trial court judge. These practitioners understand the complex nature of trials and have insight into how decisions are reached.
DWT also has an active appellate practice, handling appeals, petitions and other complex matters in federal and state court. Firm attorneys have appeared before all of the appellate courts in South Carolina, as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit , with the ability to take a case to the United States Supreme Court, if necessary. We believe in the value of focused and persuasive written and oral advocacy and understand the value of these skills to our clients.
Our attorneys make every attempt to resolve disputes, including efforts at mediation, when appropriate.
