If you have a question about personal injury, auto accidents, workers’ compensation, nursing home neglect, or dangerous pharmaceuticals in South Carolina, I’m your man.
In South Carolina, the designation certified specialist means that an attorney has been certified by the South Carolina Supreme Court and its Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization as possessing sufficient expertise and experience in one of four areas that are recognized for those attorneys to hold themselves out to the public as “specialists”: (1) bankruptcy/debtor-creditor law, (2) employment and labor law, (3) estate planning and probate law, and (4) taxation law. The attorneys at The Jeffcoat Firm Injury Attorneys are not “specialists” in designated areas of the law, and do not claim to be. Rather, Mr. Jeffcoat is providing an illustrative contrastment so that members of the public are aware of The Jeffcoat Firm Injury Attorneys’ practice areas.
Firm founder Michael Jeffcoat takes pride in having built a law firm that embodies his commitment to helping people who have been injured or wronged. After receiving a B.A. degree in Political Economy and Philosophy at Wofford College in 1994, Jeffcoat went straight to the University of South Carolina School of Law. While there, in addition to his studies, he participated in Moot Court, the University’s trial competition, clerked in two U.S. Attorney’s Offices (Columbia and Seattle) and also the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office. Mr. Jeffcoat completed his Juris Doctor degree in 1997.
