Floats, Cases, and Final Touches

A Busy Summer at Snell Law

I hope everyone had an excellent Fourth of July this year. If you happened to attend the Lexington County Peach

Festival, you may have seen a few members of the team there. It was a really fun day, and seeing all of the creative floats has inspired us to create our own for next year. If you have an idea, you can submit it to caitlyn@snelllaw.com. We’re open

to any suggestions, even if they poke a little fun at us, so don’t be shy in sending your submissions.

“A lot of times, people don’t even want to go through the trouble of approaching the media after an exoneration because they’re just so worn down by the end of the trial. ”

As relaxing as the Peach Festival was, we’ve been getting even more satisfaction from the work we’ve been doing here at the office. We recently opened case file No. 4,400, which is a reminder of just how far we’ve come since I opened up as a one-man shop in 2004. Last month, we were able to win our clients over $1 million in personal injury claims. I’m not certain, but I think that’s a record for us, and there were definitely a few high-fives around the office when we hit that number.

Finally, and hopefully for the last time, I want to give a little update on our move. We’re down to

We’ve also been experiencing success with our criminal trials. One thing I’ll say is that despite having

putting the finishing touches on the place, such as parking lots and landscapes. I’ve definitely had plenty of sun this summer, though a construction site isn’t quite a trip to the lake. Nevertheless, I’m so excited to get into our new home. If you can’t find us at the old office, we’ll be at 123 Harmon Street in downtown. It’s diagonally across from

thousands of cases, there are still events that manage to take me by surprise. We recently defended someone whose arrest was a big deal in the local news. Every day, it seemed I would read about this guy, with the media’s quick potshots at him. Once he was acquitted, of course, the stories were nowhere to be found. We even had to write up a press release to make sure this person’s name was cleared — not only in the eyes of the court, but for the public as well. I guess I should be used to it at this point, but I wish we were all as quick to admit we were wrong as we are to point an accusing finger. A lot of times, people don’t even want to go through the trouble of approaching the media after an exoneration because they’re just so worn down by the end of the trial. Due process exists in the courts, and it should exist in the eyes of the public.

the old mill, in the lot where the golf cart dealership used to be. Let’s hope that next month, I’ll be reporting from the new office. Until then, I hope everyone enjoys what’s left of their South Carolina summer.
