Earlier this month, Yarborough Applegate’s team joined legal leaders from across the state at South Carolina Association for Justice’s (SCAJ) Annual Convention. Partner Douglas E. Jennings was among those invited to present during the three-day event.
Jennings’ presentation focused on obtaining and utilizing forensic cell phone evidence in litigation, specifically in regards to trucking/tractor trailer cases—an area Jennings devotes much of his practice to. The talk was part of the Annual Convention’s Young Lawyers Seminar, of which Yarborough Applegate’s own Liam Duffy is the chair.
Each August, our attorneys seize the opportunity to help advance our profession by leading, teaching, and sharing information from our legal work at the SCAJ Annual Convention. This year, a dozen seminars by leading legal experts were delivered over three days on topics spanning ethics, torts and negligence, workers compensation, employment law, social security, criminal law, and environmental law.
The South Carolina Association for Justice is a member-based organization devoted to protecting the legal rights of the citizens of South Carolina. At Yarborough Applegate, we’re proud to not only be members, but also leaders within the group. In addition to Duffy serving as chair of its Young Lawyers Section, partner David Lail sits on SCAJ’s Board of Governors and last year was nominated to its Honors and Awards Committee.
