South Carolina Association for Justice’s 2023 Annual Convention brought trial attorneys from across the state together for three days of legal seminars and professional networking on Hilton Head Island.
We are thrilled to announce that Liam Duffy was named the South Carolina Bar’s 2022–2023 Young Lawyer of the Year, which recognizes dedication and service to the legal profession and their community.
The list, compiled each year by Super Lawyers magazine, honors attorneys via a patented multiphase selection process. It recognizes a mere 5 percent of attorneys in each state.

The seminar was devoted to sharing and collaborating on strategies for discovery, depositions, and trial and included a star-studded lineup of trial lawyers recruited by Duffy from across South Carolina and the country.
