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.
Legislation currently pending before South Carolina’s General Assembly would fundamentally alter our state’s civil justice system and make it harder for innocent victims to pursue justice and be made whole. Our firm is closely watching Senate Bill 533, and in the most recent issue of SCAJ’s Justice Bulletin, Yarborough Applegate attorney Perry Buckner explores what it means for victims.
Just a few months into 2023, our team has already been on the ground at events around the state. Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to.
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.

Yarborough Applegate attorney Liam Duffy continues his thought leadership amongst trial lawyers in his latest published article, “The Golden Rule in Opening Statement and Closing Argument: What It Is and What It Isn’t.”

While many programs typically highlight the great victories won in the courtroom, Dissecting a Trial Loss focused instead on lessons learned from losing a case at trial—or, in other words, learning lessons the hard way.
Please join us in congratulating Partner David Lail for being reelected to the South Carolina Association for Justice (SCAJ) Board of Governors for a second term, as well as being elected to serve on the SCAJ Executive Committee.
The organization’s motto, “Advocates for Fairness Under the Law,” illustrates the simple mission of trial lawyers serving those who they have sworn to protect.
