Many other firms retain Mr. Hughey on a regular basis to assist them in complex civil litigation and wrongful death matters.

Mr. Hughey has handled numerous complex civil cases, including many wrongful death cases. He has handled many civil trials. He has argued before various state and federal courts in South Carolina and has argued before the South Carolina Supreme Court.

As I have come to know Nate Hughey, he has become my primary choice for association in matters involving civil litigation outside of my particular practice area. I am totally comfortable in trusting my clients to Mr. Hughey’s representation. Not only does my personal experience confirm his high level of [knowledge] and ethical handling of such matters, the feedback I have received from my clients also confirms the same. Based upon such background, it is without reservation that I can attest to Mr. Hughey’s legal abilities and high ethical standards which he so vigilantly maintains while representing his clients.” – A Past President of the Charleston County Bar Association.

I have witnessed, on numerous occasions, Mr. Hughey contributes his time and financial resources to individuals in need and community projects in the Charleston area. Mr. Hughey has selflessly given up his time to help others who are in need. I am also aware that Mr. Hughey has extended Pro Bono legal services to persons unable to afford representation.” – A Past President of the Charleston County Bar Association.

Some of these settlements and verdicts were obtained while they were employed with other firms and some were obtained in connection with other firms. This list should not be considered as a description or characterization of the quality of the firm’s service or a guarantee of a specific result. Every case is different and must be evaluated on its own merit.
