"A True Community Law Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on September 09, 2017

I think they need to send some of the older lawyers and staff to a seminar or two about joining the law community in 2017, since a lot of their ways are stuck in the Fifties.

Pros : Turner Padget is a firm that specializes in South Carolina law cases, so they have a lot of loyal clients built up over their long history. The firm is doing well and is attracting good new lawyers and a relatively steady flow of clients. There is good collaboration and teamwork between the various divisions and five offices throughout the state.
Cons : Padget Graham has been around since 1930 and is really set in some of the old ways of practicing law. They're still growing into learning about all of the newer structures and approaches to modern law, and innovative styles and approaches don't fare well with them.
