I'm constantly asked some variation of whether I like being a lawyer. And my answer is always the same. I love being a lawyer. Both of my parents are pastors, and over the years I have watched them counsel and guide countless members of our church congregation through difficult times. The importance of being there for people in their time of need is a principle that I learned from my parents at a young age. And it is now one of the core principles of my law firm. Whether you have been injured in a car accident, hurt at work, are facing criminal charges, or going through a custody dispute, the legal process can be intimidating. Adding to this fear and anxiety, you likely do not know what to do next or how to assert your legal rights. That is what I am here for. At Bailey Law Firm, our job is to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, guide you through the process and assert your legal rights. While listening to your concerns and answering your questions, I'm strategically analyzing all of the facts and circumstances of your case to put together a plan of action that ensures you receive the best possible results in your given situation. Every case that my law firm takes is a chance to repair and improve the lives of my clients. That is why I'm in the office before many lawyers wake up. That is why I work late into the evening on weekdays and dedicate my Sunday afternoon to my clients' cases.
When it comes to credentials and experience, I have my fair share of accolades:
Because I wanted to ensure that I would be in the best position possible to serve my clients, I worked my tail off in law school, eventually graduating Cum Laude and in the top 15% of my graduating class. At the age of 28 I was named one of the Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Organization, and named one of the Best and Brightest 35 and Under by the Columbia Business Monthly Magazine. Prior to founding Bailey Law Firm, I worked with some of the nation's most renowned trial lawyers at one of South Carolina's most prestigious law firms. I also gained invaluable insight on litigation while working on several complex civil and criminal cases during my time serving as a Judicial Extern to the Honorable Chief Judge Brian A. Jackson who was appointed to the federal bench by President Barack Obama. I could go on to list more awards and accomplishments that I have received, but this page is not about how great I am, but rather what Bailey Law Firm can do for you. I encourage you to take a look at our goggle reviews to see some of the great work that we have done for our clients. I work hard for each and every one of my clients to earn and maintain their trust. I go the extra mile to meet our clients' needs. Even making home visits to sit down and talk with my clients and their families if necessary. When I'm not fighting for my clients, I am likely traveling across the country attending legal education seminars to stay abreast of the latest legal trends. I also dedicate countless hours to ensure that the least of those in our community have access to the information, resources, and opportunities that more affluent members have. I serve on the Board of Directors for the Compass Community Development Corporation, whose mission is to provide the community with educational, economic and enrichment opportunities, and The Talented Tenth, whose focus is retaining minority talent in the Columbia, South Carolina area. I also represent the indigent pro bono through my work with the South Carolina Access to Justice Commission and volunteer at my church, Right Direction Church International, where I am also a member of the Board of Directors.
