Alexander “Alec” Hogsette serves clients in personal injury matters such as car accidents, tractor-trailer collisions, premises liability, workers compensation, and nursing home neglect/abuse. His practice is focused on helping the injured to get the recovery they deserve. No matter the opposition, Alec is a skilled trial lawyer and his approach to each client is the same—to build the strongest case for trial. He is compassionate and understands that his clients have often experienced a life-changing accident and need an attorney to support them through a difficult time. He prides himself on establishing a personal relationship with his clients and counsels them through each step of their claim.

Alec’s passion for advocacy began during an internship with a Federal District Court judge in Charleston, South Carolina during law school and continued to grow while he worked full-time for a circuit court judge following law school. For nearly a decade, he has further developed his trial and advocacy skills by litigating cases all over South Carolina for large insurance defense firms. Spending years defending against personal injury claims provided Alec with the opportunity to analyze and learn first-hand how an insurance company approaches a lawsuit—an invaluable experience.

Alec is an active member in for the South Carolina Bar on both a state and local level. Since 2016, he has served as an ambassador to the South Carolina Bar Foundation, an organization that promotes justice for all by funding legal access programs and education. Currently, he is also the 12th judicial circuit representative for the Young Lawyers Division of the South Carolina Bar, the Secretary of the Florence County Bar Association, and an executive board member for the Florence Symphony Orchestra. Additionally, he has led seminars for lawyers and the community in our state capital and at Florence-Darlington Technical College. He was recently named one of the Top 40 Under 40 Civil Plaintiff Trial Lawyers in South Carolina by The National Trial Lawyers. This honor is given to only a select group of lawyers for their superior skills and qualifications in the field. Membership in this exclusive organization is by invitation only and is limited to the top 40 attorneys in each state or region who have demonstrated excellence and have achieved outstanding results in their careers in either civil plaintiff or criminal defense law.

In Alec’s free time he likes to spend time with his wife (a Florence native), Ashley Hogsette and son Whit (2).
