Over 100 years ago, Randolph Murdaugh started a general practice law firm in the small town of Hampton, South Carolina devoted to serving the legal needs of individuals and small businesses.
Since that time, our lawyers have served our communities as solicitor of the 14th Judicial Circuit for eighty-six years and, for over seventy years, represented the members of the Palmetto Electric Cooperative. By advocating for our clients we have brought about positive changes in the railroad, trucking, automotive, and agricultural industries, which have enhanced safety and helped prevent harm and injuries.
The Firm Randolph Murdaugh started as a sole practitioner in 1910 has grown to a seventeen lawyer law firm with offices in three counties. Now, more than 100 years since our inception, we remain true to our roots by providing sound legal counsel for individuals, farmers, and small businesses in our communities and throughout South Carolina.
