A Proud Tradition of Legal Service in South Carolina
Townsend & Thompson, LLP, is a general practice law firm in Laurens County that has been representing South Carolina clients in a wide range of legal practice areas for more than 40 years.
A Brief History of Townsend & Thompson, LLP
In 1971, Richard Townsend was a solo practitioner who had already been practicing since 1965. Attorney Townsend and Thomas J. Thompson, a local attorney who had been serving as a legal assistant in the South Carolina Supreme Court, joined to form Townsend & Thompson, LLP. From their Laurens County office, these attorneys and their associates have been serving everyone from individuals to large corporations and banks ever since.
Richard Townsend, founding attorney, recently passed on after nearly 50 years of legal service in South Carolina. Our firm name and Richard Townsend's legacy are extremely important to us, so we continue to honor this tradition by proudly maintaining the name Townsend & Thompson, LLP.
Since opening our doors more than 45 years ago, we have represented clients in many different types of cases, including:
- Personal injury — such as motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-falls and wrongful death claims
- Probate Matters
- Real estate
- Divorce and family law
- Criminal defense
Word of mouth has been our best salesman. The vast majority of our cases come to us from the referrals and recommendations given by our past clients. Since 1971, the attorneys of Townsend & Thompson, LLP, have built a reputation for:
- Experience: Our attorneys know the local court system, and we are familiar with the local procedures. We even have staff members who have been with us for more than 20 years.
- Efficient representation: We solve our clients' legal problems as effectively and as quickly as possible.
- Communication: We know how important it is for our clients to know what is happening in their cases, so we return calls and inform our clients quickly whenever something changes.
"Our firm is generational. We have handled probate administration matters for the same clients who had us draw up their wills 20 or 30 years ago. Our roots are extremely important to us." | Thomas J. Thompson, founding attorney
