Your Law Firm In Camden, SC

Fifty years is a long time, but that's how long we have been meeting the legal needs of families and individuals in and around Kershaw County, South Carolina.

We weren't always Speedy, Tanner, Atkinson & Cook, LLC. We were originally Murkison & West, founded by John C. West, who went on to become governor of South Carolina. Another former partner, Ken Holland, was elected to the United States Congress.

We've had our share of celebrated attorneys, but they would all tell you our practice is rooted in the everyday legal problems people in our area have. We work to address some of the most common but most anxiety-producing situations:

1. Obtaining Compensation When You Have Been Wronged

You have heard the word tort. A tort is any kind of wrong that has been done to you. In personal injury law, everyone has a chance to stand up and demand compensation — for car accident injuries, for injuries suffered away from home, for defective products that harm you instead of products that help you. You are entitled to redress, and Speedy, Tanner, Atkinson & Cook can help you get it — at no upfront cost to you.

2. Getting Arrested

Almost anyone can get arrested for DUI or drug possession today. If you carry prescription medicines without the prescription label, you can be arrested. If you got a DUI years ago and get another one today, you may be charged as a multiple offender, with harsh penalties, or if you have had just one glass of wine with dinner and are pulled over on the way home you can be charged with DUI.

That's why it's so important to work with a criminal defense firm that knows the law, knows the courts, and knows how to minimize the damage of your arrest.

3. Going Through A Difficult Divorce

Many people, at the onset of the divorce process, are already discouraged and distressed. They feel like they have failed, and now they fear losing custody of their kids. This is the time when you need an experienced, capable family lawyer to take charge and energetically represent your interests. Speedy, Tanner, Atkinson & Cook, LLC, has earned successful outcomes for many hundreds of families. We can help your family, too.
