Jul 1, 2019

South Carolina Attorney,
Nathan Hughey, Esq.

Charleston, SC (Law Firm Newswire) July 1, 2019 – Local attorney Nathan Hughey and the firm he founded, Hughey Law Firm, are proud to announce they have recovered $120 million in jury verdicts and settlements since the firm’s founding in 2007. This astounding tally reflects the firm’s growing and well-earned reputation for tackling the most complex personal injury matters on behalf of some of the Palmetto State’s most catastrophically injured citizens. It is a milestone few law firms ever reach, much less in just 12 years.

How They Did It

When Nathan Hughey founded Hughey Law Firm in 2007, he had arrived at a crossroads. Hughey spent the first few years of his legal career representing the defense side of personal injury matters, protecting large businesses and their insurers from the consequences of their employees’ conduct. He had served his clients well and honorably, but he knew in his heart he wanted to be on the “other side of the table,” representing innocent victims of accidents and tragedies. He opened Hughey Law Firm to serve that mission.

In 2011, partner Stuart Hudson joined the practice, and several years later Brad Banyas came aboard. As the firm grew, so did the size and complexity of the matters it handled, as well as the dollar values of the settlements and verdicts it recovered for its clients. Among some the firm’s most notable results to date are a $5.425 million settlement on behalf of a man paralyzed in a truck accident, a $3.375 million recovery on behalf of the estate of a man who escaped from a group home and was killed by a drunk driver, and a $1.625 million settlement on behalf of a woman injured when a dock collapsed at a vacation home in North Myrtle Beach.

Where They’re Headed

With each passing day, Nathan Hughey and the Hughey Law Firm continue to earn the praise and respect of their peers, adversaries, and clients. Individually and collectively, Hughey and the firm have received recognition from some of the most prestigious legal publishers and trade groups in the profession. Among other honors, as a result of his numerous multi-million dollar results for clients, Hughey has been admitted into membership in the prestigious Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an elite national group of attorneys.

As its reputation grows, the Hughey Law Firm stands poised and ready to handle South Carolina’s most challenging personal injury matters.
