Attorney Nathan Hughey

Mount Pleasant, SC (Law Firm Newswire) August 31, 2019 – Charleston Business Magazine recently honored Nathan Hughey of the Hughey Law Firm with its highest award of distinction for lawyers. The magazine named Hughey as one of the “Legal Elite of the Lowcountry,” reflecting his standing as one of the Palmetto State’s preeminent personal injury lawyers.

The award is particularly meaningful for Hughey because his colleagues in the Lowcountry legal community selected him to receive the honor. It’s all the more meaningful because Hughey’s law partner in the Hughey Law Firm, Stuart Hudson, received the same recognition from his Charleston-area peers last year.

What It Means to be a Legal Elite of the Lowcountry

Fundamentally, being named a “Legal Elite” means earning the respect and admiration of fellow Lowcountry lawyers. Nathan Hughey garnered this distinction by serving clients with complete dedication without once sacrificing his commitment to collegiality and fair dealing with his fellow attorneys. A former President of the Charleston County Bar Association said of Nathan:

“Our local and Statewide Bar would be well served if there were more attorneys whose personal and professional lives exhibited the high standards of practice and ethics as I have come to know to be the hallmark of Mr. Hughey’s life.”

It takes a special lawyer to earn that kind of praise. In selecting Nathan as a Legal Elite of the Lowcountry, Charleston Business Magazine acknowledged that the quote above reflects the opinion of a wide swath of the local legal community.

Nathan Hughey was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina. He graduated from the College of Charleston in 1996 and received his law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2000.

The firm recently crossed a milestone threshold of having achieved jury verdicts and settlements totaling $115 million since its founding—an astounding number that speaks to Nathan’s, and his firm’s, dedication to going the extra mile for clients afflicted with catastrophic injuries and tragedies.

Hughey Law Firm has garnered particular acclaim for its representation of elderly victims of nursing home abuse and neglect, an all-too-common problem in South Carolina care facilities that Nathan fights against day-in, day-out. The firm has also achieved multi-million dollar recoveries on behalf of car accident victims and their estates, as well as for victims of accidents on worksites and in vacation homes, among others.
