Why Hire a Local Lawyer

Why Should You Hire a Local Myrtle Beach Attorney?

When you need legal services you want an attorney who is conveniently located, knows your community, and is familiar with local banking and lending requirements, local closing issues, and the circuit and federal courts with jurisdiction over those issues. The skilled attorneys and staff at DesChamps Law Firm have served the real estate, civil litigation and corporate law needs of business people and professionals of Horry and Georgetown counties for more than 35 years. We have strong ties to the local business community and a long history of successful legal practice.


Legal issues are not only intricate but the solving involve knowledge of the local practices, rules, regulations, and requirements of the local lenders, title companies, recording offices, permitting agencies, and courts. Therefore, you need a local attorney close to the transaction.

Knowledge of the Grand Strand – Myrtle Beach community

Every case is unique and a big factor is the community where the issue arose. Your community has unique local laws, history, and trends. An attorney from another jurisdiction cannot know many of the local factors that could affect your case. A strong knowledge of the local community enables a local attorney to see all the angles that make your case unique and to make more informed decisions on how to handle it.

Familiarity with the local courts

Every lawyer in South Carolina should know the rules and procedures of the circuit and federal courts. But individual clerks often have their own unique rules. Individual judges, may have differing procedural rules governing the cases before them. If your attorney does not follow these rules, it could delay or even affect the outcome of your case. When you hire a local attorney, you can be confident that he or she will know the intricacies of the local court system. From knowing the local rules and procedures to being familiar with courthouse staff, a local attorney has the knowledge necessary to pursue your issues in the most efficient way possible. Because a local law firm is familiar with the local judges, they know how to present your case in the manner most persuasive to a particular judge.
