Firm History

The lawyers at Ballenger, Barth, and Hoefer, L.L.P. have been providing competent, personal and ethical representation for the people of the Pee Dee Region and adjoining counties for a total of almost 100 years. Our lawyers have been extensively engaged in the trials of cases in all South Carolina Courts, state and federal, since the firm's inception in the early 1970s.

Although we handle all types of legal matters, the majority of our litigation practice has involved the handling of personal injury and worker's compensation matters, criminal matters, and family court (custody/divorce) matters. We do not represent big business, insurance companies, and the like. We represent individuals who have been injured, charged with a crime, or are involved in a domestic situation. Our attorneys handle cases for our clients with personal attention, extensive experience, and competence and in accordance with the highest ethical

Our clients come first, and we take great pride in ensuring that each client's case is handled by the most qualified attorney, with the assistance of our skilled legal staff. When you retain our firm, you can be assured that your attorney will be thoroughly familiar with your case and will be in a position to answer your questions in a timely fashion.

Our attorneys routinely represent clients in the Pee Dee Region of South Carolina, including the cities located in the counties of Florence, Marion, Darlington, Chesterfield, Dillon, Marlboro, Sumter, Williamsburg, and Horry. Our personal injury practice is statewide, while our federal courts practice is generally limited to the Florence and Columbia divisions.

Additionally, our attorneys have been consistently involved in the presentation of many legal seminars, the providing of pro bono services, and many civic community and charitable events.
