South Carolina Litigation & Appeals Lawyers

Experienced Litigation Attorneys

The attorneys of the Gilreath Law Firm, P.A., have a long and successful record of resolving disputes and protecting the interests of clients through negotiation, arbitration, litigation and appeal.

We are known as successful and aggressive courtroom litigators who do not hesitate to take a case to trial, if we believe it is in our client's best interest. We are proud of the results we have achieved, and continue to pursue positive resolutions to disputed issues in our current litigation.

Attorney Jim Gilreath has represented clients in state, federal and appellate courts in North Carolina and South Carolina throughout the southeast, and in U.S. Tax Court. He has twice appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court.

We represent clients in a broad range of civil litigation matters, including:

  • Commercial litigation: Representing businesses in ownership disputes, contract litigation, real estate, employment and other business concerns.
  • Securities arbitration: Representing investors who are the victims of securities fraud.
  • Tax litigation and financial fraud: Including victims of abusive tax shelters.
  • Workers' compensation: We represent employees seeking compensation for work-related injuries.
  • Estate and probate litigation: Including will contests and inheritance disputes.
  • Class actions: Representing groups of plaintiffs who have been similarly harmed.
  • Professional malpractice: When lawyers and other licensed professionals fail to uphold the standards of their professions and clients suffer because of it, we seek damages on behalf of the injured.
  • Product liability: When a dangerous product harms consumers, we hold manufacturers and other negligent parties responsible.
  • Appeals: We are persistent in our commitment to clients and have achieved positive results at all levels of appeal.

We have obtained many millions of dollars in compensation for our clients against formidable adversaries including top-flight litigators in New York, Washington, Atlanta, Charlotte and Chicago — some of the biggest firms in the U.S. We know how they operate, and we work to anticipate and counter their strategies.

The Resources Required for Success

Our law firm has the resources and experience to capably handle large, complex cases, including multi-district litigation. In one case involving Workers' Compensation, for example, motions and discovery lasted over four years and produced more than one million pages of documentation.

Although we prepare each case for trial, we take proactive steps to resolve issues outside of court. Our legal team is skilled in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as arbitration and mediation.
