Your Steps


An Inviolable Trust

When you’re in need of legal help or counsel, you’re looking for a lawyer you can trust, a law firm with the experience to protect and defend you, and an experience that gives you peace of mind. We understand that. We understand the pressures you’re under in your day to day life, and that a legal question or legal problem can be enormously stressful.

We Clarify Your Legal Position and Choices

At McLeod Fraser & Cone you will find a team of lawyers of unquestionable integrity and professionalism, with a breadth and depth of experience that can clarify your options, recommend a course of action, and protect and defend you if it comes to that.

With a Professionalism Worthy of the US Supreme Court

You will not be pressured into services you do not need. We are a professional law firm, committed to our community with deep roots and a history almost a century long. Some of our attorneys have been accepted to present a case to the highest court in the America, the US Supreme Court. We have a magistrate on our team; a former South Carolina representative and senator. Two of our attorneys have been or are currently city prosecutors.

We Succeed when Your Rights are Protected

Our success is based on succeeding in protecting your legal rights and resolving your legal problems and concerns. This is possible not only because of our strong team of attorneys, but also because of the sacred trust that we honor with our clients.


The worst thing you can do is to face a real legal issue alone.

You may ask a friend or loved one for advice but in the end, unless they practice law, it is actually like asking your favorite restaurateur whether or not you should have surgery.
