What we do & who we serve
The Biering Law Firm, P.C., serves individuals facing serious personal injuries, criminal charges, and family court dilemmas. We serve clients in Berkeley County, Charleston County, Dorchester County, and Orangeburg County. The Firm has successfully served on Class Counsel Team for a nationwide class action that resulted significant recoveries for many South Carolina minority farmers.
If you or a loved one has been hurt because of another’s negligence, recklessness, or wrongdoing, you should not have to bear the costs of your recovery. Personal injury claims seek to compensate injury victims for economic damages, such as medical expenses and lost wages, as well as less tangible damages, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress. Chris has extensive experience representing clients in personal injury claims involving:
- Car wrecks
- Slip and falls (premises liability)
- On-the-job injuries
- Dog bites
- Defective products
What you do in the days immediately following an accident can have a dramatic effect on the outcome of your claim. With strong legal counsel on your side, you have the best chance of holding responsible parties accountable for their actions.
If you have been arrested or face criminal charges, your first move should be to call an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Do not make any statements without counsel present to protect your rights. We have defended clients against a range of charges, from the most serious felonies to misdemeanors, including but not limited to:
- Armed robbery
- Criminal sexual conduct
- Trafficking of illicit drugs
- Criminal domestic violence
- Assault and battery
- Grand larceny
- Theft and other property crimes
- Felony driving under the influence
- Driving under the influence (DUI, DUAC, DWI)
- Juvenile delinquency
- Possession of cocaine, marijuana, and methamphetamine (meth)
- Illegal possession of alcohol
- Illegal possession of prescription medications
- Financial fraud
The criminal justice system is often intimidating for defendants; however, an advocate with experience and integrity can help you fight the charges brought against you, and maximize the opportunity for dismissal, acquittal, or reduced sentencing.
Many clients facing divorce simply want to put the proceedings behind them as quickly as possible, so that they may start anew. However, the manner in which your divorce is handled determines your family and your financial future. Knowledgeable and supportive legal counsel is essential to ensure your rights and interests are protected, now and in the years to come. We have experience assisting clients in the following matters:
- Contested divorce
- Child support
- Non-contested matters
Too often, people place their relationships with their children, accumulated wealth, and liberty in the hands of the South Carolina Family Court system. Do not risk your well-being or the well-being of your family; we can help you navigate this complex system and reach your desired outcome.
Wills & Estates
An injury, divorce, or adoption may be a time to consider or revisit your estate plan in order to address changes in financial or family structure. When appropriate, we prepare and/or modify wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents for our clients.
