- Certified Mediator and Arbitrator -
I have enjoyed the practice of law in South Carolina since 1984 and am excited to be a part of bringing the experience and diverse legal expertise of the Bellamy Law Firm, which was established in Myrtle Beach in 1962, to Pawleys Island where I have personally practiced since 1993. Pawleys Island is historic and wonderful beach town where I live with my wife, Kitty and our four children. I attend Pawleys Island Community Church.
I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry from Bethany College in Bethany, West Virginia and a Juris Doctor Degree (Cum Laude) from Capital University Law School in Columbus, Ohio where I was on the Law Review (Articles Editor) and a member of the Order of the Curia, National Honor Fraternity, Order of the Barristers and National Moot Court Team. I am currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Sports Administration from Drexel University in Philadelphia.
I am a South Carolina Real Estate Broker-in-Charge, a South Carolina Title Insurance Agent, a South Carolina Certified Mediator and a South Carolina Certified Arbitrator. I also served as the Municipal Judge for Pawleys Island, South Carolina and was a professor at Horry Georgetown Technical College.
I have enjoyed being a part of the Pawleys Island Community and working with several local churches and non-profit organizations and have been involved as a Board Member or legal counsel for Habitat for Humanity, St. Christopher’s Children, Inc., Pawleys Island Christian Academy, Pawleys Recreation 2001, Kids Voting, Rotary International, United Way, The First Tee, Global Soccer Ministries, The Ashley G Charitable Foundation, Inc., the Dustin Johnson Foundation, Inc. the South Carolina Chapter of the Alexander Graham Association for the Deaf, and Carolina Human Reinvestment. I have also been appointed by Governor Haley to serve as a Board Member for the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind.
I look forward to working with you and providing caring and competent legal services in this very special part of the South Carolina low country.
