Governmental Representation


Devlin Parkinson has a long history of representing state, county, and local governmental entities, officials and employees throughout South Carolina. We are also able to provide advice to private individuals with politically sensitive or governmental needs. The firm frequently serves as counsel for law enforcement entities and employees, as well as attorneys and medical professionals employed by the government.

Our lawyers frequently handle cases arising under the South Carolina Tort Claims Act, the Federal Tort Claims Act, and the Civil Rights Act (42 U.S.C. § 1983). We also provide proactive counsel for deflecting potential claims, contract proposals and review, and general advice for community planning issues.
