Biography

Annie focuses her practice on nursing home abuse and neglect, civil rights violations, and various personal injury matters. An experienced litigator, Annie worked for seven years as a trial attorney at the Charleston County Public Defender’s office, where she tried numerous cases to jury verdict and zealously fought for the rights of more than 1,000 individuals.
Annie is AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell. She was recognized by Super Lawyers and named among the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” by the National Trial Lawyers. She received the 2021 Emerging Leader award from the South Carolina Women Lawyers Association (SCWLA) and was recognized by Charleston Business Magazine’s 2021 Women in Business for her important contributions to the legal community.
While representing incarcerated children, she went beyond simply defending their cases and sought to reform the juvenile justice system by challenging the constitutionality of solitary confinement and the use of restraint chairs in juvenile jails. Her criminal justice reform efforts resulted in the closure of the fifty-year-old dilapidated Charleston County Juvenile Detention Center, ending decades of unconstitutional confinement of youth. Annie also increased access to books in juvenile jails by collecting over 4,000 young adult books to build or revamp libraries in juvenile jails within Charleston, Columbia, and Greenville –also for the benefit of her young clients.
Her current community involvement is extensive and includes serving as a board member of Charleston Legal Access, a nonprofit law firm expanding legal services for low-income South Carolinians and serving as a board member of the South Carolina Women Lawyers Association (SCWLA), an association that connects and empowers women lawyers throughout South Carolina. Annie is a former member of the SC Bar’s Elder Law committee, the SC Bar’s Protecting Our Youth Committee, Charleston County Juvenile Drug Court, and a graduate of the SC Bar’s Leadership Academy.
