Summary

Born and having lived in Charleston all his life, David Pearlman has spent his entire life observing the dignity and respect of the law. David’s father, the Honorable Gus H. Pearlman, was Probate Judge for Charleston County for 35 years. “He taught me that everybody deserves respect, dignity, and equal justice no matter their background.” David Pearlman has spent his entire career trying to ensure that “justice for all” means just that.
While in college at University of Georgia and George Washington University, David marched for civil and workers’ rights. After obtaining his law degree from the University Of South Carolina Law School, he joined the Steinberg Law Firm in 1976. He then became a partner in 1980.
David has been a member of the South Carolina Bar for more than 40 years. He has won landmark cases before the South Carolina Court of Appeals and the South Carolina Supreme Court. He has been credited with successful victories protecting working people against some of the country’s largest corporations.
David has lectured and served on numerous committees devoted to workers’ rights, including serving as Legislative Chairperson for South Carolina Injured Workers’ Advocates (IWA) for the last 12 years. He is a past recipient of the Gedney M. Howe Jr. Award for Outstanding Public Service. David previously served as an adjunct professor of Workers’ Compensation Law at the Charleston School of Law for 2 years. He is a 2011 and 2017 honorable recipient of the Leadership in Law by Lawyers Weekly. For over a decade now, he has been named one of the Best Lawyers in America and nominated by his peers as Super Lawyers year after year. Pearlman holds the highest professional and ethical rating (AV) in Martindale-Hubbell, a legal directory. Not only is David highly respected by peers, but he is deeply loved by his staff because of his sincere and remarkable character. His passion and heart for people is why he is the right lawyer for you.
