With over 40 years of combined experience, our lawyers bring a family approach to their work. Trip Riesen, has followed in his father’s footsteps, working on behalf of South Carolina citizens in criminal, workers’ compensation and personal injury cases. Trip was joined by former prosecutor Rutledge DuRant, a friend of the family, who has brought his own knowledge of criminal defense and personal injury law to the practice. The team was completed with the addition of Chip Cannon, a former prosecutor and attorney at a large statewide insurance defense firm.
Together with our staff of attorneys and paralegals we provide a service to the local community that we are proud to be a part of. We love living in the Lowcountry and practicing law throughout our state. We serve not only the people of the Tri-County but also citizens throughout the State of South Carolina.
Trip Riesen, Rutledge DuRant, and Chip Cannon all met as criminal prosecutors in the Ninth Circuit Solicitor’s office. Each prosecuted numerous cases, aggressively seeking and obtaining convictions for crimes that included drug trafficking, armed robbery, felony driving under the influence, and murder. Trip, Rutledge, and Chip call upon that experience every day when they represent clients in private practice, and they are proud that their experience as prosecutors helps them see all angles of every case.
