Halio, Elliott T
Mr. Elliott T. Halio worked in downtown Charleston, South Carolina for many years. He was a graduate of Duke University School of Law and early on, became a sitting judge on the bench. He opened The Halio Law Firm many years ago and became an extremely effective attorney. His family met my family through membership in The Jaycees, a local organization that introduced business minded individuals to each other. This is taking things back to the 1950's period. He became not only well respected but also extremely beneficial to those he served. He and his wife had two children, Sally and Andrew. As time drew near, Mr. Andrew S. Halio also applied and was accepted into The Duke University School of Law. After getting his law degree, he became licensed to practice law in our great State. He joined Mr. Elliott T. Halio, his father, and the two changed the name of the Halio Law Firm to Halio and Halio, Attorneys at Law. They operated under that business title until Mr. Elliott T. Halio's death in the mid 2000's. His wife passed away shortly after with complications she had dealt with for many years. Today, Mr. Andrew S. Halio runs The Halio Law Firm which specializes in many types of law. Andrew has become well respected and a driving force in his field and would welcome anyone's business pertaining to law. I can vouch for both because I have had the pleasure of using their expertise myself, which is unparalleled in the Charleston area. Flatly put, if you've got a case that is to be tried in this or our surrounding areas, and you want to win, Mr. Andrew S. Halio should be your choice. It may be a little more expensive, but the end resort of winning your case will make up for that. Andrew has eyes and ears all over the city and county areas of Charleston, and by now has added other areas to his business. An ethical approach in any business matter is of extreme importance as well as strict confidentiality. You will find both right there. Sincerely, Charles Garrett and family.

Schwartz Paul D Attorney at Law
Paul was absolutely amazing in my time of need. When I didn't even know my name some days, he was there to hold my hand through it. I survived with his help. He and Nancy took very good care of every detail in my case. After 10 years, he and his wife are still involved in our lives. He cares about family!

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
