Pursuing All Options

As a certified family court mediator by the South Carolina Supreme Court, attorney David C. Shea uses his training to help families achieve amicable resolutions through mediation, wherever possible. If no equitable settlement can be obtained, he uses that same training to protect our clients’ rights and interests in court.

We also provide services for clients wishing to obtain a modification or enforcement of an existing agreement. We apply the same principles of dedication, preparation and personalized attention our clients deserve to obtain the best possible result.

Our firm also has experience appealing divorce settlements before the South Carolina appellate courts.
