Lawrence Hershon

Born and raised in Charleston, Lawrence grew up in West Ashley enjoying pick-up games of baseball on a nearby empty lot with his neighborhood friends, as well as fishing, crabbing, and shrimping in nearby Coburg Creek.  After graduating from Porter-Gaud School, Lawrence decided to take on the greatest academic challenge he could find, matriculating to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.  After (at least) one too many April snow showers, he knew in his heart that he belonged back in South Carolina.  After a two year stop in Washington, D.C. working at the United States Senate Budget Committee, providing U.S. Senators analysis concerning issues ranging from Social Security to Defense Department expenditures, Lawrence returned to South Carolina to attend both the University of South Carolina School of Law and the Moore School of Business.

Upon graduation in 2008, with a law degree (JD) and a master’s degree in international business (IMBA), Lawrence was equipped to commence his legal career.  While his intentions were to work in Charleston, the Great Recession brought him back to Columbia in 2009, working through the ranks at a large regional law firm, becoming a partner and the Columbia office’s Client Relationship Partner.  After over twelve years at that firm, two things had become clear: It was time to return to Charleston, and it was time for Lawrence to open up his own law firm so that he could continue to provide his legal services and knowhow in his hometown as well as statewide across South Carolina, with big firm knowledge but with small firm attention to his clients.  Without a doubt, Lawrence is happy to be back home.

Lawrence and his wife Heather live in Johns Island, raising their two daughters, Ellis and Collins.  The Hershons love doing all things that make the Low Country great: being on the water, spending time at the beach, soaking up the sun, eating local seafood, and enjoying each other’s company in the most beautiful city in America.
