Three new attorneys — Jennifer Stone, Alexander Hogsette and Richard Jones III — are on the job at South Carolina law firm Turner Padget Graham & Laney, P.A.
Stone will work in Columbia at the firm's business transactions practice. Hogsette and Jones joined the firm's insurance litigation practice; Hogsette will work from the Florence office, while Jones will be based in Columbia.
Stone began her legal career in 2002 as a law clerk at Callison Tighe & Robinson. She holds an undergraduate degree from Erskine College and a law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law.
Hogsette served as a civil litigation, federal regulation, personal injury, real estate, professional liability and contractual dispute lawyer for Wilcox, Buyck & Williams. He earned his undergraduate degree at the University of South at Sewanee and his law degree from Charleston School of Law.
Jones comes to Turner Padget from Richardson Plowden, where he served mainly as a medical malpractice attorney. His undergraduate and law degrees both come from the University of South Carolina.
“One of our priorities for this year is to bolster our ranks within our core practice areas: business litigation, business transactions and insurance litigation,” R. Wayne Byrd, CEO of Turner Padget, said. “Our client service model is built on efficiency and the reputation of outstanding lawyers like those in this group. Their arrivals further support our ability to respond promptly and strategically to our clients’ legal needs.”
