Attorney Maree understands this. He will work aggressively and expeditiously to help you receive the most from your workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ Compensation Laws are there to provide sure, prompt, reasonable income and medical benefits to work-related accident victims, or income benefits to their dependents, regardless of fault.

DIVORCE/SEPARATION


Going through a divorce is a challenging time for all individuals involved. Some divorces can be congenial, while others can become contentious. The issues regarding alimony, child support, child custody, visitation and attorney’s fees can become extremely adversarial and emotionally charged. In these situations you need an attorney who knows the divorce laws and can protect your rights and look out for your best interests. Contact Maree Law Firm if you are considering a divorce. There are many steps you can take prior to filing for divorce. If you have been served with divorce papers, a delay in responding can be detrimental to your case. Contact Attorney Maree who will listen to you and will work toward achieving your goals.

CRIMINAL DEFENSE


Attorney Maree served as an Assistant Solicitor for the Second Judicial Circuit of South Carolina.  He utilizes his experience as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney to assist in evaluating, preparing and trying your case. You need an attorney who is skilled in the area of criminal defense if you have been charged with a crime and/or facing a possible jail sentence. Many criminal defendants win their cases because evidence was obtained illegally. Other cases are won because the prosecution failed to prove its case “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Every person charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Yet, many innocent people have been convicted of crimes because they did not have a skilled attorney on their side to argue their case. The negative stigma placed on a person with a criminal record can follow them for the rest of their life. It is important to have an attorney in the courtroom advocating on your behalf that knows the law and can protect your rights. Contact Maree Law Firm to speak with an attorney who can assist you with criminal defense.
