About Us

Experienced, Dedicated, and Compassionate South Carolina Personal Injury Law Firm

Let Us Help

If you've suffered a loss to your finances, health, or property, we're here to help you. We have a history of advocating for South Carolina victims of complex negligence cases since 1927.

Why Choose the Steinberg Law Firm?

We are a personal injury firm with offices in Charleston, Goose Creek, and Summerville, South Carolina. Our practice areas encompass workers’ compensation, catastrophic injuries, vehicle accidents, premises liability, wrongful death, construction defects, dangerous products, dog bites, medical malpractice, and nursing home abuse.

Founded by Irving Steinberg in 1927, the firm has nearly 100 years of experience advocating for injured individuals in South Carolina.  We are particularly experienced in the area of workers’ compensation, with the firm’s founder, Irving Steinberg, having been one of the lawyers who helped draft and push for enacting South Carolina’s workers’ compensation law. We have obtained some of the largest jury verdicts, workers’ compensation awards, and settlements for our clients in South Carolina. Regardless of the size of a case, our lawyers emphasize providing every client the highest level of advocacy, attention, and compassion.

We Believe in Giving Back

With nearly 100 years’ history as a successful South Carolina law firm, we feel grateful and obligated to give back to the community that has trusted and supported it for so many years. Our financial and time commitments to numerous community organizations, college scholarships for local students, and service on boards and commissions evidence our deep commitment to the growing Charleston community.

In just the last ten years, our firm has recovered over $500 million for our clients. While we do not win every case, we apply the same level of care and dedication to every client we serve.

Our attorneys have been seen on media outlets, including:


In my most desperate uncertain time of need, The Steinberg Law firm was there reassuring me everything would be okay. They worked promptly and diligently on my case. They never left me wondering where we stood with our case. They were extremely polite, and treated me so kind. The staff and Attorney’s are amazing in every location!!!

The Insurance Companies Don’t Have Your Best Interests At Heart.

They hire teams of attorneys, adjusters, and investigators that are all working to pay you as little as possible. They’ll likely throw out lots of legal jargon and try to get you to sign paperwork or waive your right to compensation. Get our firm behind you and let us do the heavy lifting so that you can focus on getting better.

We are a Results-Driven Personal Injury Law Firm

At the Steinberg Law Firm, we believe the best way to measure our success is through the results that we regularly obtain for our clients. South Carolinians know, “even a broken clock is right twice a day.” And along those lines, any personal injury law firm can stumble upon a big-money verdict now and again. However, at our firm, we pride ourselves in the consistent level of representation that we provide to each of our clients, and the significant verdicts that come with this dedication. While every case is different, a few of our more recent settlements include:


Motorcycle T-bone Collision Settlement


Product Defect Settlement


Auto Accident Settlement


Truck Accident Settlement

In just the past ten years, the Steinberg Law Firm has recovered over $500,000,000 in compensation for our injured clients through both settlement offers and successful jury verdicts.

Our No Fee Promise

Clients of the Steinberg Law Firm repeatedly tell us that they appreciate how we work on a contingent-fee basis. This means that we charge nothing upfront, and cover all the costs associated with a case. The result is that our clients pay nothing along the way.

Only when we are successful - either by securing an acceptable settlement offer or obtaining a jury verdict in your favor, we are paid. This arrangement allows you to proceed with the case without bearing the financial risk that may otherwise make pursuing a claim cost-prohibitive. It also aligns our interests, providing reassurance that we are working for your best interest at all times.

If You Have Been Hurt, We Want To Help

We represent clients in all types of injury claims, including those involving car accidents, slip and falls, nursing home abuse, medical malpractice, construction defects and wrongful deaths. Our team of attorneys are both skilled negotiators and aggressive litigators, and seamlessly switch between these roles as the nature of a case requires. Our attorneys have over 200 years of collective experience handling almost every type of personal injury case imaginable. Given this broad base of experience, chances are, we have handled a case just like yours. To learn more about how we can help you pursue a claim for compensation based on the injuries you have sustained, call us at 843-720-2800, or contact us through our online form. We represent clients in Charleston and throughout South Carolina. Calling is free, and because we offer a No Fee Promise, you do not pay unless we win.

We look forward to speaking with you and helping you and your family through the recovery process.
