“I want to be a voice and advocate for people when they’re navigating through the most-stressful situations in their lives.”

FULL BIO

Annie E. Andrews’s clients are fortunate to have such a passionate and dedicated attorney working on their case. An experienced litigator, Annie worked for seven years as a trial attorney at the Charleston County Public Defender’s office, where she tried numerous cases to jury verdict and zealously fought for the rights of more than 1,000 individuals. In moving to the Steinberg Law Firm, she brings the same commitment and guidance to her clients’ cases involving nursing home abuse or neglect, personal injury from car accidents or medical malpractice, and failure-to-warn and design defects.

Annie often goes beyond simply defending a client’s case. While representing an incarcerated pregnant teen who did not have access to a library, Annie built a library for her client and then helped revitalize juvenile jails in Columbia and Greenville by collecting more than 4,000 young adult books. Her efforts to increase literacy and expand access to books in juvenile jails saw coverage by media such as ABC 4 News and News 21 and was recognized by the Charleston County Bar Association.

While representing incarcerated children, she went beyond simply defending their cases and sought to reform the juvenile justice system for their benefit by challenging the constitutionality of solitary confinement in the lowcountry. Her advocacy for the rights of incarcerated children and efforts to improve living conditions within juvenile jails has garnered media attention at home and across the country.

Annie’s peers have recognized her commitment and dedication to our community and contributions to the practice of law. She received the Star of the Quarter award of the SC Bar’s Young Lawyers Division (FY2018–19) and was the sole recipient of the 2019 Juvenile Defender of the Year in South Carolina award. In 2019, Annie graduated from the SC Bar’s Leadership Academy, a selective program designed to train the next generation of Bar members and community leaders.

Annie developed her professional ethics early: Before law school, she worked with the Richland County Public Defender’s office, where she was inspired by the passionate lawyers who advocated for the constitutional rights of people battling cycles of poverty whom society has often forgotten. She believes that the true measure of a society’s character is how it treats the poor and the accused. Annie went to law school to make a difference in the community by aggressively fighting for individuals’ rights, one case at a time.

Annie brings a similar commitment to community and professional service. While in law school, she volunteered at the One80 Place homeless shelter’s legal clinic, helping homeless individuals with various legal matters, and was recognized at her law school graduation for performing over 500 hours of pro bono service. She is admitted to the South Carolina and U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina, and is involved in the Charleston County Bar Association, South Carolina Association for Justice and South Carolina Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. She is also a former member of the SC Bar LYD Protecting Our Youth Committee and a committee member of the Charleston County Juvenile Drug Court. Her current community involvement is extensive and includes serving as a board member of Charleston Legal Access, a nonprofit law firm dedicated to expanding access to legal services for South Carolinians.

Annie earned her JD degree from the Charleston School of Law, where she was on the Dean’s List and Moot Court, and served as a research assistant and a reference librarian at the Sol Blatt Jr. Law Library. Her BA is in political science from the University of South Carolina, with a minor in criminal justice, and her undergraduate honors included Dean’s List, Pi Sigma Alpha Honor Society and Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society.
