“When my client has suffered an injury due to the negligence of others, there can be a long road ahead. I’m there to do what’s best for my client and to get them the best possible result.”

Malcolm Crosland has been in practice for 34 years, and that’s no surprise. He comes from a family of lawyers — his father and grandfather were lawyers, so carrying on the family tradition was a natural path for him to take. You could almost call it predestined. He handles personal injury cases, including auto and truck accidentsnursing home abusemedical malpracticebrain injuriesslip-and-fall casesdrug recalls, and wrongful death suits.

Known for his honesty, compassion, integrity, and zealous pursuit of justice, Malcolm appreciates his clients and considers them family. When it comes to handling personal injury cases, he understands how an accident or the death of a loved one can affect an entire family. Nowadays, he applies his career-long experience and insights to working on behalf of first responders and healthcare providers whose livelihoods, medical status, and finances have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. He represents his clients in state and federal courts, the South Carolina Worker’s Compensation Commission, and the U.S. Department of Labor, and is responsible for numerous published appellate decisions in both state and federal courts.

Malcolm attended the University of South Carolina for his undergraduate work and its School of Law for his legal training. “I was drawn to the Steinberg Law Firm’s reputation for representing injured workers and their families,” he said of his decision to join the firm immediately after graduating from law school in 1986.

Recognized year after year by Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers, Malcolm also holds an A/V (the highest level) rating with Martindale-Hubbell for his professional and ethical standards. He has received recognition in Best Lawyers in South Carolina every year since 2009.

Malcolm is passionate about giving back to the community and has served on both charitable boards and law-related committees. He has served on the board of directors of the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina and of Lowcountry AIDS Services; is the former president of the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic; and currently is president of Workers Injury Law and Advocacy, a national organization whose mission is to protect the rights of working people.

Malcolm grew up in the village of Mount Pleasant, just a few blocks from Charleston’s harbor. When he isn’t working on behalf of his law clients or community, he enjoys traveling, spending time with his family, reading, fishing the waters around Charleston, surfing, cooking, or playing golf.
