About Steinberg Law Firm
As one of the first Jewish attorneys in Charleston, Steinberg experienced discrimination and this inspired him to assist another disenfranchised group during that time — African Americans.
The firm began handling criminal and civil cases, and in the early 1920’s, Steinberg became interested in workers compensation law. There were, however, no workers compensation laws on the books at the time. Steinberg and other South Carolina attorneys then gathered statutes from other states and lobbied to add a similar law in South Carolina in 1936.
With over 170 years of combined award-winning legal experience, our team of personal injury attorneys at Steinberg Law Firm works together to help people with:
- Workers’ Compensation Cases
- Auto Accident Claims
- Wrongful Death Cases
- Social Security Disability Claims
- Personal Injury Claims
- Construction Defect Cases
