Meet the Attorney

Licensed In

South Carolina

Practice areas

Business, Estate Planning, Family & Personal


Hi, I’m Jim Spielberger. I am 15-plus year licensed attorney who also possesses a ton of experience in running many different types of businesses, which I believe allows me to more practically assist and relate to business owners and the issues they are facing.

I represent clients in Georgia and South Carolina in a wide variety of practice areas, including business acquisition and formation, contracts, employment issues, real estate and estate planning. My vast legal and business experience not only allows me to effectively explain the law to my clients, but it also enables me to apply real-life, viable solutions to their legal issues.

Finishing in the top five percent of my law school class and graduating magna cum laude is definitely one of the things that I am proudest of in my career path as a lawyer or aspiring lawyer.

I truly care about each and every client I represent and do whatever I can to resolve their legal problems and achieve their business goals. In addition to being a fanatical football fan, I enjoy taking advantage of the beautiful Charleston outdoors whenever I can.

Why I Practice Law

I originally attended law school with the intention of joining the FBI, but ultimately found that I really enjoyed and thrived in private practice and helping businesses and individuals.

Fun Fact

One of my many business ventures was owning and operating a restaurant, and my passion for the culinary industry has resulted in me representing a large number of local and regional bars and eateries.
