I am a proud fourth generation native of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Upon my graduation from Myrtle Beach High School in 1977, I volunteered to be a lay missionary to the native Maya of Southern Mexico, where I served until 1980. When I returned to Myrtle Beach, I attended Coastal Carolina University and graduated in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. I then paused my education and worked in hotel and resort property management for five years. After gaining valuable experience in the Myrtle Beach business world, I continued my education to receive my law degree in December 1989, from Minnesota’s Hamlin University School of Law. In 1990, I was administered the oath as a member of the South Carolina Bar.
It has been my honor to serve the people of Myrtle Beach as an attorney and also as a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, where I was duly elected in 2002. Today, I am serving as Chairman of the House Rules Committee.
After recognizing the need for legal services for those suffering financial hardship across the Grand Strand, I added a bankruptcy department within Clemmons Law Firm, LLC. Since then I have been able to assemble a staff that maintains a commitment to providing compassionate, caring, and professional assistance to those in need.
Attorneys Patty Anderson and Spencer Powell have been great additions to our firm and do an excellent job at leading our bankruptcy team. Both attorneys, along with our support staff, are available to help any citizen of the Grand Strand with any financial challenge that he or she might face.
FUN FACT – My hobby is farming! On the farm I raise chickens, ducks and turkeys.
