General Practice Law Firm

General Practice Attorneys Serving Marion, Florence, Dillon, Conway, Mullins, Nichols and Latta

Established in 2011 by local attorneys Elizabeth “Bess” Battle and Harry Allen IV, the Marion law firm of Battle & Allen is a full-service general practice firm that puts its clients first. The attorneys at Battle & Allen are dedicated to advocating their clients’ interests while treating them with the courtesy and respect they expect and deserve.

Some of the primary concentrations for Battle & Allen’s lawyers include:

Real Estate Law

Transferring title to South Carolina real estate requires a thorough review of records and paperwork to make sure the parties are aware of their ownership rights and what the closing documents mean. Battle & Allen can help you through the closing process to ensure a smooth process when it comes to making what’s likely to be one of the largest financial transactions in your life.


Criminal Defense

People who have been charged with a crime often face shock, fear and confusion. Regardless of the charges — and regardless of whether you made a mistake or were wrongly accused — Battle & Allen can assist you with the complex South Carolina criminal legal process. We know how to work with the Solicitor’s Office if a negotiated plea deal is your best option, but we are also prepared to take your case to trial if that appears to offer a better outcome.


Personal Injury

If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligent or intentional act, you could be entitled to compensation under South Carolina law. Let Battle & Allen handle the insurance companies and opposing lawyers for you. We know how to prepare a personal injury case for trial, but we also understand that a negotiated settlement can sometimes be the best result for a plaintiff.


Family Law

Cases involving divorce, child custody and support, adoption and other family matters can be the most emotional legal issues anyone faces. Battle & Allen can give you the legal guidance you need, as well as the advocacy you deserve during a family-related legal dispute. We understand how personally challenging some cases can be, so our attorneys will take the time to understand your issues and treat you with care and respect to help you navigate some of life’s rougher patches.


Estate Planning

Even though no one likes to think about their own death, it’s important to make plans for what will happen to your property after you pass. Making estate plans now can help your loved ones avoid family disputes and minimize tax burdens and probate delays down the road. You can also make your wishes known regarding end-of-life care matters, like whether you want to go on life support. Battle & Allen can help you draw up wills, trusts and other estate-planning tools that are right for you.


Traffic and DUI Law

Drive long enough and you are likely to get some type of ticket. Even if it is a minor traffic infraction, it could have serious repercussions on insurance costs. If you get enough of them, they could impact your ability to drive. For people with a commercial driver’s license, your job could be on the line as well. More serious charges like DUI or reckless driving carry heavy fines and punishments. Battle & Allen can stand up for your rights, making sure law enforcement did what they were supposed to during the traffic stop. We can also negotiate a deal with the Solicitor’s Office if that is the best course in your case.

If you have questions or concerns about your rights in a legal matter, the attorneys at Battle & Allen can help. Call or email them today, or visit their office in historic downtown Marion or set up and appointment to meet at their new Florence location.
