Laura Hiller has been practicing criminal defense in South Carolina since 2008. She graduated from the Charleston School of Law in December 2007 and took the State Bar Exam in the spring of 2008. Laura was admitted to the State Bar Association in May 2008. She has been a member of the South Carolina Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer since she began her practice and is a former Treasurer of the Horry County Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Laura has also completed the two-week rigorous Trial Practice Institute offered by the National Criminal Defense College, which provided her with advanced jury trial training and experience.
One of Laura’s key areas of interest is defending crimes involving sexual allegations. Laura knows that many issues can form the root of such allegations, and, while society is quick to pass judgment on such charges, sex crimes cases often involve much more than meets the eye. Annually Laura attends seminars sponsored by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers that focus on defending people charged with serious sex crimes. She actively advances her ability to effectively represent her clients charged with sex crimes by staying current on trends in law and psychology.
While in law school, Laura worked with both the Public Defender in Darlington County, South Carolina and the Federal Public Defender in Charleston, South Carolina.
Laura is a 2004 graduate of Clemson University. She graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in English.
