Our Story

As first-year law students at the University of South Carolina School of Law, Paul Thurmond, Jesse Kirchner and Michael Timbes quickly became friends. They had similar personalities, drive and interests. They also recognized in each other a commitment to hard work and professional ethics. It was only natural that they discussed opening a law practice together.

After graduating from law school, each newly minted attorney went his separate way, focusing on different aspects of the law. But, they never let go of the idea they would all work together, and in 2005, they formed Thurmond Kirchner & Timbes, P.A.

Since opening their offices in downtown Charleston, the practice has steadily grown to include 12 attorneys and a large support staff. The firm continues to handle a wide range of services often only found in much larger firms, including: criminal defense, personal injury, construction law, business disputes, complex contract disputes, community association law, insurance bad faith claims, property disputes and appeals.

Small Firm – Big Practice

At Thurmond Kirchner & Timbes, P.A., we offer the responsiveness and flexibility of a smaller practice, together with the thorough level of client services and wide range of experience you’d expect of a much larger law firm. We make sure you understand the legal process, with its inherit risks and rewards. We want to provide the best possible result for you, your business, and your family.

Simply put, our goal is to provide outstanding representation to each of our clients as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Our attorneys work with a talented support staff to develop creative legal strategies to resolve each client’s unique situation. We evaluate each matter carefully and offer realistic solutions to our clients to help determine the best path forward. Our job is to effectively and aggressively ensure your best interests are protected.
