Practice Areas

Criminal Defense

We know it is natural for people who have been accused of a crime to feel great anxiety about the resolution of their cases. After all, every criminal case in some manner threatens to affect the lives of the persons charged, as well as those who care for and depend on them. If you have been accused of or charged with a crime, it is critically important to find a skilled criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights.

DUI Defense

Paul Thurmond is lead counsel for DUI Defense and Criminal Defense at Thurmond Kirchner & Timbes Law Firm. As a seasoned DUI defense attorney in Charleston, South Carolina, Mr. Thurmond has handled a wide range of DUI charges and knows how to negotiate with prosecutors and law enforcement. We have been successful in getting erroneous charges dismissed, negotiating for a lessor or reduced charge or avoiding jail through community service or monetary penalty.

Personal Injury

We help individuals who have been injured, through no fault of their own, as a result of someone else’s negligence. We have experience in a variety of unfortunate cases, including automobile accidents, premises liability, trips and falls, dog bites, dangerous and defective consumer products, and medical malpractice.

Construction Law

We represent owners, contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, homeowners, developers, and others in all areas of construction litigation. In the fast-paced and high-stakes construction arena, swift and sure legal counsel is vital. No matter which side of that dispute you are on, you would need an attorney to sort through all the complex legal issues.

Business Disputes

Businesses of all sizes face a broad range of legal issues in and out of court. At Thurmond Kirchner & Timbes, P.A., our business law attorneys help to resolve business disputes, negotiate contracts, and protect businesses to make it possible for them to grow and thrive.

Auto Accidents

Every year thousands of people are seriously injured or killed in collisions with cars, trucks, tractor trailers, and other motor vehicles. Many of these auto and trucking accidents are caused by reckless drivers, drivers who fail to obey traffic laws and, in some instances, commercial drivers who fail to follow regulations. Our auto and trucking accident lawyers have the knowledge and skill to successfully represent victims of motor vehicle accidents.
