ATTORNEY PROFILE:

Greg McCollum  graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law in January 1985 at the age of twenty four.  Since he had gone straight through college and earned degrees in English and Political Science and then went straight through law school, finishing early in two and a half years, he did not immediately begin to practice law.  Instead, having finished school, he moved to New York City living at first in Astoria, Queens and then later on the upper west side of Manhattan.  In New York he held different jobs including working for Columbia Pictures for about a year and a half.

After a few years he returned to South Carolina, where he grew up, to study for the bar exam.  After passing the bar and becoming admitted to practice law in 1988, he served as a judicial law clerk for then circuit court Judge Don Rushing.  Greg McCollum then joined the public defender's office, where he worked for less than a year before being hired by the district attorney as a felony trial prosecutor.

 He served as an assistant district attorney for five years prosecuting serious felony cases in the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit, trying cases in Horry and Georgetown Counties. In 1993 Mr. McCollum was selected to serve as the prosecuting attorney for the newly formed Centralized Horry County DUI Court. At that time he was assigned a backlog of 600 pending DUI cases for prosecution.

 In 1995 Mr. McCollum left the DUI Court to concentrate his practice on criminal defense. Since that time he has successfully defended individuals accused of serious felonies such as narcotics trafficking, murder, and assault among many other offenses.

His practice involves defending cases in state court, federal court, magistrate court as well as municipal court. Mr. McCollum has a complete criminal defense and traffic court practice where he defends people charged with  crimes in summary court such as driving under the influence, possession of marijuana, minor in possession of alcohol, reckless driving and other traffic court  infractions.

In addition to defending magistrate, municipal and summary court cases, Greg McCollum concentrates a substantial amount of his practice defending serious and multiple felony cases in circuit court in South Carolina and in United States District Court or federal court in South Carolina.
