My technical background in biology and medical sciences as well as my legal experience allows me to approach client issues with a unique perspective. I am a problem solver and help to develop creative solutions that best achieve my client’s goals. My experience also allows me to handle complex client issues in an organized and efficient manner.

Kellie Bingham comes to Adams and Reese with a background in legislative planning, legislative drafting, and legal research and advises clients on various government relations matters across South Carolina. Kellie’s knowledge of the legislative and regulatory processes allows her to understand and navigate complexities surrounding government relationships, which she has established at the federal, state, and local levels. These connections enable her to effectively and efficiently communicate clients’ goals and objectives. 

While in law school, Kellie interned at Adams and Reese, assisting the Government Relations team in developing legislative plans of action for clients involved in COVID-19 testing, neuromonitoring devices and services, tourism, alcohol distribution, and third-party delivery services. Before this, Kellie interned at Adams and Reese as a law clerk, working in various legal fields, including criminal law, property law, contract law, healthcare litigation, tort litigation, employment law, and entertainment law.

Kellie is a 2021 graduate of the University of South Carolina Law School. While in law school, she served as Production Editor for the ABA Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Journal. She was also named to the Dean’s List.

Kellie is an undergraduate alumna of Furman University, where she graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Biology in 2014. She attended the Medical University of South Carolina and graduated with a M.S. in Medical Sciences in 2018.
