With several years of experience as an attorney and law clerk for South Carolina courts, I bring my knowledge of the judicial system to help clients resolve matters efficiently and effectively.
Luke Allen represents large and small businesses, officers, and directors in complex civil litigation, state and federal administrative proceedings, and appeals. Luke focuses his practice on commercial contracts, construction, tort, and financial services litigation. He frequently advises clients in discrimination, wrongful termination, harassment, and retaliation suits. His experience also includes helping clients resolve disputes and litigation involving defaults, collections, liens, foreclosures, bankruptcy, and related matters.
Prior to joining the firm, Luke served as a law clerk to Chief Judge James Lockemy of the South Carolina Court of Appeals, where he assisted in all aspects of appellate practice. Prior to holding that position, he served as a staff attorney for the Court of Appeals and was a law clerk for the Honorable Maité Murphy of the South Carolina Circuit Court. Luke’s legal writing and analytical skills, drawn from his trial and appellate court experience, allow him to be an effective advocate for his clients at all levels of the litigation process.
While in law school, Luke worked as a law clerk for the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation and for the South Carolina Senate Judiciary Committee.
