Experienced Trial Attorneys Serving the Lowcountry

Ferguson & Ferguson, LLC is a family-owned firm located in downtown Beaufort, South Carolina, with nearly a quarter century of combined legal experience. Locally connected, caring and compassionate attorneys, our team is here to serve in areas of criminal law, including cases in General Sessions, Magistrate and Municipal Courts; family law; and civil litigation, including personal injury matters.

Our attorneys have substantial trial experience and are comfortable fighting for the best possible outcome for our clients – whether that means taking a case to the courtroom, or doing everything possible for our clients to avoid trial. We advocate for you during what is often an emotional, tumultuous experience and equip you with the knowledge you need to make the best decisions for your future.

Serving primarily the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit – Beaufort, Jasper, Colleton, Hampton and Allendale Counties, including Beaufort, Bluffton, Hilton Head Island, Ridgeland, and Walterboro, we pursue or defend claims on behalf of our clients throughout the State of South Carolina.





“Mr. Ferguson represented my husband in a case with stellar intelligence, skill and compassion for which I am genuinely grateful. I sincerely doubt another attorney would have been as dedicated, committed or taken the time and patience to explain things.”

– Beaufort, S.C.

“I’d like to thank you for your work you did on behalf of my granddaughter. I called you out of the clear blue sky and you accepted that assignment, and completed it quickly, responsively and professionally. I consider you to be a fine defense attorney and would be happy to recommend you to other potential clients.”

– Payson, A.Z.

“Besides being a retired priest, I am also a retired lawyer, having practiced over 25 years in the states of Alabama, Wisconsin and Georgia. I had occasion to engage with many lawyers and I have nothing but good things to say concerning Mr. Ferguson. We experienced him as highly professional, attentive and as a good manager of his staff.”

– Boone, N.C.

“Mr. Ferguson was the defense attorney for my son three years ago. He made it his business to always keep me informed every step of the judicial process. He was assuring, encouraging yet straight-forward … and also VERY knowledgeable. His attention to detail made the difference in our son’s sentencing.”

– Beaufort, S.C.
