With the Ezell Law Firm, you will have at your side an attorney that has significant trial experience and is not afraid to take your case to court if necessary.

As a Graduate of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy held at the University of North Carolina School of Law, and with more than three decades of experience trying cases before judges, juries, administrative agencies, and appellate panels, I have developed the tools and skills necessary to handle your case from beginning to end.

While we always encourage our clients to consider resolving a matter if such a resolution is in the client’s best interests, some cases arise that simply must be carried to trial, and we are well equipped to do just that.

Family Law

Cases related to family law can include separation, divorce, adultery, child support, child visitation and custody battles, and more. These can be very trying and stressful times both emotionally, physically, and financially. In these cases, where you need to discuss agreements in how to divide assets, properties, and in some cases visitation and custody rights, much can be done without even going to court. It is important to Jeff Ezell to help you with your family law case in a way that has the greatest possible benefit to you, and the least possible negative impact, especially when there are children involved.

If you are faced with a family law matter, it is best to seek counsel early. Gathering as many facts as possible, as soon as possible, is of paramount importance when trying to get your case set up to be handled in the most effective way possible. When needed, we have at our disposal personal relationships with several private investigators to make certain we have all of the facts and evidence necessary to prepare your case in the most professional, thorough and effective way possible.

Additionally, when necessary and appropriate, we can work closely with various local therapists and counselors so that the emotional needs of our Clients, and often their children, are dealt with as we assist them through the tough and trying legal aspects of the divorce process.

Personal Injury

A personal injury can be defined as any accident, such as a car wreck or a slip and fall on someone else’s property, where you as an individual are injured in some way. Personal injury also includes an intentional act where someone hurts you, in some form or fashion, on purpose.

Important things to document and keep in mind include any statements made to you, or to any other witness, at or near the time of the injury. If at all possible, take photographs, either with a cell phone or disposable camera, of the accident scene and the layout of anywhere your injury might have occurred. Also, please be certain to try and get all the names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone who might have witnessed your accident or injury. Having this information may make your claim much easier to handle in the long run.

Workers’ Compensation

Workers Compensation is the system set in place by the South Carolina State Government to deal with accidents and injuries which occur on the job.

If you are injured on the job, you must report the injury to your employer within 90 days of it happening, though the best course of action is to report any such accident or injury immediately. Many employers and insurance companies will do their best to deny claims that are not reported very close in time to the accident’s occurrence. What is even worse is that many employers have policies whereby they might discipline, or even terminate an employee that does not report an accident or injury in a very timely fashion.
