The Columbia law firm of Childs & Halligan has been rebranded Halligan Mahoney & Williams.
“Our new name reflects who we are, who we’ve been, and will continue to be as we serve our clients into the future,” said partner Bick Halligan. The firm’s formal legal name, which became effective Wednesday, will be Halligan Mahoney Williams Smith Fawley & Reagle P.A.
Founded in 1981 the firm has 15 attorneys and specializes in education law, serving school boards across South Carolina with a wide array of legal services, including but not limited to board/superintendent relations, employment matters, student discipline, special education, board policies, finance, and regulatory compliance.
“Our knowledge, relationships, mutual trust, and shared wisdom bring lasting value to our relationships with clients,” said partner Dwayne Mazyck.
The firm is based in the heart of Columbia, but its attorneys work for school districts across the state.
The firm also works with governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, businesses, and individuals in labor and employment, government contracts and procurement, litigation and appeals, civil rights, and construction.
“We believe our clients benefit from the collective breadth and depth of experience of our entire firm and we are grateful for the clients we serve,” said partner Kathy Mahoney.
