COLUMBIA, S.C. – Bluestein Attorneys is proud to welcome back John S. Nichols, who together with Margaret Miles “Marti” Bluestein started the firm in 2000.

“It is wonderful to be back to the firm Marti and I founded together more than two decades ago,” said John. “Our goal was to create a law firm in which everyone was committed to making a difference in the lives of our clients. I am proud to say that’s still who Bluestein Attorneys is today, and I am excited to be back to continue that mission.”

Over the years he has served as president of the South Carolina Association of Justice, as a member of the S.C. Board of Law Examiners by Supreme Court appointment, and he is currently chairman of the S.C. Commission on Indigent Defense.

He has written or edited several books for the South Carolina Bar and for Thomson Reuters including The Trial Handbook for South Carolina Lawyers and South Carolina Civil Procedure. He served on the South Carolina Lawyer magazine’s Editorial Board, serving as editor-in-chief from 2004 through 2006. John also served as editor of The Bulletin, the magazine for the South Carolina Association for Justice.
