April 28, 2023 - Greenville, S.C. — Eric H. Philpot, a partner at the Philpot…
The Philpot Law Firm has been serving the Upstate since 1990. With three generations of attorneys under its roof, we pride ourselves in being a name you can trust. Oftentimes in our industry, clients are hit with flashy numbers blinking across their television screens or made to feel like they are just another case number in a stack on a paralegal’s desk. In fact, when you call those flashy numbers, you rarely speak with an actual attorney about your case. At Philpot Law Firm, we believe you deserve to speak with a caring attorney from the start. Going through a personal injury accident can be a difficult time. Whether it’s a minor injury that only takes a few weeks to recover from, or a major accident that keeps you out of work, our family of attorneys wants to walk beside you every step of the way.
