Biographical Notes:

design element
Danny has practiced law in his native South Carolina since his admission to the Bar in November 1975. He received his B.A. degree (with a political science major) from Duke University in 1972 and his J.D. degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1975. Danny was an attorney for the Social Security Administration for his first two years as a lawyer. From 1977 to 1980, he served as an Assistant City Attorney for the City of Columbia defending the City and its employees in civil litigation and prosecuting criminal and traffic cases in Municipal Court. Danny practiced with the Turner Padget law firm in Columbia from 1980 to January 2014 with a practice focused on civil litigation, representation of municipalities and counties and their employees, and mediation and arbitration. He also was General Counsel of the Municipal Association of South Carolina from January 2003 to July 2005.

While in private practice, Danny has served as the appointed municipal attorney for six municipalities, including his service since 1997 as the Town Attorney for Saluda and since 1998 as the City Attorney for Cayce. He was a substitute Municipal Court Judge for the City of Columbia for 20 years until 2003. Danny also was the 1997 President of the Richland County Bar Association, the 2001 president of the South Carolina Municipal Attorneys Association, the 2013-2014 Chair of the State Bar’s Dispute Resolution Section Council, and the first lawyer recipient of the Richland County Bar’s Matthew J. Perry Civility Award in 2002.

Danny is listed in the peer-selected publication The Best Lawyers in America for his practice of municipal law, for his practice of municipal litigation and for his practice as a mediator. He was recognized by that organization as the Alternative Dispute Resolution Lawyer of the Year for Columbia for 2011 and 2013. He is a certified mediator and arbitrator and has mediated more than 750 cases.
