R. Hawthorne Barrett


Thorne Barrett handles civil litigation in a wide variety of areas. While Thorne still handles matters in the state and federal trial courts in South Carolina, he devotes a substantial amount of his practice to appellate work. Thorne’s analytical nature allows him to evaluate potential appellate issues and determine which ones are most likely to bring his clients positive results. His communication skills then allow him to present those issues effectively to the courts.

In his appellate practice, Thorne has argued more than twenty-five cases in South Carolina’s appellate courts, including six appearances before the South Carolina Supreme Court. He has also appeared before the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in Richmond, VA. His appeals have involved professional liability, product liability, premises liability, insurance issues, business disputes and questions of constitutional law. Thorne’s experience has given him a detailed knowledge of the often complicated appellate court rules and procedures. This allows him to guide his clients through the appellate process in a manner that is as efficient and cost-effective as possible.
