Allyce Bailey has a very active insurance litigation practice where she represents defendants in bodily injury, premises liability and other litigation. The nature of Allyce’s practice has allowed her to gain invaluable trial and motions practice experience. Allyce is focused on providing outstanding results and solving her clients’ problems efficiently.
Allyce brings a diverse range of experience to her practice at Turner Padget. She is the former executive director of the South Carolina Women Lawyers Association, where she was responsible for coordinating conventions and other events, developing innovative strategies to resolve issues facing the organization, addressing budgetary concerns, and recruiting new members.
Earlier, she served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable DeAndrea Gist Benjamin of South Carolina’s Fifth Judicial Circuit. She credits that experience with giving her practical insight into the procedural aspects of the practice of law, as well as discovering the attributes that the most effective trial lawyers possess.
Away from the office, Allyce contributes much of her time to helping others in the community. She is the CEO of the Hill Foundation for Hope, an organization that she founded while in law school to help residents of homeless shelters and group homes gain practical skills. As a law student, she volunteered each week at the Capital Area Alliance for the Homeless in Baton Rouge, La. She and her husband, who met as students in law school, also volunteer at their church.
