Biography

Langdon Cheves began his legal career clerking for the Honorable Henry F. Floyd during one of Judge Floyd’s last years on the State Court bench before his ascension up the Federal Court ranks.  During this year, despite experiencing two high-profile death penalty cases, Langdon felt the best lawyers he witnessed in the courtroom were the insurance litigation lawyers, and he knew he wanted to follow suit. As a result, Langdon has always been a civil defense attorney and has represented carriers in all aspects of liability work. He still enjoys the adrenaline of trial work but recognizes the satisfaction of obtaining a great settlement for his clients, as well.  

Langdon is a life-long resident of Greenville, S.C., and has enjoyed its growth into one of the most dynamic cities in the Southeast. When not working, he enjoys golf, reading and spending time with his family.
