Allyce Bailey manages a diverse caseload of litigated matters arising out of alleged tortious conduct in areas including but not limited to premises liability, construction defect, automobile/trucking accidents, and business torts.

The nature of Allyce's practice has allowed her to gain invaluable jury trial and motions practice experience. Allyce is focused on providing outstanding results throughout the entire litigation process and solving her clients problems efficiently.

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.

Allyce serves on the board of directors for the Richland County Court Appointed Advocates, Compass Community Development Corporation, and the South Carolina Women Lawyers Association of which she also serves as the Chairperson of the organization’s Community Outreach Committee.
