Turner Padget Graham & Laney, P.A. is pleased to announce that Shareholder Reginald “Reggie” Belcher has been named a 2021 Leadership in Law honoree by South Carolina Lawyers Weekly. The annual event recognizes law firm leaders from across the Palmetto State who have gone above and beyond in their professions, achieved success in their law practice, made contributions to society and had an impact on their communities. A top ‘Lawyer of the Year’ award will be selected out of the class of honorees and revealed on August 20. Belcher will be honored at the event hosted by South Carolina Lawyers Weekly in Charleston, S.C. and profiled in the publication’s June 21 issue.

“Reggie is a pillar and dedicated member of the firm, and has earned his standing as a trusted advisor to our clients. He is also recognized as a leader throughout the legal industry and in the South Carolina communities we serve,” said C. Pierce Campbell, CEO and shareholder at Turner Padget. “This recognition is well-deserved and reflects his unwavering commitment to client service and to the practice of law at the highest level.”

Belcher counsels clients in state and federal courts and before government agencies in employment litigation, including discrimination, harassment and retaliation claims, as well as the enforcement of non-compete agreements, trade secrets and other restrictive covenants. He also helps employers avoid potential liability by conducting internal HR audits, training supervisors and managers on best HR practices, and developing the necessary employment policies and practices for compliance.

Belcher is among South Carolina's few elite attorneys who are certified as Specialists in Employment and Labor Law by the South Carolina Supreme Court, and he has leveraged his professional experience to serve in more than a dozen leadership positions at Turner Padget and within the local legal, business and civic communities over the past 25 years. As Workplace Law Client Service & Development Leader, Belcher manages more than 20 lawyers and paralegals. He also leads the firm's Statewide Professional Licensing Team, which defends professionals in disciplinary matters before boards regulated by the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.

Belcher earned his law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law, his graduate degree from the University of South Carolina and his undergraduate degree from West Virginia University.
