Attorney Profile

South Carolina Personal Injury Attorney Scott Drescher at Work in Charleston SCD. Scott Drescher attended the University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University.  He graduated with a B.A from WKU in 1991.  While attending undergraduate school, he was a member of Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity and was captain of the varsity swim team.  Thereafter, he attended the Ohio Northern University, Claude W. Pettit College of Law.   While at ONU law, he was vice-president of Phi Alpha Delta, and taught street law at a local high school.

In 1992, he clerked in the legal department of a Fortune 500 company where he was put in charge of drafting a 25 million dollar corporate contract.  Between 1992 and 1994, he clerked at Willamowski and Willamowski during the school year, and clerked at a defense firm, Cole and Moore, during the summer and Christmas breaks.   It was during his position at Cole and Moore where Mr. Drescher had the unique experience to see how insurance companies make decisions and handle personal injury victims.

After graduating from ONU law school in 1994, he joined Stoney and Stoney, an old Charlestonian law firm.  Shortly thereafter, he handled all the large and complex litigation files for the firm.  Three years later, Mr. Drescher joined a large plaintiff law firm.  During his last six years with this large plaintiff’s firm, Mr. Drescher was in charge of handling the big cases for its main office in Charleston.   Thereafter, he opened Drescher Law Firm, LLC.

Mr. Drescher is admitted to the South Carolina Bar and United States District Court, District of South Carolina.  He has handled numerous complex civil cases, including wrongful death cases.  He has been victorious in many civil trials.  In fact, in the last fifteen years, every one of his clients received more money after going to court than what was offered prior to trial, except one time.*

Mr. Drescher received a degree from WKU in psychology and sociology.  His education and knowledge in these areas helps him understand the thinking process of juries.  Understanding how potential jurors think individually and on jury panels is a very helpful tool in preparing and trying cases.  Having a background in psychology and sociology, in addition to Mr. Drescher’s experience in trying large civil cases, has helped him become a very successful trial attorney.
