Michael R. Jeffcoat

PRESIDENT

Michael Jeffcoat

Attorney Michael Jeffcoat believes that when people need assistance in dealing with a professional license or criminal matter, they deserve a zealous advocate who will fight for their rights and their future. 

“We never, ever forget that we hold people’s lives in our hands,” says Jeffcoat. “We’re always mindful of that. Every person in this law firm understands that, and we make it our mission to help the people who have done us the honor of choosing to call The Jeffcoat Firm  for help.”

Mr. Jeffcoat, a native of the Columbia area, founded The Jeffcoat Firm in 1999. He comes from a long line of Jeffcoats from the Midlands of South Carolina, his family having put down roots there in 1775. 

Even as a fourth-grader, Jeffcoat knew he wanted to help people; inspired by his parents’ idealism and commitment to public service, he made a poster declaring his dream of becoming an attorney (which remains a favorite family keepsake).

Education & Professional Background

Michael Jeffcoat earned his undergraduate degree from Wofford College in 1994, double-majoring in political economy and philosophy. He then studied at the University of South Carolina School of Law, where he received his Juris Doctor degree in 1997. During law school, Jeffcoat participated in the moot court competition and had clerkships with the U.S. attorney’s offices in Columbia and Seattle, Washington, as well as with the South Carolina Attorney General’s office and Grand Jury.

After working in two law firms following his law school graduation, Jeffcoat ventured out on his own, launching The Jeffcoat Firm in March of 1999.

Carolina Defense Lawyers

Michael Jeffcoat

The defense practice at The Jeffcoat Firm encompasses a broad range of matters, from professional license defense to criminal matters (including felonies, misdemeanors, and DUIs). What sets The Jeffcoat Firm apart from other firms is its absolute commitment to client service.

Jeffcoat asserts that, “With every interaction, every phone call, and every time we walk into the courtroom, we work very hard every day to make sure that we are serving the client, that we are rolling out the red carpet, that we are going to the ends of the Earth to serve them and help them.”  

When facing a professional complaint or criminal charges, the deep resources of the government can be intimidating. But Jeffcoat has ample experience going up against state and federal prosecutors, and he relishes the fight:

“I love going up against the government and winning,” he says. “I gain a lot of satisfaction from that.”

The Jeffcoat Firm’s commitment to service goes beyond the legal system: The Jeffcoat Firm supports numerous charities, including Harvest Hope Food Bank, the Lexington Interfaith Community Services (LICS) Food Bank, the nonprofit Nickelodeon Theatre, and River Bluff High School.

Personal Life

Mr. Jeffcoat is an avid offshore and fly-fisherman and upland game bird hunter. He is a member of the Nature Conservancy, Quail Forever, and the Congaree Riverkeeper.
