Over a Decade of Experience

We are personal injury attorneys dedicated to helping seriously injured people seek justice in South Carolina. When serious injury or death is caused by the negligence of another party, a personal injury claim is often the only way for an accident victim to pursue financial compensation. The types of damages sought will vary from case to case, but one thing holds true in all cases of serious injury or death: You need a qualified, experienced personal injury lawyer on your side – a litigator who has a reputation for excellence in court.

Our founding attorney, Michael Melonakos, is a respected South Carolina trial lawyer who has dedicated his professional career to protecting the rights of the injured. At the Melonakos Law Firm, we maintain a smaller caseload so that we can give each person we represent the personal attention he or she deserves. Your case is important, and you deserve an attorney that genuinely cares about you, your family, and your case.

Our practice was built around achieving results. As a former insurance defense attorney, Michael Melonakos has deep insight into how insurance companies work and the inner workings of the insurance process. He knows what it will take to maximize the amount of compensation paid in a personal injury case. As a testament to our professional skills, we have recovered more than $25 million for our clients to date.

Attorney Michael Melonakos

As a young lawyer, Michael spent several years working for two of Atlanta’s premier insurance defense firms. He represented locally and nationally-known trucking companies, automobile insurers, and premises liability insurers in defense of lawsuits filed by accident victims. When Mike made a career move to the plaintiff’s side, his tenure in the large law firm environment and representation of prominent insurance companies provided Mike the experience necessary to obtain hundreds of favorable settlements and verdicts for his personal injury clients.

After a decade of practicing law in Atlanta, Michael and his wife Bren decided it was time to move back to Bren’s hometown of Greenville, SC so they could help accident victims in the Upstate area and be a part of a beautiful, growing city.

Michael’s experience in Atlanta’s fast-paced environment gives him a big advantage, as he has seen every type of injury and fact pattern and knows how to maximize the value of every case.
