A review of Randell Stoney's vocations and avocations leaves a decided impression: he is a steward as well as an attorney. Consider his service on the Advisory Board for the Center for Heirs Property, a non-profit organization formed to protect the property rights of "family land" owned by low-income residents of the Low Country; or his planting of rice plots for wildlife such as deer, turkey and ducks; or his defense of a small business against a frivolous lawsuit. What description is better than steward?
For over 28 years, Stoney has focused his law practice on premises and product liability, construction law and litigation and general liability. He holds an AV Martindale-Hubbell rating, representing the highest level of professional excellence, and is listed in the 2008 and 2009 editions of Super Lawyers as one of the top attorneys in the state of South Carolina. He is a member of the Defense Research Institute, the South Carolina Defense Trial Lawyers Association, and the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC).
Stoney has deep roots in Charleston and the Low Country. His grandfather practiced law in Charleston close to 100 years ago. Prior to entering private practice, Stoney served as both assistant ninth circuit solicitor for Charleston County and as deputy solicitor for Berkeley County.
Over the years, he has been actively involved with the American Cancer Society, and he has served on the board of directors for Goodwill Industries and for the Preservation Society of Charleston, as chairman of the Commissioners of the Pilotage for the Port of Charleston, and as junior warden of St. John’s Berkeley, where he is still active. He is a former member of the alumni board at the College of Charleston and currently serves on the advisory board for the Center for Heirs Property, an element of the Costal Community Foundation. Mr. Stoney recently became a member of the Trident Technical College Foundation Board.
