Attorney at Law

Patrick Sharpe

Attorney Patrick Sharpe’s career has given him a broad understanding of the legal landscape. After earning his J.D. from the Charleston School of Law in 2012, he worked as both a defender and a prosecutor for a variety of public offices. However, Attorney Sharpe’s career in prosecution lacked what led him to pursue law in the first place: the ability to help people in need. He later opened his own practice in 2016. Attorney Sharpe now dedicates his career to defending the rights of South Carolina residents. From his office in Columbia, Patrick provides dedicated legal counsel to clients throughout the state. Contact him if you live in Lexington, Irmo, Orangeburg, or Camden.
