“The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare”

Juma/Kangaa, 1989 NYC Marathon Winner

Running and practicing law have a lot in common. After running a marathon a year for more than a decade – including seven Boston Marathons – Catharine has learned that running up hills allows you to relax on the other side; that running the tangents saves steps; that flat terrain can be boring; that various weather conditions — rain, cold, heat — offer some advantage; and that preparation is the key to finishing a race. All of these principles, absorbed during the miles spent on the road running to prepare for a marathon, equally apply to her daily practice as a litigator.

When not running or practicing law, Catharine enjoys the company of her three beautiful daughters, and she hopes to run a marathon with one of them before she is too old.

Hunter was born and raised in Sumter, S.C., and grew up in a small, tightknit family. After attending the College of Charleston, he left the South to study law in the nation’s capital at American University. Eventually, he decided to return home to begin his legal career closer to his friends and family. Living and learning in different locations like Sumter, Charleston, and Washington, D.C., has taught Hunter that there are often multiple solutions to problems, and different viewpoints for tackling issues. He employs this experience in his professional practice by understanding that effective advocacy requires creativity and open-mindedness in addition to hard work and efficiency.

In his spare time, Hunter enjoys spending time on Lake Murray with his family, playing guitar, and watching the Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Hornets, and Clemson Tigers.
