After 23 years as a prosecutor, District of South Carolina Criminal Chief Opens Federal Defense practice
MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (March 15, 2022) – Nathan S. Williams, former Criminal Chief at the United States Attorney’s Office in South Carolina, and prosecutor of the death penalty case against Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof, has left the United States Attorney’s Office to start his own boutique law firm focusing on white-collar defense work.
In his time with the South Carolina U.S. Attorney’s Office Williams prosecuted some of South Carolina’s most high-profile cases. They include:
In the last seven years there have been four federal death penalty cases resulting in a death verdict, and Williams has tried two of them. In the District of South Carolina three federal cases have resulted in death sentences, and Williams tried two of them.
Williams will now focus his energy on federal white-collar and corporate defense. Explaining the move, Williams said “for decades I prosecuted complex cases on the federal level. I saw along the way that defending these cases could be more challenging than prosecuting them. I look forward to developing strategies and approaches to help individuals and companies being federally investigated avoid charges. And for those who have already been charged, I am excited to ensure they receive the best results possible.” His firm is located at 260 W. Coleman Blvd., Ste B, Mt. Pleasant, SC, 29464 and www.scfederaldefense.com.
