Trial Lawyer Deon Tedder Joins RPWB
Trial attorney Deon Tedder has joined Rogers, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman, LLC, where he will focus on personal injury, mass torts and criminal defense work out of the firm’s Mount Pleasant and Columbia offices.
Tedder joins RPWB after working at David Aylor Law Offices for the past five years, where he helped many clients in the Charleston area with personal injury and criminal defense matters. He is honored as a 2022-2023 Rising Star in personal injury litigation by Super Lawyers and as a Top 40 under 40 personal injury attorney by the National Black Lawyers Association.
“We are thrilled to have Deon join us,” said Nina Fields Britt, managing attorney of RPWB. “He has an outstanding reputation as a trial lawyer and as a person who is genuinely community service-oriented. He brings a lot to the table for his clients and also for our law firm.”
A resident of North Charleston, Tedder has spent much of his life devoted to public service. He currently serves District 109 in the S.C. House of Representatives and is running for an open seat in the S.C. Senate (District 42). But his interest in being a voice and public servant for the underserved goes back much further.
While in college, he worked in the office of the late Senator Edward (Ted) Kennedy, where he assisted on the Health, Education, Labor & Pension (HELP) Committee. As a law student at the University of South Carolina School of Law, he advocated for the least fortunate among us by serving as a Guardian Ad Litem for Richland County’s Court Appointed Special Advocates Program (CASA).
Tedder also represented indigent clients in courtroom proceedings in Magistrate Court through the University of South Carolina’s Criminal Law Practice Clinic. He served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable L. Casey Manning in Columbia.
Outside of practicing law, he can be found volunteering at community events, mentoring young students, and advocating for all South Carolinians to have a better quality of life.
Tedder is a proud graduate of South Carolina State University Honors College and the University of South Carolina School of Law. He is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
In addition to being licensed to practice law in South Carolina, Tedder also is licensed in North Carolina.
