Wallace has practiced as a trial attorney throughout South Carolina and North Carolina helping clients resolve a wide array of legal issues since 2009.  Wallace is focused on providing outstanding results throughout the entire litigation process and solving his clients’ problems efficiently.

Wallace joined Walker Allen in 2018.  His practice focuses on defending clients in a variety of cases involving automobile and boating liability, trucking litigation, catastrophic personal injury, construction defects, premises liability, dram shop litigation, and coverage disputes.  Wallace actively works with his clients to evaluate claims both prior to and throughout litigation.  He defends both individuals and companies in State and Federal Courts throughout South Carolina and North Carolina.

Wallace began his legal career working for a large-international law firm in North Carolina, where he gained substantial experience defending a commercial boiler manufacturer in multi-jurisdiction, class-action asbestos litigation.  Wallace came to the Lowcountry in 2012, joining a civil defense firm in Charleston, South Carolina where his practice focused on construction defect litigation, motor carrier litigation and dram shop litigation.    Wallace’s experience across these many practice areas allows him to provide meaningful and reliable advice and representation when his clients need it most.

He is a member of the South Carolina State Bar, The North Carolina State Bar, the South Carolina Federal District Court, and the North Carolina Federal District Court for the Eastern, Middle and Western Districts.

Wallace earned his Bachelor of Art degree in Political Science from Hamilton College in 2006, where he was a member of the varsity lacrosse team. He earned his Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2009, where he was a member of the South Carolina Law Review and studied Transnational Dispute Resolution at The Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn (London, England).

While not serving his clients, Wallace enjoys boating, fly-fishing and surfing along the beautiful waterways of the Lowcountry with friends, family and his chocolate lab, Winston.  Wallace spends Saturdays in the Fall smoking meat and cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs.
