I founded this practice with the belief that I could achieve my clients’ goals while providing personal service and plain talk not often found at other law firms. My successes and ongoing relationships with my clients show that these goals are achievable.
I was born and raised in Kingstree, South Carolina and lived there until moving to Greenville to attend Furman University where I graduated in 2000 with a degree in Religion. After attending the University of South Carolina School of Law, I returned to Greenville and have been in private practice since 2004.
At the outset of my career, I focused primarily on Probate and Family Court matters, honing my knowledge of the law as well as my trial skills. In 2010, I started the Law Office of W. Cory Hughes, LLC. Here, I continue to build upon my experience in the Probate and Family Courts and have expanded my practice to include successes in other civil matters as well. I have found that my relationships with my clients are the most rewarding aspects of my job.
After my first year in Greenville as a student at Furman University, I never thought I would live anywhere else. The people of Greenville are wonderful in the ways they work together to make this city better. Following in their footsteps, I volunteer time as a Den Leader for Cub Scout Pack 221 in Mauldin. I was a founding member of the board of directors for YouthBASE which provides behavioral and educational support to at-risk children. I also attend Advent United Methodist Church where I served as a caregiver for the Transformers Sunday school class and a member of the Evangelism Committee and Children’s Council. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor cooking and outings with my wife, sons, and dog.
