Early in his career, Peter held the position of Senior Staff Attorney (1990 until 1993) at the Charleston County Public Defender’s Office in order to gain valuable trial experience. He personally handled in excess of twelve (12) murders and five hundred (500+) felonies during that time. By the end of his tenure as the Senior Staff Attorney, Brown had tried numerous major felonies ranging from Murder, Trafficking Cocaine, Armed Robbery, Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor, Failure to Stop for Blue Light, to the relatively basic “Throw Down” Drug cases.
Brown obtained many “Not Guilty” verdicts as a result of taking matters to trial in General Sessions Court. Peter Brown developed an equal passion for both Criminal Defense and Personal Injury/Workers’ Compensation work.
