For 24 years, Greenville attorney W. Andrew Arnold’s diverse practice has covered a broad range of litigation matters, with a focus on labor and employment law, business litigation and nursing home abuse and neglect. Mr. Arnold’s litigation experience includes representing individuals and small businesses in both federal and state courts in cases involving such issues as unpaid compensation, wrongful discharge, non-compete agreements, breach of contract, trade secrets, shareholder oppression, wage and hour disputes and more.
In 2001, Mr. Arnold was presented with his first nursing home negligence case. The result: A multimillion-dollar verdict against the nursing home – the largest verdict at the time in Union County – led him to expand his firm’s focus to include serious personal injury litigation. He has seen the devastation suffered by the elderly and the families who love them when a resident is abused or neglected by their nursing home. His strong sense of fairness and justice has compelled him to pursue wrongdoers whose neglect has led to broken bones, pressure ulcers, loss of limbs, traumatic brain injuries, and wrongful death.
A skilled and respected attorney in Greenville, S.C., he has been named a Super Lawyer six of the past seven years – an annual distinction held by only the top 5% of attorneys in each state. As an employment lawyer and litigator, he has also been recognized by The U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings. Greenville Magazine has named him to their list of the Greenville Magazine’s Legal Elite. However, he is most proud of the cards and letters he receives from his clients who appreciate the zeal and passion with which he pursues their cases.
Mr. Arnold started his own law practice in 1994 at the age of 26. Until 2016, he was the founder and owner of The Law Office of W. Andrew Arnold, P.C. At that time, Mr. Arnold was presented with a chance to lead the Horton Law Firm’s litigation efforts. It was an opportunity he did not want to pass up. He is grateful to be a shareholder of the Horton Law Firm.
Mr. Arnold maintains two standalone websites related a couple of his practice areas: Greenville Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Guide and Beat Your Non-Compete.
