Creditors’ Rights & Bankruptcy Bankruptcy Litigation Finance Commercial / Corporate Litigation


Manufacturing Financial Institutions

Weyman helps creditors resolve nonperforming commercial accounts, whether that resolution is found in a federal bankruptcy court, a South Carolina state court or in an out of court workout. His client's needs drive his areas of practice. When local municipalities needed help understanding the treatment of tax claims in bankruptcy cases, Weyman's response was, "I can help." Prior to attending law school, Weyman served his community as a sheriff's deputy, where he gained experience building rapport with people from differing backgrounds.
