Turner v. Price: Derek Enderlin's case in the United States Supreme Court
Derek Enderlin has had a case accepted to the United States Supreme Court. The Court accepts only 100 of the 10,000 cases filed every year. This firm knows only a handful of lawyers who have had a case in the US Supreme Court in the upstate, and none that practice criminal law exclusively. It is a great honor to be an attorney with a case in the United States Supreme Court. It is also a testimony of Derek's commitment to his client's rights. This case is about whether individuals have the right to an attorney before they are put in jail for failure to pay child support. Derek began this fight almost 5 years before it got to the United States Supreme Court with numerous decisions in the South Carolina courts. Most people assume that you have a right to an attorney before you can be put in jail, but South Carolina routinely puts thousands of people in jail without legal representation for failing to pay child support. Derek believes this is not only a deprivation of constitutional rights, it also ultimately harms the children involved. For a more detailed account, please click case. You can find Derek's brief as well as several friend of the court briefs.
