CHARLESTON, S.C.—There is no one path to becoming an attorney. Many lawyers forge successful legal practices after first developing their talents in different fields. With that in mind, Womble Bond Dickinson is pleased to welcome Pam Larson to the firm’s Mass Torts Litigation Team and Charleston office as a staff attorney.

Larson comes to the firm from Charleston Pro Bono Legal Services were she served as a staff attorney focusing on helping survivors of human trafficking and victim rights. In this role she represented clients in criminal and family court, drafted pleadings and negotiated settlements, represented clients and prepared documents during immigration proceedings, and trained state and local agencies on the South Carolina Victims’ Bill of Rights and Human Trafficking laws. She has experience in civil and criminal litigation. 

She also is a U.S. Army veteran, having earned the Purple Heart after sustaining injuries while deployed in Iraq. In 2013, Larson was named a finalist for Military Spouse of the Year for her work advocating for veterans and their families dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and in 2012, she was named the Call of Duty Endowment Outstanding Female Veteran.

She is 2019 graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law.  While in law school, Larson clerked at the South Carolina Attorney General Office in the Sexually Violent Predator Unit and for the South Carolina House of Representatives Ethics Committee. Following law school, she served as a Judicial Law Clerk for the Honorable Maité Murphy.
