Billy Gunn is recognized as one of South Carolina’s pre-eminent trial lawyers and has been for a number of years. After public school in Spartanburg County he graduated from The Citadel and then served in the United States Army, including one year as an automatic weapons platoon leader in the Republic of Vietnam. Thereafter, he attended the University of South Carolina School of Law and served two years as Law Clerk to Honorable Robert F Chapman, United States District Judge for the District of South Carolina. In 1974 he joined Holcombe Bomar and has practiced with the firm continuously for over forty years.

Billy has maintained an active civil litigation practice throughout his career. He has tried literally hundreds of wide-ranging cases to conclusion in state and federal courts across South Carolina. Likewise, he has accumulated over thirty reported decisions published by the South Carolina Court of Appeals, the South Carolina Supreme Court, and the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

In recognition of his work as a trial lawyer, Billy was inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers in 1992  and was State Chair from 1998-2000. He  is also  a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. 

Currently, Billy’s practice focuses on medical malpractice defense, product liability, and governmental defense in state and federal courts throughout South Carolina. Likewise, he calls upon his vast experience as a trial lawyer  in serving as a certified mediator in state and federal court.
