Brent understands the difficulties that clients can face in the aftermath of an accident.

He jumps in and marshals all of his legal resources to fight for what’s right.
Many clients seem surprised that Brent answers their calls personally, meets with them face to face frequently and makes it clear that he is truly invested in their well-being and success. That’s a reflection of the family atmosphere that the legal team at Stewart Law Offices has built over the years.
Brent’s commitment to serving clients has led to significant successes during his legal career. His most notable achievement is that he has earned a lifetime membership to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum* and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.

The son of a schoolteacher and counselor, Brent grew up in Wheeling, West Virginia. From an early age, the value of an education and hard work were instilled in him by his family.

He graduated from The Ohio State University in 1986 with Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. Three years later, Brent completed his law degree at West Virginia University School of Law.
His early career began in his hometown of Wheeling at Bordas and Bordas. Brent then took a leap overseas to work as the Attorney General for the U.S. Pacific Island Territory of Guam. Two years later, Brent returned stateside to practice law in Charleston, S.C. In 1995, he opened Stewart Law Office’s first location in Rock Hill.
Since then, the firm has expanded to serve clients in Columbia, Spartanburg, Camden, Beaufort** and Charlotte, N.C. No matter the location, clients know that they can find an advocate they trust at Stewart Law Offices.
Brent’s employees speak of him with admiration, praising his ability to not only earn but also deserve the trust of his clients and co-workers. He treats them all like family, and their health and happiness are always a top priority.
Brent will proudly tell you that his wife and children are a huge motivation for his success. Just like the attorney who inspired him when he was a young kid cutting grass, Brent hopes to set an example for future generations about the importance of fairness, empathy, justice and dedication.
Brent will be the first to tell you that he hopes you never need his number, but if you do, Stewart Law Offices will fight hard for you during such a stressful time.
