At its annual meeting November 10-13, 2016, the South Carolina Defense Trial Attorneys’ Association (SCDTAA) voted Murphy & Grantland, P.A. shareholder Anthony Livoti to the office of President-Elect. Livoti will assume the office of President of the organization in November 2017.

“Besides the opportunity to be an effective advocate for my clients, there are few things professionally I’ve enjoyed as much as my participation in and association with the SCDTAA,” said Livoti. “To be elected to this position is both a privilege and an honor for me.”

Organized in 1968, the SCDTAA has grown to an association of approximately 1,000 members who practice law in a multitude of areas, all almost exclusively on the defense side of the aisle. The group acts as a liaison between the Defense Research Institute (DRI) and insurance industry claims managers.

“This is quite an honor for Anthony and for our firm,” said Murphy & Grantland managing partner, J.R. Murphy. “The SCDTAA members are to be commended for their election of a very competent practitioner for such an important position, and we are, of course, very happy for and very proud of our partner Anthony for his election.”
