Withrow, RN, an experienced Hilton Head Island personal injury lawyer, has the distinction of being one of only a handful of plaintiff attorneys in South Carolina and Georgia who is also a licensed Registered Nurse. She brings more than three decades of experience as a medical professional to her role as an accomplished Beaufort County personal injury, dental malpractice and medical malpractice attorney.
Daphne recently served as co-counsel on a landmark medical malpractice case, which resulted in a $60 million jury verdict.
Originally from Marietta, Ga., Daphne earned a B.S. in Nursing, summa cum laude, from the Medical College of Georgia and spent several years in clinical practice, specializing in women’s health. She gained additional experience working as a medical sales representative for both distributors and manufacturers, focusing on state-of-the-art products used in transfusion medicine.
After a successful career in medical sales, Daphne decided to switch gears by becoming a Legal Nurse Consultant Certified (LNCC), a highly skilled area of nursing that is essential in assisting personal injury and medical malpractice attorneys.
Daphne eventually enrolled at the John Marshall Law School in Atlanta and received her Juris Doctor in 2012. She passed the Georgia Bar later that year and began working as a personal injury attorney at a large insurance defense firm in Marietta, Ga.
After relocating to Hilton Head Island in 2013, Daphne worked for a prestigious law firm in Savannah, where she was instrumental in securing several multimillion dollar settlements. Driven by the desire to work and contribute to the Hilton Head community where she lives, she passed the South Carolina Bar and joined the team at Olivetti, McCray and Withrow, LLC. She currently serves on the board of directors for Hospice Care of the Lowcountry, the region’s only nonprofit hospice organization.
