Why I started this firm
After serving as an assistant solicitor in Spartanburg, Chief of Staff for Representative Trey Gowdy, and a year and a half in private practice, I have decided to form a new law firm, Cindy Crick Law. My primary practice areas include Title IX and Student Conduct Issues, Government and Internal Investigations, and Criminal Law.
My background as a prosecutor, Congressional Chief of Staff, and private practitioner has given me the opportunity to serve people in so many different ways. I have been on the other side in criminal cases and have worked with almost every level of state and federal government. My top priority is using my unique experience to protect my clients’ rights and reputations.
I earned my bachelor's degree from Hollins University in Virginia and went on to receive a law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law. I took a job with the Seventh Circuit Solicitor's Office in Spartanburg where I was chosen to spearhead the Violence Against Women Unit. For eight years, I prosecuted domestic violence cases, sexual assaults, homicides, and co-prosecuted a death penalty case.
In 2010, I made the leap to the world of federal government and eventually became Chief of Staff for Representative Trey Gowdy. I managed three offices in Greenville, Spartanburg and Washington, D.C., and acted as a liaison between constituents and various federal agencies and Congressional committees.
In the community, I am a graduate of Leadership Greenville Class 40, serve on the boards of the Greenville Humane Society and Roper Mountain Science Center Association, and do pro-bono work for the Spartanburg City Homeless Court.
After sixteen years of public service and a year and a half in private practice, I am excited to start a firm focused on providing guidance and assistance to address the particular legal challenges faced by my clients.
