As a young adult, Sydney found herself pondering what kind of “job” would allow her the opportunity to work with people who really needed her help. As she grew older, she began to realize that practicing law and specifically, becoming a plaintiff’s trial lawyer, would afford just that opportunity.
Now, Sydney proudly describes her “job” as a new opportunity each day to help someone who is going through some of the most difficult circumstances of a lifetime.
Ms. Lynn’s practice is devoted exclusively to working with injured individuals, whether from a car accident, a fall, an on-the-job injury, or a defective product.

Sydney strives to make her enthusiasm and support for her clients evident throughout her representation. She views the practice of law as an opportunity to learn something new each and every day through each unique set of circumstances. Since graduation from law school, it took just a short time for Sydney to learn that her heart’s desire was to become a plaintiff’s trial lawyer.
Today, Sydney practices in the firm’s Columbia office and represents citizens of the Midlands and surrounding communities, where she also resides with her husband and two children. During law school, Sydney was a founding member of the school’s Women in Law Organization and she remains involved in the South Carolina Women Lawyers Association and the Coastal Women Lawyers Association.
Sydney has taken an active role in various fundraising efforts benefiting the March of Dimes, the Community Kitchen and other local organizations. Sydney, who previously worked at the firm’s Myrtle Beach office, is serving on the “Executive Committee of the Horry County Bar,” as she transitions into the Midlands.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"Sydney wasso professional and was prompt and understanding of my situation and concerns."
Every case is different. The facts, the clients’ injuries, and the way the clients progress throughout the case are all factors that can affect the outcome. Once a client has been released from the doctor and I have all the medical records, I investigate each facet of the case and look at it from every angle. I gather all the information about the progression of treatment, future prognosis, and investigate the actions of the defendant before I begin to estimate what a case is worth. There is simply too much information in each claim to hazard a guess at the beginning, but I promise to work thoroughly and diligently until I know exactly what we have ahead of us.
