As a federal prosecutor, Mr. Lofton was involved in numerous high profile prosecutions.
During his tenure as a federal prosecutor, Mr. Lofton prosecuted a number of political corruption cases including two former members of the Charleston County Council, a former Charleston County Police Chief, a former North Charleston Police Chief, a former State Senator and a former Sheriff of Berkeley County. In addition to political corruption cases, Mr. Lofton prosecuted numerous drug smuggling, bank fraud, and other serious federal crimes.
As a result of Mr. Lofton’s extensive trial experience gained as a federal prosecutor, he has been able to parlay his vast trial experience into defending those charged with serious criminal offenses and representing those injured by the negligence of others.

Since entering private practice, Mr. Lofton’s goal has always been to provide personal service on a personal basis to each and every client.
