Wylie W. Clarkson graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2006 and earned his Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration. Three years later, he received his Juris Doctor from the Charleston School of Law.

During his time as a student, Wylie was very successful and built a credible reputation for himself. As a member of the Charleston Law Review, he wrote current and informative legal articles that provided students and readers fresh perspectives on different cases of that time. Some of Wylie’s work was actually published by the journal, which was just the beginning of what would go on to be a promising career in law.

One of Wylie’s most memorable moments during college was serving as an intern for Judge Robert Carr of the U.S. Magistrate Court. Carr has an honorable reputation that has earned him several accolades, including the Legion of Merit. As an intern, Wylie took away valuable gems of wisdom that have undoubtedly played a role in his continued success as an attorney today.

I believe in getting the job done quickly and efficiently. Knowing that I get to help solve people’s problems makes me feel really good.

Wylie started Clarkson & Hale with Eric C. Hale in 2015. For the most part, he handles cases that involve consumer debt collection and commercial debt collection. He is known for being a strong lawyer for creditors in bankruptcy and complex commercial cases in South Carolina.

Wylie’s approach is driven by a key character trait that most find invaluable, and that is that he really cares about his clients and keeps their best interest at heart. He has an ideal blend of innovation and sensibility, so the strategies he cultivates are designed to get his clients the results they deserve. Even though the situations that bring clients to his office aren’t good, they have great experiences and often develop long-term friendships.

A member of the South Carolina Bar Association and the Richland County Bar Association, Wylie is also admitted to practice in the South Carolina Courts, the U.S. District Courts of South Carolina, and the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts in South Carolina.
