Meet South Carolina Injury Attorney Donovan Malloy

Attorney Donovan Malloy

Donovan was born and raised in Hartsville, South Carolina. He attended the public schools of Darlington County, graduating from Hartsville High School in 2009. After playing football for two years at South Carolina State University, Donovan later graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. Immediately after graduation, he began working in the Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina’s office as the executive assistant to Yancey McGill and Henry McMaster. During his tenure, he worked specifically on projects which focused on bringing resources to the elderly.

After spending a couple of years working in state government, Donovan realized that he wanted to continue his quest of serving the rural areas by attending law school. Donovan graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2019. While in law school, he was active in the Matthew Perry Chapter of the Black Law Students Association and an active member of the American Constitution Society. Donovan also worked in the Governor’s office under Henry McMaster as his law clerk and staff member throughout his law school career.

In 2021, Donovan was part of the legal team which reached a landmark settlement of $88 million for the Charleston Nine. This settlement is believed to be the largest civil rights settlement for individual cases in US History. We invite you to read more about how justice was served for the victims and survivors.

Donovan is a lifelong member of Jerusalem Baptist Church in Hartsville, South Carolina. He is also an active member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated.

When not in the office, Donovan enjoys playing and watching sports, cooking and spending time with his family and goldendoodle, Shiloh.
