Becoming a trial lawyer was inevitable for Bennett J. Schiller, III. He was born in Savannah, Georgia in 1968 the son of Bennett and Marie Schiller. Never having much in the material sense but having parents who put others first, taught Mr. Schiller to have compassion for others. When his family moved to Columbia, South Carolina for his father to attend Columbia Bible College times got even tougher. His dad went to school by day and worked in the cotton mill at night. This impressed upon Mr. Schiller at an early age that nothing replaces hard work and preparation.

After graduating from Lexington High School as the Senior Class President, Mr. Schiller earned a full four year Citadel Scholars Scholarship for academics to The Citadel. While there, Mr. Schiller excelled both in the classroom and in public service to his school and community. He served as the President of Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fraternity. He also was President of the College Republicans. Mr. Schiller earned many awards including Presidents List, Dean’s List, National Merit Scholars, and National Beta Club awards. He was a member of The Citadel Inn of Court and a member of The 1990 Summerall Guards. He earned a BA in Political Science in 1990 from The Citadel.

Before attending law school, Mr. Schiller worked as an office services assistant at McNair Law Firm in Columbia, South Carolina. That is where he met his wife, Karoline Higgins Schiller. Today, they have four beautiful, healthy children. During his time in law school at the University of South Carolina School of Law, Mr. Schiller worked for a successful personal injury firm Lee, Eadon, Isgett and Popwell. It is there that Mr. Schiller developed the passion for serving injured families. While in law school Mr. Schiller served his fellow students and the student Senator to the University of South Carolina’s Student Senate. He also was the President of Phi Delta Phi, The Federalist Society and the Law Republicans. Mr. Schiller enjoyed volunteering at many local charities and organizations including the Oliver Gospel Mission and Harvest Hope Food Bank.

After graduating from USC School of Law in 1994, Mr. Schiller went to work for a local personal injury firm in Rock Hill, South Carolina. He quickly realized the need to be on his own and co-founded the firm Atwater, Schiller and Reeves. During this time Mr. Schiller grew his practice to include Lancaster, Chester, York and Columbia, SC. Mr. Schiller was elected to serve the 16th Circuit as the Circuit Representative on the Young Lawyers Division of the South Carolina Bar Association. Continuing his public service, Mr. Schiller served on the Board of Directors for the Upper Palmetto YMCA. He and his wife have served on committee for Young Life of York County. Mr. Schiller is also a recent past President of his Home Owners Association.

Recently Mr. Schiller moved his family to Beaufort to get back to his roots. He opened the Beaufort Office in November of 2011 and has grown steadily. He jumped right into serving the community. He is currently on the Board of Directors for the YMCA of Beaufort. He is a member of the Leadership Beaufort Class of 2014. Mr. Schiller currently represents many locals and looks forward to many years of service to the Low Country.

Fighting for others and standing up for the rights of individuals no matter how difficult the circumstances are is what Bennett J. Schiller, III stands for. He has built his firm Schiller & Hamilton to do just that. At Schiller & Hamilton, LLC we take seriously our obligation to serve others and Mr. Schiller sets the example.

  • CLADE V. CHAMPION LABORATORIES
    Petitioner: Attorney for the petitioner, Vivian Clade. In her case against the defendant, Champion Laboratories and Continental Insurance Company. Clade drove a forklift for the shipping department of the defendant. She suffered a back injury and was sent to the company doctor, who recommended therapy and light duty at work. When she did not progress in therapy she was referred to another doctor who diagnosed a more serious back condition. She filed for workers' compensation and her claim was denied. This decision was affirmed by an appellate panel, the circuit court and the court of appeals.

  • -Mac M. “If you ride, you need an attorney that rides as well. Bennett doesn’t just own a motorcycle he rides. He handled my motorcycle accident professionally and quickly. If 5 stars is tops then the Schiller Law Firm gets 6.” -Tim H. “Bennett and Liz immediately took my son and me in during a very confusing time in our lives. Their warm and family demeanor with us was exactly what we needed at the time. They continue to go above and beyond any expectations that we had and quickly removed any doubt that they had our best interest in mind at all times!” -Andy K. “I was rear-ended by a driver who admitted he was totally at fault. When I talked with his insurance company’s representative – she told me to have everything fixed right and then to sent her all of my bills when completed and then she would decide ”what was reasonable for me to be reimbursed.” I had this sickening feeling after I hung up and knew I needed a professional experienced attorney to represent me since I don’t know anything about what is reasonable, legal and applicable in this situation. This was my first accident of this kind in over fifty years of driving and I was shocked that I may be out of pocket for something I did not cause nor was liable. I was hoping to find the second coming of Atticus Finch. A person I trust recommended Bennett Schiller and I liked him the first time we met. It was clear that he has been thru these battles many times and his assurance that he would do his absolute best for me – made me feel much more at ease. The second time we met in his office he gave me a watermelon to take home and enjoy (kind of what I would expect of an Atticus Finch). And the third time was the signing of the necessary documents to finally put this all to rest. Along the way there was always constant communication either thru emails or by phone and throughout this period Bennett gave me updates so I never felt like I was on my own. Thank you for your efforts Bennett. I really appreciate what you have done for me.”
