Snow Law Firm has new location, new name after 38 years in Florence

May 16, 2019

FLORENCE, S.C. – The Snow Law Firm in Florence has relocated to 900 W. Evans St. (corner of Evans and Pettigrew) after 38 years as Dusenbury & Snow, P.A. in the old post office building in downtown Florence.

The post office building, which was built in 1906, has been purchased by Francis Marion University, making the move necessary, said Stuart W. Snow Sr. of the law firm.

The firm was started in 1952 by Snow’s father-in-law, Richard “Dick” Dusenbury. Snow said Dusenbury served as 12 Circuit solicitor in the Pee Dee for about 10 years and reopened his private practice in the 1970s. Snow joined his father-in-law in 1984 at Dusenbury & Snow. Dusenbury retired in 1993.

Currently practicing with Snow is his son, Wesley Snow. Joshua Bailey joins them today as the third attorney in the practice.

Chris Yates and Stephanie Stokes also work at the law office.

The group specializes in family court law, mediation, divorce and other general practice areas.

“I enjoy family court mediation and helping people going through difficult times,” Snow said.

He said he likes the fact that living in a smaller city gives them the opportunity to practice in many different areas.

Snow said Bailey will also handle criminal law.

Snow started out in Atlanta, and then he and his wife, Susan (Dusenbury) Snow, a native of Florence, decided to move to Florence.

“I have never regretted it,” he said. “It is a marvelous place to live and work.”

He said it is small enough that most lawyers know each other and are friends.

He quickly added, “But we fight like cats and dogs in the courtroom.”

Snow received his bachelor of arts in economics from the University of Virginia in 1979. He earned his juris doctorate from the University of Virginia School Of Law in 1982.

He is past president of the Florence County Bar Association, an associate member of the Board of Law Examiners and a certified family court mediator.

He is an active member of the Florence community. He has coached youth sports and has been a deacon and member of the Chancel Choir of First Presbyterian Church. He and his wife have two sons, Wesley and Daniel.
