About Adam Russo and Jim Courtney

In 2016, firm founder John Drennan recognized the value of adding former prosecutors to his already talented team. John initially hired Adam Russo, who by that point had prosecuted over 300 DUIs and helped the 14th Circuit Solicitor's Office better protect the citizens of Beaufort County from drunk drivers. Adam and John worked side by side, and Adam learned a great deal of John's specific defense techniques, finding he was able to effectively utilize them alongside John.

Due to the exceptionally effective combination of John and Adam's efforts, the Drennan Law Firm decided to add yet another prosecutor in mid-2018. Jim Courtney joined the team and provided his own unique talents and insights, as he was a former SC Highway Patrol DUI prosecutor for Berkeley County and a former police officer in Missouri.

Today, Adam and Jim carry on John's legacy of effective, responsible, and professional DUI defense.

We know how police officers and prosecuting attorneys think. We used to be them! Our dedication to high-quality service and seeking the best possible outcome is unwavering. Our firm is with you all the way.

Jim and Adam have extensive trial experience in a variety of case types, including domestic assault, felony DUI, drug crimes, and more. Adam also has trained at the National College for DUI Defense, and a lifetime member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL).
