Karen Floyd earned her juris doctorate from the University of South Carolina Law School, where she was elected President of the Student Bar Association, before embarking upon a successful legal career. Floyd’s legal expertise is a critical asset for her business interests as well as for many of her clients and for the boards and organizations she serves.
From law school, Floyd worked in Senate Research as a staff attorney, where she learned the inner workings of state and local government. Karen’s passion for children’s issues directed her away from the staff attorney position, and into the court room where she was regarded as a fierce children’s advocate. She was then recruited into private practice where she quickly ascended into a partnership. She was elected the first and youngest Chief Magistrate in the state of South Carolina’s history.
