After earning a Bachelors Degree from Wofford College, Alison joined the law firm of Michael E. Spears, PA in January of 1993 as a litigation paralegal. 24 years later and after the addition of Grey Wicker into what became Spears & Wicker, PA, she is delighted to bring her years of knowledge and experience, both inside and out of the courtroom, to the Spartanburg office of Parham Smith & Archenhold, LLC.
While Alison's main focus has been in medical malpractice and fighting for justice for her injured clients, she also has vast experience in other areas of civil litigation, including general personal injury, trucking accident litigation and class actions.
Alison and her husband of nearly 25 years reside in Spartanburg, where she also acts as an ambassador of Backpack Buddies, which addresses the issue of weekend and holiday hunger for elementary school children in the community. Since surviving a battle with breast cancer in 2005, she has also logged hundreds of miles and raised tens of thousands of dollars in the ever pressing issue of early detection and the search for a cure.
