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. With the addition of Grey Wicker into what became Spears & Wicker, PA, she remained in the position of litigation paralegal. In 2017, Alison was 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. She and Grey Wicker are pleased to be the sole employees in the Spartanburg office and feel like this affords them an exclusive opportunity to advocate for their clients.
While Alison’s main focus has been in medical malpractice and fighting for justice for her injured clients, she has vast experience in other areas of civil litigation, including general personal injury, trucking accident litigation and class actions.
Alison resides in Spartanburg, where she acts as an ambassador of Backpack Buddies, addressing 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 logged hundreds of miles and raised tens of thousands of dollars promoting awareness of the importance of early detection and the relentless search for a cure.
