Buist, Byars & Taylor LLC, Attorneys at Law


Morgan Insley was a pleasure to work with. Accomplished all of our estate planning work in an expedited fashion and provided excellent advice and service.

Mr. & Mrs. Frank Cermak

Excellent customer service! The whole team is very professional, pleasant, and a joy to work with. Their attention to detail is great. As a retired realtor, I understand how much effort is required for each closing to go smoothly, and am very impressed! I highly recommend Joseph Garcia and his team for any closing.

Lisa Watson / Salem, SC

Cityvolve’s work is focused on urban infill and adaptive building reuse projects which are inherently complicated. This is why we depend on guidance from Gray Taylor and the Buist Byars & Taylor team to work through all of our commercial transactions. Their depth of knowledge in all aspects of commercial real estate helps our team achieve successful outcomes.

Jeff Baxter, Partner/Cityvolve LLC

Thank you to Custis Byars and staff for excellent and professional representation and service!

Kimberly V. Cheiken, Esq./DeLand Office Building, LLC, Jacksonville, Florida

We think Hamlin O’Kelley is a “Crackerjack” lawyer.  His management of the trial and the facts were great – in fact, amazing! He responded to everything thrown at him quickly, fully and artfully. We are proud to have him as our counsel and will gladly pass his name along to those in need of skillful representation.

Susan & Paul M. / Seabrook Island

Everyone I have dealt with at Buist Byars & Taylor has been wonderful. Tread Josey is always so very helpful and organized.

Margaret Gibson/Mt. Pleasant

I have worked with Wade Logan on alternative dispute resolutions mostly involving eminent domain cases for several years. I have found him to be completely impartial and willing to learn the nuances of takings and damage claims in these cases.  His pragmatic approach, along with the depth of his trial experience and knowledge of the law make him an excellent mediator, and I would highly recommend him.

Richard D. Bybee, Esq. / Mt. Pleasant

Wade Logan has successfully served as a mediator in dozens of complex cases for my clients over the years. I have the highest respect for Wade as a person and as a professional. He brings many years of experience and a great personal touch to the mediation process. He gets cases settled.

John West, West Law Firm, LLC / Moncks Corner

Second time we have worked with Joseph Garcia on a closing, and on both occasions, he was excellent. Very efficient and very helpful.

J. Nevins/Chapel Hill, NC

I have known Gray Taylor for over 10 years and have utilized his legal services personally, corporately and for partnerships which I manage. Gray is a person of great integrity and someone with great experience in the field of commercial real estate transactions. I find him to be very responsive and pragmatic when he is negotiating on our behalf. I have referred Gray to numerous clients and have had nothing but accolades come back praising how he conducts business.

Gray’s legal knowledge is deep and varied and has proved to be a great asset to us in getting key deals closed. I can strongly recommend Gray and his team if you are looking for the best legal representation in a CRE matter in the Lowcountry.
