Steve Snyder has actively litigated and tried civil cases for 30 years and has focused almost exclusively on representing and defending physicians, hospitals, nurses and other medical providers in a wide range of medical negligence and healthcare lawsuits since 1995. Additionally, he has represented physicians in matters before the state medical board, served as hospital counsel in regulatory and compliance matters, authored numerous hospital and medical care provider policies, guidelines and patient consents, and defended pharmaceutical and products liability cases. He regularly advises hospitals and medical practices on risk management issues and ways to prevent lawsuits while improving patient care and safety. Steve has also been the speaker for numerous medical, hospital and nursing groups and conferences across South Carolina and internationally on risk management and medico-legal issues.

Steve is an ordained elder in his church, actively serves on the boards of several charitable, service and ministry organizations, regularly leads and takes foreign mission trips, plays golf poorly, treasures time with his family and the blessing of great friendships, and feels richly blessed to be able to live and work in Upstate South Carolina.
