CHARLESTON, S.C. — Shumaker is pleased to announce the appointment of Colleen M. Miller as the firm's Director of Recruitment. This strategic move comes as the firm experiences a surge in demand across all service lines, driven by a combination of client growth and lateral attorney interest in the joining the firm.
