    Jillian C.S. Blanchard was born and raised in Wilmington, North Carolina, and is
    happy to be practicing law in her hometown. Her family always said that her
    interests and skills would lead her to a career as a lawyer, and by middle school,
    Jillian knew that was exactly what she wanted to do.

    After years of dreaming about being “under a Carolina sky” at Williams-Brice
    Stadium, Jillian packed her bags and made Columbia, South Carolina, her second
    home. As an undergraduate student, she served as the Professional Development
    Chair for the pre-law academic fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta, and graduated with a
    Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Minor in Southern Studies.

    There was never a question where Jillian would attend law school—The
    University of South Carolina School of Law! As a law student, she served as a
    Production Editor for the ABA Real Property, Trust & Estate Law Journal, was a
    member of the Pro Bono Board and the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force, and
    served as President of the Christian Legal Society. Jillian focused her legal studies
    on anything and everything involving dirt and property—construction and land
    development, property disputes, land use planning, real estate and business
    transactions, wills, trusts and estates!

    After being admitted to practice law in North Carolina, Jillian sat for the South
    Carolina Bar Exam, and is licensed to practice law in both North Carolina and
    South Carolina. Currently, Jillian focuses her practice on construction, general
    counsel work and business transactions.

    Jillian is happily married to her best friend, William (“Bill”) Blanchard, Jr., and
    enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and teacup Chihuahua, Bella
    Ballou. She is a lover of the great outdoors, who enjoys hunting and fishing, and a
    diehard SEC college football fan, who never misses a South Carolina game.
