A high profile and highly acclaimed malpractice attorney has filed charges against Henrietta Golding, formerly of the McNair Law Firm. A jury trial has been requested.
Beaufort, South Carolina lawyer Thomas Pendarvis filed a complaint today in the 15th circuit court. The suit specifically lists charges against Henrietta Golding and accomplices that include: 1. Conspiracy, 2. Aiding and Abetting – Breach of Fiduciary Duty, 3. Breach of Fiduciary Duty, 4. Professional Negligence, 5. Negligent Supervision, 6. Breach of Contract
Henrietta Golding is well known locally for her former work representing the City of Myrtle Beach in personnel matters. More recently she was hired to represent the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber as it defends a complaint that the Chamber siphoned millions of tax dollars into crony companies it helped create. That suit continues.
The suite states: In 2014, Peggy Jo Rabon hired Henrietta Golding to represent herself and her company, Rabon & Rabon, Inc., with regard to disputes arising with her daughter, Ms.Mitchell, and her son-in-law, Mr. Mitchell.
Over the course of the next four years, the defendant attorneys destroyed not only the financial legacy of Peggy Jo Rabon, but the interpersonal relationship between her children.
The complaint goes on to read: This campaign of destruction was by design. Rather than meet the stated goal of Jack Rabon, the client, by attempting to preserve the assets and reconcile the family, the Defendant lawyers unilaterally waged a war of inflammation and destruction against the assets of both family companies (Rabon& Rabon, Inc. and MB Boardwalk Entertainment, LLC) and the children of Peggy Jo Rabon.
According to the suit: The intentional actions of the Lawyers were for a singular purpose: to fleece the remaining assets of the Rabon Legacy for the financial benefit of the lawyers. Along the way, David Hicks and his law firm assisted in destroying the family and insuring that the most important asset of the family, MB Boardwalk Entertainment, LLC, remain insolvent.
