Vicki Koutsogiannis, Attorney
Vicki Koutsogiannis recently joined the firm in 2014 as an Associate. A native of Greenville, South Carolina, Vicki graduated in 2014 from the University of South Carolina School of Law where she earned a CALI Award for Excellence. While in law school, Vicki served as a guardian ad litem with Richland County CASA, treasurer for the school’s Children’s Advocacy Law Society, and a member of the school’s Pro Bono Board, where she made time to volunteer for organizations like the Cooperative Ministry, Ask A Lawyer, SC ETV Radio’s pledge drive, and a rehabilitation center. She also assisted the author of an Amicus brief before the South Carolina Supreme Court which advocated on behalf of the right to a jury trial for juvenile offenders in South Carolina.
Before law school, Vicki graduated cum laude from Stony Brook University in New York, where she studied Political Science and was a member of several honors societies. In 2010, having attained her Bachelor of Arts, she moved back to South Carolina to begin working at a law firm in Greenville and apply to law school. During her time there, she gained practical experience working on criminal defense, family law, and personal injury cases.
Vicki’s parents emigrated from Sparta, Greece before she was born and started their family-owned and operated restaurants (Twin Palmetto) at which her father can still be found working hard six days a week, as he has since it opened almost thirty years ago. Thanks to her parents, both Vicki and her brother speak, read, and write Greek fluently.
In her free time she enjoys cooking, running, leisurely reading, and spending time with friends and family.
