Lucas C. Marchant
I was born and raised in Greenville where my family has been an integral part of the upstate for over 125 years. After graduating from J.L. Mann High school, I earned my BA from the University of South Carolina and then my J.D. from Mississippi College School of Law. It was a natural choice for me to return to Greenville because I want to serve our community. I returned in 2004 where I began my legal career with the 13th Circuit Solicitors Office.
During my 12 years of litigation as a prosecutor, I handled juvenile cases in Family Court, misdemeanor cases in Magistrate Court and felonies in General Sessions. For more than half of my career, I was the Assistant Deputy Solicitor. At the same time I also served as head of the Violent Crimes Unit. I prosecuted a variety of complex cases such as Murder, Robbery, Burglary, Sexual Assault, DUI, Drugs, and Domestic Violence. In 2012, I was honored as the "Solicitor of the Year" by the Greenville County Sheriff's Office. I am a graduate of Leadership Greenville County in 2012 and a graduate of Leadership Greenville Class 42 (2016).
