Attorney F. Dean Rainey, Sr. founded the firm in 1948 and expanded to four attorneys by 1958. Almost two decades later, H. Mills Gallivan and Daniel B. White joined the firm with the highest starting salary in South Carolina, followed by W. Howard Boyd, Jr. joining in 1977. By 1984, the firm expanded to 17 attorneys and moved into the Coffee Street location in Greenville, SC. With great success, the firm continued to grow and by 1998 had 27 attorneys.
