The Rising Star designation is awarded to just 2.5 percent of young attorneys nationwide. It recognizes Bass for excellence in practicing law and is based on peer nominations, third-party research and a final review by a panel of attorneys.
“It’s an honor to be selected as a Rising Star,” says Bass, who represents injured South Carolinians in the firm’s Spartanburg office. “Establishing client trust is critical as a young lawyer, and knowing that we are chosen based on recommendations by fellow lawyers can help the public feel comfortable during the attorney selection process.”
This is not the first time that Bass has been recognized for his legal talent. He has also been named as one of the “Top 40 Lawyers Under 40” by The National Trial Lawyers. The recognition is given to a select few attorneys from each state who demonstrate the qualities of leadership, reputation and influence expected of them in compliance with state and national bar standards.
Bass has also earned a superb (10.0) score by the online legal directory Avvo and has been recognized by the S.C. Young Lawyers Division for his commitment to the profession.
Bass is a graduate of the S.C. Bar’s Leadership Academy and a member of its House of Delegates. From 2015-2017, he served as the Seventh Circuit Representative of the Young Lawyers Division.
A 2008 graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law, Bass represents clients in a wide variety of claims, including:
- Workers’ compensation
- Personal injury
- Car accidents
- Tractor-trailer accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Wrongful death
His notable wins include:
- $506,168.48 — motorcycle accident
- $302,000 — car accident
- $300,000 — car accident
- $263,000 — motorcycle accident
- $226,604.88 — workers’ compensation
- $190,000 — workers’ compensation
In 2019, Bass also became a certified mediator. Mediation is a process of alternative dispute resolution that aims to help parties end disputes without an extended legal battle.
“My goal is to help individuals achieve outcomes that meet their needs,” says Bass. “Whether that comes from fighting against insurance companies for a fair settlement or through a jury trial for my own clients — or acting as an independent mediator for someone else’s — that mission always remains the same.”
