Hank Young represents victims harmed by medical drugs, medical negligence, and corporate misconduct.

As an advocate for some of the most vulnerable in our society, Hank seeks justice for children and for mothers following their use of the anti-nausea medication Zofran during pregnancy, which may cause life-threatening birth defects, as well as for elderly clients who suffer abuse and neglect at nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Hank also represents clients diagnosed with melanoma after taking Revatio or Viagra, and is reviewing claims of kidney failure and ketoacidosis after taking Invokana and other SGLT2 inhibitors.

A Charleston native, Hank graduated from the Charleston School of Law, where he served as Editor in Chief of the Charleston Law Review and competed in numerous moot court competitions, including the 2015 National Tax Moot Court Competition, in which he was awarded Best Individual Advocate. He also was recognized with the CALI Award as the highest scoring student in Legal Writing I & II, Products Liability, Constitutional Law, Constitutional History, and Professional Responsibility.

A Motley Rice law clerk for two summers before joining the firm, Hank has clerked at both corporate defense and plaintiffs’ firms. Additionally, Hank volunteered at the Veteran’s Legal Clinic in Charleston during law school, providing low-income veterans with basic legal services, including finding housing, drafting wills, and resolving family law issues.
