Criminal Defense Attorney at Law
For nearly a decade David Aylor has been building a thriving law practice in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, establishing a dynamic and experienced presence in the region.

In addition to succeeding as a criminal defense attorney and civil litigator, David is the acting Prosecutor for the City of Hanahan, SC. Prior to this appointment, he served as Assistant Solicitor in the Ninth Circuit Solicitor’s Office for Charleston County. David’s participation in the government sector provides him with a comprehensive view of how the law works on both sides of the courtroom. Being exposed to this unique perspective better equips David to ensure that his clients are treated fairly, giving him an advantage in the courtroom.
David is a native of South Carolina, born and raised in Spartanburg. After graduating from The College of Charleston with a degree in Political Science, David earned a law degree from the University of South Carolina and clerked for the SC Senate Judiciary Committee under Sen. Glenn McConnell, as well as clerking for US Magistrate Judge Robert S. Carr (ret.) and criminal attorney Andrew J. Salvage, III here in Charleston.
Outside of the courtroom, you can catch David teaching criminal and civil law at The College of Charleston and Trident Technical College. He is also an attorney for the Police Benevolence Association and a member of the Fraternal Order of Police. When he’s not hard at work, David loves boating around the Charleston harbor, serving on the board of the Push Up and Up, a Push-up competition to support proven programs in dropout prevention. He also can be seen in the stands at a Riverdogs baseball game with his son Fletcher.
On top of the many criminal and civil pro bono cases David handles independently, he is also an acting member of the South Carolina Bar Pro Bono Program, a participant in the Attorney Assistance Program at The College of Charleston and MUSC (which provides free consultations, legal advice and discounted rates for students), and is an active part of the Hanahan Elementary Lunch Buddies Mentoring Program. David is also a supporter and donor to the Charleston YMCA, Veterans of Foreign Wars Association, the Native American Children’s Fund and the Miracle Hill Rescue Missions, which provides a safe haven, shelter and hunger relief to those in need.
