Press Releases

Pope Flynn attorneys Margaret Pope and Margaret McGee have received listings in the 2012 Legal Elite of the Midlands from Columbia Business Monthly magazine in two legal categories. Now in its third year, the Legal Elite of the Midlands is a peer-nominated listing for 20 different practice areas from members of the South Carolina Bar Association who practice in the Midlands region. Margaret Pope, who practices in public finance, was one of five attorneys listed in the Banking and Finance category. Margaret McGee, concentrating in public finance tax law, was one of three attorneys listed in the Tax Law category.

“It’s wonderful to be recognized by my peers in the law,” says Pope. “Practicing in public finance has allowed me to be both exacting and creative. There aren’t many vocations that allow someone to use both of those traits, and that’s one reason why I love what I do.”

“When I see my name listed with two other great attorneys with tremendous experience and knowledge in the field, I’m humbled,” says McGee. “There’s so much to learn in public finance tax law — you can’t ever stop working at it.”

Pope is president and founding member of The Crescent Society, a group dedicated to “recognizing and inspiring leadership excellence in South Carolina women;” a member of the board of directors of the Governor’s School for the Arts Foundation and the board of directors of the Historic Columbia Foundation; a member of the board of directors and past president of the American College of Bond Counsel; and past chair of the South Carolina Commission on Women. She graduated with a degree in political science from Emory University, then went on to receive a JD from USC’s School of Law.

McGee is President of the Hollywood Rose Hill Neighborhood Association, a member of the South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia bars, as well as the National Association of Bond Lawyers, and a volunteer with the Pawmetto Lifeline. McGee graduated with a JD from USC’s School of Law and went on to receive a post-graduate law degree in taxation from New York University.

McGee and Pope are attorneys with Pope Flynn, which features eight public finance lawyers in South Carolina and North Carolina.

With offices in Columbia, SC, and Charlotte, NC, Pope Flynn represents government agencies, public utilities, cities and towns, counties, water and sewer districts, hospitals, school districts, state institutions and other public entities particularly in creating cost-effective and secure structures for financing important projects.
