NADN membership is by invitation only and limited to professional mediators and arbitrators who are well established as trusted neutrals among the legal community within their state of practice. All Academy members have been found to meet stringent practice criteria and are among the most in-demand neutrals in their respective states, as nominated by both peers and litigation firms.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for my mediation practice and included among such highly-regarded mediators,” said Gaffney.
Only 34 attorneys in South Carolina have been accepted in the Academy and Gaffney is the 4th female attorney to be included. Her partner, Regina Hollins Lewis, is also a member, having been inducted in 2019.

A litigation attorney, Gaffney also represents individuals and companies throughout the state of South Carolina in employment and tort matters.
Lewis, a founding partner based out of the firm’s Columbia office, is also a certified mediator and regularly mediates employment and tort matters across the state. In addition to her mediation practice, Lewis has over 33 years of civil litigation and appellate experience.
