Bishopville, SC – The Jennings Law Firm is pleased to announce the addition of Jonathan Blackwell.

A native of Bishopville, and graduate of Lee Academy, Blackwell served eight years in the United States Air Force and completed two combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan prior to attending law school.
