Certified Family Court Mediator and Collaborative Family Attorney
Bruce M. Poore, Attorney at Law
Rock Hill, SC

I believe that the traditional legal approach to resolving family disputes can
produce totally unsatisfactory results for you and your family and can be especially
hurtful to your children.  I believe that the collaborative approach is a much better way.


This is your marriage. This is your family. These are your children. I believe
that you and the other party are better informed and better equipped than anyone else to deal with the issues that exist between you. As your attorney, I will be committed to helping you negotiate a settlement that is appropriate to and consistent with your unique situation.


I have lived my entire life here in York County. I graduated from the University of
South Carolina in 1974 with a degree in Philosophy. My legal career began when I was
admitted to the South Carolina Bar on November 9, 1977. My practice has been
primarily focused on family law issues for many years. I have been a Certified Family
Court Mediator since 2012 and I am trained as a Collaborative Family Attorney.


I am proud to be a part of SC Family Solutions.

Certified Family Court Mediator and Collaborative Family Attorney
Leigh B. Sellers, Attorney 
Touchstone Family Law
Locations in Charlotte, NC and Fort Mill, SC

I experienced divorce as a child and later watched as high school friends endured their parents’ divorces. As an adult, I have listened to my adult friends and some close family members as they went through separations and divorces. I understand how the process of separation and divorce can eat away at the lives of the participants. I also know that the decisions made by parents during their divorce have a tremendous effect on the children – decisions that can shape relationships with their parents for the rest of their lives. I entered the practice of law in 1990 and I have been a family law attorney since 1993, when I entered private practice in Columbia, South Carolina. I moved to Charlotte in 1995 and after passing the North Carolina Bar, I began my practice in North Carolina as well as continuing my practice in South Carolina. I am passionate about assisting people through family conflict in a manner that leaves them intact as a person. I am a trained mediator certified by the North Carolina Bar. I have been a member of the Charlotte Collaborative Practice Group since 2003. My priority is helping my clients determine the best method of resolving the specific issues that are relevant to their personal situation. Because court proceedings and hearings before a Judge are undesirable in most circumstances, I do recommend avoiding litigation whenever possible. The Collaborative Process allows true resolution. The end result is a legal product that meets the unique needs of an individual family. The process provides a private and dignified way to end a very personal and complicated relationship.
