Founded in 1973, the law firm established by Roberts Vaux and now known as Vaux Marscher Berglind P.A. was built with a very important principle as its cornerstone: Everyone should have access to competent legal representation. 

“Our clients come from a variety of backgrounds and seek experienced and competent legal services in a broad range of areas,” said Mark Berglind. “As a firm, we take every necessary step to obtain the best possible results for our clients. Drawing on more than 150 years of combined experience, our lawyers are dedicated to patiently working through a wide range of cases with varying levels of complexity.”

Equally as important, the firm is deeply rooted in the Lowcountry. Founder and partner emeritus Roberts Vaux was born and raised in the Lowcountry and notably served as assistant director for the first Heritage Golf Classic in 1969. After opening a Hilton Head Island law office in 1973, he opened a Bluffton office in 1984. The firm was renamed Vaux & Marscher in 1992. The firm’s Sun City office opened in 1996.

The firm now offers its services out of two offices, one in Okatie at 16 William Pope Drive, and one in Bluffton at 1251 May River Road.

William F. Marscher III, a Lowcountry native, concentrates in real estate law. Berglind was raised in upstate South Carolina. He joined the firm in 2008, and his practice is devoted to personal injury, worker’s compensation, and civil litigation. 

Vaux’s son, Roberts Vaux Jr., known as Tabor, was born and raised in Bluffton. His practice is devoted to personal injury. Stephen Meyer joined the firm in 2015, concentrating his practice primarily on family and matrimonial law, and children’s advocacy. He routinely serves as a Family Court mediator. Antonia Lucia was admitted to the South Carolina Bar in 2008. Her practice at the firm includes estate planning and probate litigation. 

Over the years, the firm has increased in size, staff, and scope to provide legal services to thousands of individuals and businesses in Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, Colleton, and Allendale counties and surrounding areas. Strategic growth remains a key component of the firm’s success.

Recently, the firm hired two new attorneys, Victoria Tuten and Carlos Cordero, to serve its growing and diverse client base. 

Tuten, a Lowcountry native raised in Ridgeland, joined the firm as an associate in 2022. She attended the University of South Carolina, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration from the Darla Moore School of Business. 

Tuten earned her Juris Doctor from the Charleston School of Law. Following law school, she served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Jennifer B. McCoy. After completing her clerkship, Tuten began working at Vaux Marscher Berglind. She primarily practices personal injury law, where she uses her past legal experiences to zealously advocate for the firm’s clients.

Cordero was born in San Cristobal, Venezuela, and moved to Hampton County when he was 4 years old.  

Following his graduation from law school, Cordero clerked for the Honorable Robert J. Bonds in the 14th Judicial Circuit. He became familiar with the inner workings of the court system and enjoyed meeting the staff in various county courthouses closest to Bluffton. After completing his clerkship in the fall of 2023, Cordero came to Vaux Marscher Berglind as an associate attorney.  

Cordero concentrates his practice on general civil litigation, criminal law, probate, business litigation, and real estate. A native Spanish speaker, he enjoys assisting the firm’s Spanish-speaking clients with various issues. 

Vaux Marscher Berglind institutes a collaborative team-based approach to understanding and resolving its clients’ needs. Collectively, the firm works to offer insightful legal counsel and diligent representation to every client. In addition to eight attorneys, the firm has a long-tenured support staff, thus enabling the firm to offer outstanding client service.  

“We pride ourselves on assisting our clients with a full spectrum of legal services,” Berglind said. “Our firm has strong practices in the areas of personal injury, family law, worker’s compensation, real estate closings, estate planning and probate litigation, and general civil litigation. It is our pleasure to assist our clients with all their legal needs.”  

The firm is honored to have many long-standing client and community relationships.

Whether you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, buying your first home, navigating a family challenge, or need a will, you can count on the experienced lawyers at Vaux Marscher Berglind to confidently and efficiently handle your needs and accomplish your goals.
