John B. Kehl
John was born in Greenville, South Carolina, and attended Christ Church Episcopal School. After high school, John attended the University of South Carolina, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology in 1994, and a Juris Doctor in 1999. John spent his first year after law school serving as law clerk to the Honorable C. Victor Pyle, Jr. After his clerkship ended, John spent the next twelve years at the firm of Love, Thornton, Arnold & Thomason, where he practiced in the areas of real estate, collection/foreclosure, corporate transactions, and contract/commercial litigation. In June 2012, John joined forces with his friend and fellow CCES alumna, Erin Culbertson, to form the firm of Kehl Culbertson, where he focuses his practice primarily in real estate and corporate matters. In his spare time, John enjoys spending time with his children, whitewater kayaking, cycling, hunting, and most outdoor activities.
Erin is a Greenville native and a lifelong resident of South Carolina. Erin attended and graduated from Christ Church Episcopal School, then went on to Furman University, where she obtained a B.A. in English and Latin. She graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2000, and returned to Greenville. Erin practiced with Cecil Nelson for the first several years of her career, then opened her own law firm in 2007. Erin’s practice has always been based in real estate, but over the years, she has developed a strong litigation practice as well. Erin is committed to civil service in her community, and has previously served on the City of Greenville Board of Zoning Appeals and the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority. She currently serves on the S.C. Bar Ethics Advisory Committee and is a member of the 13th Circuit Resolution of Fee Disputes Board. Outside the office, you will likely find Erin with her nose buried in a book or talking endlessly about how great her dogs are. (For the record, her dogs are objectively great.)
