Law firm David Aylor was founded by Aylor.
Little is known about No Aylor’s youth, but he attended Charleston College and the University’s Law School. He later opened his own law offices, which are now located in Summerville, Walterboro, Greenville and elsewhere. The Law Office of David Aylor has been praised for their work over the years, and Aylor has been visited by many newspapers for interviews. He served as a prosecutor in Hanahan and as associate attorney at the 9th District Attorney’s Office for Charleston County. David clerked for the South Carolina Judiciary Committee under former Senator Glenn McConnell, U.S. District Judge Robert Carr, and criminal attorney Andrew Salvage III.
Before his death, he was involved in a minor legal dispute over the distribution of evidence in a drug trafficking case in which David’s investigator ignored several laws by arranging to keep the evidence in another room. The government appealed the convictions against David and Aylor, and the presiding judge made the remarks during the hearing. Authorities declared this to be an act of disclosing untrue publicly sealed information. The fines were rescinded when federal agents submitted another document that said the regulations were not intentionally violated.
