Cameron Blazer, Esq.

A fighter for you.

I always knew I’d be a lawyer, but I am so glad that I spent some time after college and before law school working in other areas. I put the personal and professional development I gained in those experiences to fight for my clients every day. My legal arguments are stronger because I used to be a computer programmer and more creative because I worked as a chef.

Professional Experience

In 2007 Cameron entered private practice but soon after was drawn to public service and joined the Ninth Circuit Public Defender’s Office as an Assistant Public Defender.

Continuing to answer the call to public service, she became an Assistant Federal Public Defender in 2009. Over more than five years as a public defender, Cameron represented hundreds of her fellow Lowcountry residents in state and federal court, taking a personal, individualized approach for each client and each challenge.

In 2014 she entered private practice as an associate at the Savage Law Firm. In 2016, she formed the Blazer Law Firm, P.C.

Education & Background

Cameron graduated magna cum laude from the Charleston School of Law in 2007 and magna cum laude from the University of South Carolina Honors College in 1997. Prior to law school, Cameron was an academic advisor to students in the South Carolina Honors College.

After college, Cameron worked as a computer programmer, bringing utility systems up to date in anticipation of Y2K, designing financial data management software, and building first-generation e-commerce infrastructures. And along the way, she followed her passion for cooking and moonlit as a line cook at some of Los Angeles’ most famous restaurants, including Wolfgang Puck’s Spago.

Board Memberships & Fellowships

A lifelong arts patron, Cameron served for many years on the Board of Directors for PURE Theatre, and now periodically advises that organization as an emeritus board member.

She served as Vice President of the Charleston School of Law Alumni Association from 2013-2015, throughout the school’s most tumultuous years, acting as an advocate for students, faculty, alumni, and the community to ensure the pro bono mission of the school would survive and thrive.

She is currently chair of the Lowcountry Advisory Board for the Jefferson Awards, the country’s largest organization dedicated to activating and recognizing public service.

For her work to improve South Carolina and the lives of her fellow South Carolinians, she was named to the 2013 class of the Liberty Fellowship.

Cameron is a Fellow of the Aspen Institute and a Diversity Leadership Fellow of the Riley Institute for Diversity. She is also an occasional contributor to the Huffington Post.

Cameron’s office is located in her hometown of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, where she lives with her husband and son.
