Meet Jim Fayssoux

Before founding Fayssoux & Landis, P.A, Jim was a senior partner in Anderson, Fayssoux and Chasteen, P.A. for over 30 years. Initially, Jim’s practice concentrated on domestic and family law, personal injury, and criminal prosecutorial work through the City of Greer, South Carolina. While he has now been practicing for almost 52 years he is still passionate about the practice and the people around him.

Since mid-1980 his practice has focused almost exclusively on real estate law. He handles both residential and commercial transactions and real estate litigation. For 3 decades Chicago Title has recognized Jim as a leading title agent.

Previously, Jim was an active member of the United States Army and the U.S. Army Reserve from 1972 to 1982.
