William Timmons is an attorney and entrepreneur living in Greenville. He is State Senator for District 06 in South Carolina.
In four years with the 13th Circuit Solicitor’s office, he prosecuted crimes including murder, white-collar crime and domestic violence. Concerned that domestic violence victims were not being well-served by the court’s processes, he helped create a centralized DV court for domestic violence cases in Greenville County. Because of this work, he was appointed to the Governor Nikki Haley’s Domestic Violence Task Force.
Timmons owns multiple small businesses: Swamp Rabbit CrossFit, Timmons & Company, LLC, and Soul Yoga. He also helped his good friend, Allen Stephenson, in the early stages of Southern Tide.
A native of Greenville, Timmons attended George Washington University, where he earned a degree in International Affairs and Political Science, and the University of South Carolina, completing his law degree and at the same time, earning a Masters in International Studies.
A lifelong and active member of Greenville’s Christ Church, Timmons also serves his community as a board member for Pendleton Place for Children and Families, the American Red Cross, the Upstate Heart Ball, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Upstate.
In 2016 William helped open Soul Yoga, a hot power yoga studio on the Swamp Rabbit trail (next to Swamp Rabbit CrossFit.)
