Hidden among a handful of family photos on a corner table in Andy Savage’s office sits a small, wood picture frame. In it rests a copy of Savage’s 1972 New York City cabbie license.
“It’s the only diploma I have in my office,” said Savage. “You won’t see a high school diploma, a college diploma, law school diploma, bar, anything.”
The New York cabbie title is but a dot on Savage’s resume, a little-known fact, but a prevailing explanation as to why and how Savage became Charleston’s most-recognized and successful defense attorney.
