H. Stanley Feldman, a longtime Charleston defense attorney, died Monday. He was 60.

Feldman was born in Charleston on Sept. 26, 1953, and grew up in the city before attending Tulane University and the University of South Carolina School of Law.

As a criminal defense attorney, Feldman was involved in a number of prominent local trials and often contributed comments to stories in The Post and Courier.

While the details of each trial varied, Feldman's career consistently revealed a deep devotion to his hometown and its residents.

He was also a well-known baseball fan, and the Charleston RiverDogs and the 9th Judicial Circuit dubbed last Thursday's game Stanley Feldman Day in his honor. Feldman had worked with the Charleston County Bar Association to hold an annual continuing legal education seminar at Riley Park.

Feldman is survived by his father, Leon Feldman; his son, Aaron Feldman; and one granddaughter.

A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the Brith Sholom Beth Israel Cemetary. Stuhr's Downtown Chapel is handling arrangements.
