ABOUT TAMARA CURRY
New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community
Tamara Curry was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. Both of her parents were public school educators, who instilled in her the importance of serving the community and working alongside others to build a village.
Inspired by her parents’ example, she remains deeply committed to our Charleston-area village and serving the community that she loves. This commitment has been the guiding star of her service as an attorney for over 30 years, and as Associate Probate Judge in Charleston County for the last 22 years.
Tamara helped start the first Mental Health Court in South Carolina and had presided over both Adult and Juvenile Drug Courts as well as Veterans Court. She has been tireless in outreach, traveling Charleston County from McClellanville to Edisto, and from the Peninsular Charleston to Lincolnville, educating the public about the Probate Court and its impact on all families.
In 2017, Tamara was inducted as the president of the National College of Probate Judges. She was the first African American to lead the College.
Tamara is a servant-leader through her involvement as member of the Board of Trustees of Allen University, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., YWCA of Greater Charleston (Past Board Chair), Charleston (SC) Chapter of The Links (Past President), Center for Heirs Property Preservation (Past Board Chair), Mental Health for Heroes, Junior League of Charleston, and the Board of Architectural Review.
She is married to Rev. Eduardo K. Curry, Esq., of The Curry Law Firm. They have three children, Eduardo II, an educational non-profit professional, Morgan, an electrical engineer, and Xavier, a college student; a daughter-in-law, Jennifer, son-in-law, Jordan, and grandchildren Olivia, Cora Jane and Melody. Tamara is a lifelong member of Ebenezer AME Church in Downtown Charleston and serves alongside her husband in his appointed churches and through various outreach committees.
