Unpublished Opinion No. 2006-UP-254
Submitted May 1, 2006 – Filed May 19, 2006
PER CURIAM: Appellant, Horace Reynolds, Jr., appeals from an order of the family court finding a non-lawyer prepared the legal documents in this matter, thus constituting the illegal practice of law. Reynolds bases his appeal on the family court judge’s dismissal of his action. In our review, it appears the order continues this matter rather than dismisses it, which is consistent with the trial court’s oral ruling. “It is well settled that an order granting a continuance is an interlocutory order not involving the merits and is, thus, not directly appealable.” Walker v. Springs Indus., Inc., 298 S.C. 249, 251, 379 S.E.2d 729, 730 (Ct. App. 1989);

HUFF, STILWELL, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.
We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
