Chris Archer, of the Archer Law Firm, was my divorce attorney. He was personable, honest and delivered on every... promise. I went to him in September 2019; I was awarded and started receiving spousal and child support in October 2019. He got me more than what I asked for! Chris represented me in Lexington County, SC. He did an excellent job. He responded promptly to every call or email, and always kept me in the loop. Chris made what was a tough time for me more tolerable. Other larger firms seldom call back, but this was not the case with the Archer Law Firm. If you are looking for a family law attorney, I highly recommend this firm for their professionalism, quick turnaround and results that exceed expectation. It will help if you have all of your documents/proof and an idea of what you hope to gain at your initial consultation. However, Chris will guide you through the entire process if you do not. As of December 2020, I am happily divorced and I got to keep my house! Chris made this happen as seamless as possible.Again, I highly recommend the Archer Law Firm, LLCread more
