About Atticus Family Law, S. C.

WHO WE ARE:

For family law clients who believe they deserve a fair outcome, Atticus Family Law, S. C. helps them make sure their outcome is not a hammock of misery but rather a springboard to a bright future. The design of AFL is that of a metaphorical law firm pizza – our clear vision & standards, well-chosen personnel, and quality clients are the crust, sauce, and cheese, respectfully. While pizzerias focus on toppings, AFL recognizes that without having proven crust, delicious sauce, and fresh cheese that any innovative law firm features, being the toppings, will not make the excellent pizza that leads to bright futures.

PLA will oversee an assistant practice manager; finance/sales/office admin; and a legal staff of 4 paralegals, three attorneys, and a 3rd-year law student. Operations are also supported by outside vendors for bookkeeping, telephone reception, HR consulting, tech support, payroll, and law firm development consulting.
