It’s Love Your Lawyer Day!

Every day lawyers are hired to defend those accused of crimes, represent those who cannot defend themselves, and work in every aspect of modern society, and at Bleecker Family Law, represent clients in all South Carolina Family Courts, the Court of Appeals, and the South Carolina Supreme Court whether it be a straightforward issue, high-income complex divorce case, difficult custody dispute, or need a mediator or arbitrator to help you resolve a family law dispute.

From helping build businesses to representing families through difficult cases, lawyers are here to keep society moving.

It is with this in mind that Love Your Lawyer Day was created in 2001. The inspiration came from attorney Nader Anise when ALPIA (American Lawyers Public Image Association) had started a campaign of “No Lawyer Bashing or Jokes for a Day.” And here we are!
