Former Navy transplant that came to South Carolina in 1979. I went into the practice of law after graduating From South Carolina School of Law in 1991. I wanted to bring my experience and strong beliefs in Justice to the community. I opened my office in March of 1993 and have been located on the same block of Asheley Phosphate Road ever since. I pride myself in being hard working and practical as to the needs of my clients and the Courts. I feel it is my job to counsel and to guide my clients through a very complicated Court system.

Other lawyers said my divorce was too complicated.
Mr. Lizzi handled my divorce 2 years ago when other local lawyers said it was too difficult to deal with since my wealthy husband fled to Alaska. Without hesitation, Mr. Lizzi quickly and efficiently took over my divorce case and saw to it that I received a generous settlement, larger the I expected. I am forever grateful to him and recommend Mr. Lizzi to anyone going through a difficult divorce.

Extremely Pleased
I have used Mr Lizi a few times. From DUI, Misdemeanor possession charges, shoplifting and even helping to eliminate a couple of felony charges (PWID/Manufacturing Marijuana) as a young adult. I was going down the wrong path and if not for Mr. Lizzi and his knowledgeable staff keeping me from being convicted of some rather serious convictions, I'm not sure where I would be today. I highly recommend Mr. Christopher Lizzi and his staff for any of their offered services and would like to thank him and his staff for helping me to go down the path I travel today.

Thank you Mr. Lizzi
Mr. Lizzi assisted me in my case in SC for failure to stop for blue lights. Mr. Lizzi is also is reasonably affordable. After a long wait almost 2 years, the wait paid off he got my charge lowered to a wreckless driving charge. Much better than a felony or misdemeanor charge. I appreciate all the hard work and courtesy of Mr. Lizzi and his firm. Thank you all so much. Jose

Mr. Lizzi did a great job negotiating a settlement in my divorce. He is very knowledgeable on the law and thorough. It could have been a very different outcome without his determined attitude to help me. His paralegal did everything she could to help me also. I would definitely recommend this attorney.

Professional and understanding.
I went to Mr. Lizzi with my DUI case in February. As soon as I spoke with him I was put at ease; he told me what could happen, what he would fight to make happen, and displayed a large measure of confidence regarding my situation. As the months rolled on through this process he kept me up to date with information in a timely manner. His legal staff was extremely kind and helpful. Eventually Mr. Lizzi had my DUI reduced to a DUAC, saving me a lot of money and keeping my criminal record clear. Could not be happier with the outcome and the professionalism that Mr. Lizzi and his Law office has shown. Highly recommended.

While our son was in college, he was arrested for a DUI. Chris immediately went to work on gathering the facts and making contacts. Chris was able to make arrangements for our son to enter an alcohol assessment program on the college campus, and if completed successfully, it would provide him the opportunity to plead to a lesser charge. In the end, our son's case was resolved favorably without going to trial and he was able to plead to the lesser charge. I was impressed by Chris' willingness to act quickly and take action on our son's behalf. In dealing with Chris, his knowledge of the laws and inner workings of the judicial system in South Carolina are quite apparent. Just this week, a friend of mine called with a crisis situation regarding an accident involving her son in Myrtle Beach, and I was quick to recommend Chris. She called me immediately to thank me and was sure that, after speaking with Chris, she was in good hands.

Mr. Lizzi is a professional and competent attorney who fights for his client's best interest. I have referred him to friends for divorce matters and criminal matters. Each case was successful and they were very thankful for the referral. I have actually had the opportunity to witness Mr. Lizzi in Court and he was aggressive (for his client) and successful.

Excellent Attorney!
I would highly recommend Mr. Lizzi as an attorney. He knows the law backward and forward, will be honest with you, and is very good at what he does. His prices are more than fair and it will be hard to find another attorney that wants to fight him in court.

clear up warrant in berkly county. communication break down with paralegal. 3 years nothing resolve
Still waiting for matter to clear up. I have paid according to Mr. Lizzi fee. I feel matter is not taking serious and failure to uphold agreement. 2010 he was vey reliable and informative. Last 3 years nothing maybe staff not corresponding with him definitely not me. Promise to call me back but never do totally fail through this time. He is a great attorney just dropped the ball.
