The BEST!
Mr. Chambers and his entire staff were the most helpful, organized and calming people during our recent unfortunate issue. They made the process much easier to handle. Couldn't say enough good things about Trent and Shelly at Chambers Law. If you need assistance with anything give them a call.

On top of things
I got Attorney Chambers to take over my case for minor in possession of alcohol. His staff is very on top of things. Especially Ms. Shelly she definitely saved my ass that’s for sure. (Excuse my French). Definitely would recommend them in the Myrtle Beach area.

I'm from out of state and didn't know who to turn to!!!
I'm From Massachusetts. While riding my motorcycle I hit a speed bump that surprised me. Next thing I know a police officer pulls me over and gives me a field sobriety test then wants me to take a breathalyzer. I denied it just in case. He ended up taking me up to north myrtle and I was locked up for the night. The next day they wouldn't let me post bail because there was another charge coming. My prescription drugs where in a pill case and not in there original container. So nailed me with a narcotic charge!!! I spent two more days in the big boy jail. It sucked!!! It ruined my whole vacation. It cost me $2500.00 to get out three days later. Thank god my friend knew some people that knew the best attorney in town. His name is Trent Chamber!!! He had my DUI reduced and my drug charges expunged. He's an awesome attorney that I highly recommend!!! He has a paralegal named Angela Reid who is a sweetheart . She helped me with every question and need I had. Thank you so much for being there for me!!! P.S. Never had to show up down there for court. Thank god for Trent!

Great lawyer
Trent did a fine job of being very transparent about what was ahead. All the while being patient answering the million questions we had and settling any fears we brought to the office.

Chambers Law Firm - Professionalism and Compassion
When I called the Chambers Law Firm, I was facing a legal situation that appeared untenable. I felt alone on an island – that is until paralegal Lynn Hayes picked up the phone. I will never forget her kindness and compassion. She convinced me that I was not alone – and set up a consultation with Trent Chambers. From my consultation and throughout the legal process, Chambers proved to be the consummate professional and staunch ally I desperately needed – ultimately securing an outcome far better than I could have imagined.

Blessing
Mr. Chambers was there for me from start to finish. Obviously any situation you find youself needing a lawyer is stressful, I was clueless. He explained everything to me, what we needed to do, what was being done, and the possible outcomes. It was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders during this time. He represented me well and the conclusion was the best I could recieve in my situation. I cant thank Mr. Chambers enough for his execution in my case and being there for me. I would recommend his services to any of my friends or family and that means a lot.

Competent and Efficient Representation for Child Custody Battle
Trent handled my child custody situation. He and his staff were able to help me get a favorable agreement without having to go to court. He was receptive to my suggestions and changes, and was able to negotiate the points that my ex and I disagreed about, which resulted in an agreement that was tailored to, and the best for my situation. It was nice to have someone that I could trust to help me through a difficult time. If you are in need of a competent and efficient lawyer - I highly recommend Trent's services.

great dui lawyer
I would highly recommend Trent Chambers for any dui case as well as any traffic related cases. He has helped me on multiple occasions from dui to simple traffic violations and was a success on every occasion. He is very well connected and knowledgeable when it comes to dui cases and has kept my record clean on two occasions. One of which was due to a road block which was changed to a reduced fine leaving you the option of defensive driving classes if you want. The other was a normal traffic stop which ended up dropped and expunged completely. If another situation came up that required a lawyer I would have Trent represent me any day of the week and am one hundred percent sure I would use him again if necessary.

Excellent DUI Lawyer!
Trent helped me with a DUI i received at the end of the summer. He immediately dispelled my fear and nervousness about my future and the outcome of the case. I had a temp license back with in 10 days, then my regular license with in 4 months. Throughout the entire process Trent was knowledgeable, professional, and created a warm and hospitable atmosphere. I would recommend his services to anyone in a similar situation.

My review
I had an issue arise regarding my ex-husband, who I have been divorced from for almost 7 years. While Mr. Chambers did not handle my divorce, he willingly took on my case and all the information relating to it. He was very knowledgeable, honest about possible outcomes, and made this process as easy on me as he could. As it turns out, the case was not able to be settled and had to go to court. I was a bit nervous about getting on the stand, but Mr. Chambers alleviated my fears, and gave me confidence. I very much appreciate the service he rendered, and would use him again in a heartbeat!

All round great and knowledgeable lawyer.
I have used Trent's legal services for everything from traffic violations to civil issues, he is always responsive and his legal aid (Lynn) is great as well. If you are looking for an honest and reliable Lawyer, who also happens to be pretty damn good at what he does then give Trent a call, he will not disappoint you.

Great Attorney!
I recently retained Mr. Chambers for a DUI case. He was very knowledgeable of the South Carolina laws regarding DUI's. A DUI case can be embarrassing but Mr. Chambers was very professional. Everyone at his firm was courteous throughout the process. I was extremely satisfied with the final outcome of my case (dropped to wreckless op) and would recommend Mr. Chambers to anyone who is looking for a great attorney.
