I chose Rhett to be my divorce attorney because of his expertise, genuine attitude, practical approach, ethical history and sense of humor. Yes, the last statement was necessary in my situation because he took my case in February of 2012 and it is still going on today. My case is challenging so to have an attorney who can laugh with me instead of just sit there while I cry was very important to me. I also feel Rhett is persistent in a successful and fair resolution for his clients.
My official divorce happened in June 2014. Rhett is still involved with my case due to my ex not following the court ruled payment plan. The one thing I have learned about family court is if you think that you have an easy case and it will go fast – don’t think that at all! Family court is a slow and tedious process of many variables that play into why a case goes a certain way or takes forever. Be prepared to learn patience, I did. Rhett and his team are very helpful throughout this process.
I recommend Rhett Burney to anyone needing a divorce or corporate attorney.
Good luck navigating through Family Court! Let Rhett help you.

I was a NY resident looking for a lawyer to handle my divorce after I had moved to SC. At first Rhett and his team was very helpful and responsive but after he was paid he nearly dropped off the face of the earth. No case updates unless pressured. Emailed him for an update and I got a document that was sent to my ex wife on the divorce agreement. The document said that I had been married since 1995, that I am 52 years old and that together we had two kids....I am 26 I had been married since 2013 and we had no kids. Coincidentally I also suddenly got the court date. Dragging his feet on an easy uncontested divorce. I would not recommend him to anyone.

Rhett has handled our business needs for several years. He has seen us through the set-up of multiple ventures and through daily needs that arise for the small business entrepreneur. Rhett is quick to respond and very thorough. He makes the law easy for us non-lawyers to understand.
