Parham Smith and Archenhold Announces Merger with Spears and Wicker Law

Greenville, SC February 13, 2017

Parham Smith & Archenhold LLC, a personal injury and medical negligence firm, is expanding its presence in the State of South Carolina by merging with Spears and Wicker, PA, a law firm that shares the same focus in its litigation practice.

The new firm, Parham Smith & Archenhold LLC, retains its name while having offices statewide, including Greenville, Spartanburg and Charleston. The merger will result in the firm having six lawyers focused upon significant personal injury litigation including medical malpractice, products liability, nursing home negligence and similar types of cases. The lawyers include S. Blakely Smith, Managing Partner, Brooke Archenhold, Robert Jones, Ashlee Winkler, Grey Wicker and Michael Spears, who has agreed to become Of Counsel to the firm.

“I cannot tell you how excited we are about this merger,” said Smith. “This merger absolutely enhances our commitment to serving the citizens of South Carolina who have been injured.” This solidifies the firm’s ability to handle complex litigation. “Adding Mike Spears and Grey Wicker to the firm will be of benefit to everyone,” continued Smith.

The two firms have been in existence for decades and have developed reputations for success and ethics. “The synergy that exists between the two firms allows us to serve clients with exceptional resources and experience,” said Archenhold. “Our incredible support staff has made this an easy transition as we position ourselves in the coming years.”

“The enhancement of our ability to quickly respond to client inquiries is a direct result of our integration of substantial technological, administrative, and research-based abilities that now enable us to focus our trial-hardened team on the most serious cases throughout the length and breadth of South Carolina, “said Mike Spears.

Both firms have had considerable trial and appellate court success and have been recognized throughout the state for those successes.
