About Me

Hi, I'm Cecil Staton, CFP®, CSLP®. I started Arch Financial Planning to make a difference in people’s lives. Most firms focus on investments or making a sale without understanding their client’s ‘why’. I set out to change that.

We help our clients pay down student loans, reduce taxes, invest smarter, and retire confidently on their terms. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, I am committed to the highest standards of excellence and professionalism in the industry.

After earning my bachelor’s degree in Financial Planning from the University of Georgia, I worked for several firms in Atlanta, GA. I now call Athens, GA home.

When not perfecting financial plans, you’ll find me visiting our favorite local brewery, sipping coffee with my wife and F1B golden doodle, and visiting family in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

About our Firm

Arch Financial Planning, LLC is a fee-only firm that guides high-earning white coats with student loans and families within 10 years of retirement to financial success.

The financial profession is notorious for not listening to our clients, selling unnecessary products, and talking down to people about investing. I set out to change that.

Arch Financial Planning strives to help you end the confusion around student loans, reduce taxes, and retire confidently.

We believe personal finance is often more personal than finance. We want to make you and your goals the focus of everything we do.

Most advisors are generalists that serve anybody with a portfolio. We focus on white coats with student loans and tax-efficient distribution plans for retirees.
