About MeHi, 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 FirmArch 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.

Financial Advisor Review
I am an attorney and friend of Cecil Staton. I believe that he is an excellent financial advisor. He has always been very disciplined and good at preparing for the future financially.
My investments are diversified, but low risk for my age. Happy with his suggestions and advice.
My husband and I have been very pleased with the services Cecil has provided, as he has taken our personal goals and desires into account when helping us plan financially for the future of our growing family. Cecil has advised me on the best plan of action to implement to ensure my student loans are paid off in a timely manner and how to save appropriately in order to retire at the age I want to.
Everything very professional and satisfactory. I highly recommend. Great to work with.
I’m very appreciate for the worth that he does to prepare for meetings and post meetings with homework to answer any and all questions. Cecil has tailored his conversation to fit my needs. He has shown this through exploring different retirement tools but also learning my business and my cash flow situation. By forecasting the future and wanting to know my personal and business goals.
Cecil is great and will help anyone achieve their goals
Excellent experience from start to finish. Professional and efficient.
Specialized and efficient management of student loans. Navigated Public Student Loan Forgiveness process.
The level of service we have experience has exceeded our expectations.
He has always considered our current employment status and business ownership in making recommendations about the direction of our investment strategy.
This is a family member of the advisor.
Solid advice to help you achieve your goals and objectives.
Cecil has taken the time to learn about our portfolio, ask what our goals and objectives are, then provide honest, solid feedback with recommendations to review that included a pathway forward which takes into account our priorities. He offers an excellent explanation and is available to answer your questions anytime.

Tips for Writing a Helpful Review
Be descriptive. Instead of just saying what you like or dislike, share why. What have you enjoyed most or least about your experience with the provider? Have they helped you overcome a difficult financial challenge or strengthened your knowledge about particular money matters? The more details, the better!
Be honest. Your rating and review should reflect your actual experience.
Stay relevant. Help ensure your review is useful to others by avoiding off-topic discussions or personal opinions not relevant to your direct experience.
Be objective. Try to highlight both positives and negatives in your review, even if your experience skews heavily in one direction.
Make your review easy to read. Reviews should be readable for others. Use proper grammar, avoid excessive capitalization or punctuation, and be sure to check your spelling.
Be yourself. Don’t post as, or pretend to be, someone else, and do not say you’re associated with a person or organization with which you are not.
Be nice. Don’t write abusive, hateful, threatening, or harrassing content. Avoid personal threats, hate speech, obscentities, or inflammatory language.
Respect the privacy of others. Don’t post information that can be used to identity another individual or compromise their privacy.
