Our Team

Trish Yeatts Butcher

Attorney and Counselor at Law

Trish is an Athens native and mom to Max. Trish formed Arch Legacy Firm specifically to focus on the needs of young families, special needs trusts, & professionals and their families. She excels in guiding her clients through the often confusing maze of financial and legal decisions to create plans that ensure the well-being of their careers, businesses, and families.

Trish graduated from the University of Georgia followed by the Emory University School of Law in 2013. While studying at Emory, she interned with the Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) and later transitioned into the role of Legal Counsel. At MAG, Trish authored and helped pass several key pieces of legislation protecting the medical community. After MAG, Trish transitioned to private practice and assisted healthcare professionals with a wide variety of legal matters while working with Hamil Little PC.

After advanced training with the New Law Business Model, Trish became a certified Personal Family Lawyer and Family Business Lawyer® in order to step away from the antiquated billable hour and ensure that she can become the trusted advisor for you to look to for a lifetime of guidance, protection, and love for yourself, your family, your career, and your assets.

Trish is an avid bourbon drinker, University of Georgia fan, a wife, and proud mother of her son Max (and two furries).

Stephanie brings a wealth of experience to Arch Legacy and we are so fortunate to have her. The mother of two adorable boys, Caleb and Nolan, Stephanie has worked as a paralegal, insurance agent, and owned a very successful embroidery business. With more than 14 years of customer service experience, Stephanie places a high priority on understanding the needs of each client and their families.

Stephanie played softball for Young Harris before transferring to UGA and graduating with a degree in Political Science. After marrying her Clarke Central High School sweetheart, John, Stephanie became an insurance agent, specializing in life insurance. Following the birth of her two sons, Stephanie took a step back from insurance to focus on raising them to be incredible young men.

Besides her two sons, Stephanie is the mother of furbabies, her two orange tabbies, Sawyer and JJ. She enjoys spending her weekends at the lake and taking no prisoners on the tennis court. On fall Saturdays, she can always be found tailgating and between the hedges cheering on the dawgs! 

Stephanie is dedicated to helping Athens families protect their families and find peace of mind and she is excited to work with you!
