An attorney with great professional abilities, thorough, responsive and genuinely interested in resolving her client's problems (as she did in my case, after going through five other attorneys in four years). Attorney Amy Huff Harris is my hero!

I was married for 20 years and when my wife initially filed for divorce my goal was to find a lawyer who will work with me on my rights as a parent. I came across Amy's name and met with her. From the beginning I found Amy to be fair, very knowledgeable and most importantly wanting to get what was right for my children. My divorce proceedings were at times very acrimonious and throughout all the tensions Amy was level headed, never asking the other party for outlandish things and she very much had a solid understanding of the courts and the judges view. Amy was very honest and open with me and guided me through the whole process. I wanted equal custody of our children and since their were no circumstances that would prohibit me from having that I felt it was the only fair thing for me and the kids. Amy felt the same way and doggedly worked to get that. I was initially awarded full custody of the kids and that was because how Amy worked with me but it the end both parents did deserve to share equal custody. Everything she told me and how to act was with a purpose and that was how I was viewed by the court. Amy was tough and fair in court. In the end I got what I wanted, equal custody of our kids and the negotiated deal to keep the house. I cannot have done without Amy's expertise. I have recommended Amy to other people and I will say this to any parent who is starting to go thru the divorce process: before making any rash decision contact Amy. She will listen and properly advise you on your path. I was very lucky to have Amy as my attorney.

Amy Huff was hired to help in my divorce after assuring me she could handle the forensic accounting aspects of my case. I had high hopes when Amy promised she could help me through the trauma of my divorce. She spent several hours on the phone during our initial consultation comforting and reassuring me of how hard she would fight for my son and me. After sending in a $15,000 retainer my contact with Amy was phone conversations explaining how hard she was working for us and always ending the phone call with how much more money I was to send. $55,000 later, money I had to borrow from a friend, I realized that Amy had been more interested in her upcoming wedding than providing me with proper representation. The result was me asking the head of the firm for new council. My advice is to beware of this attorney who offers nothing but empty promises and leaves you destitute. My case was left by Amy Huff in such a mess that I ended up worse off financially then when we started.

Ms. Huff is a true professional in every way. She was reliable, knowledgeable and caring about my needs. She genuinely cared about my welfare and fought hard for a palatable solution to an otherwise unpleasant and highly volatile legal proceeding. Divorces are never pleasant, but Ms. Huff shielded me from the unpleasantries and kept me focused on the overall goal and objectives for an amicable divorce. As a result, my divorce was event and hassle free. I would recommend Ms. Huff to anyone going through a divorce. She will be a very good advocate for you and will fight for your rights to a fair and equitable dissolution of your marriage.

I asked Amy to take over my case from another lawyer with whom I was not satisfied. My previous attorney had let me down hard during the first court hearing, twisting my arm to accept terms of a bad agreement and giving me no encouragement that I might be able to obtain a better agreement. I had not won out on a single issue and I came away with an agreement that was unfair to me and did not take my son’s best interest into account.
Amy changed all that. She dug me out of the hole my prior attorney had put me in and got an agreement that is fair to me and more importantly to my son. From the moment of our first conversation she was positive and upbeat. She knew immediately that something was fundamentally wrong with the agreement my prior attorney had negotiated and she had a plan to fix it. The more I worked with Amy the more impressed I was with her dedication to her clients. She would often work on my case during weekends and late nights, sending me e-mails or telephone calls. Ultimately, I trusted her not to allow me or my son to be railroaded by the system. She did not let me down. I can’t thank her enough and I highly recommend her without any reservations.

Attorney Huff represented me on short notice after being served with a false complaint of contempt by my ex-husband (of 5 years) regarding the visitation situation he had with our minor son. I had less than one week to retain her and get everything in order. The situation was handled with great concern, respect and expeditiously by Amy and her staff!!! Not only that but my ex- husband was the one in contempt over several issues including delinquent payments on our marital home and the non payment of child support, harrassment of both myself and our child. Amy countered and made me and my entire family feel well represented and confident that he would not be allowed to do this to us any longer. As well as to make sure that he was made responsible for the monies he owed me per our divorce decree and the child support he owed our child for his well being. Amy cares personally for her client and their extended family. Shestays in touch with me, now six months later to see how I am doing and how my son is. We moved out of state and has represented me on a follow up matter and did so with the same care as if I were standing by her side. Amy is an outstanding knowledgeable attorney who knows what it takes to get the best result possible for her client. She is an asset to the profession and an asset to the type of law she handles wich is oftern very emotional, tumultuous and terrifying at times for those going through it and she is there to hold your hand and guide you with professionalism and sensitivity.

I needed an attorney with some backbone and extensive knowledge of family law while going thru my divorce. The emotions naturally run high and everyone on all sides are not often focused on being rational and making smart decisions. Amy helped keep me grounded emotionally, used her knowledge to help me make educated well thought out decisions concerning my family's future and in the end secured a healthy happier agreement for all parties involved. Amy was also a professional while having to navigate thru legal tactics, challenging personalities and strife after entering the conflict more than half way thru. I would recommend Amy for anyone who needs strong, knowledgeable representation when dealing with family matters.

Amy took over my case from a previous incompetent lawyer I had used before. Amy is extremely knowledgeable, very bright, good at strategy, efficient, very hard working and extremely kind. She is very conscientious and always returns your calls and answers any and all concerns you have. She is professional, thinks quickly on her feet, is good in court, writes very well and is extremely well versed in the law. She explains everything to you very clearly. She is very thorough and makes you feel comfortable and well taken care of during probably the worse and most unstable time of your life, during the nasty divorce process. My divorce was a nightmare and she gave me a lot of comfort knowing that my case would be handled properly and with diligent care. Amy really cares about her clients, and about doing a good job, so unlike the lawyer I had before her who just wanted my money. She is by far the best, most competent and caring lawyer I have ever had or known and I highly recommend her. She is someone who you can trust will do the best job for you that she can and handles things in a professional, efficient and effective way. Had I just used her instead of my previous lawyer, I could have saved a substantial amount of money, time and grief. She is very honest, direct and has a lot of integrity. I would definitely use her again and highly recommend her to anyone.

Amy Huff handled my case in a very professional way. She was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the law pertaining to support issues. She never failed to respond to my questions and include me in all decisions made in my case. While never crossing any client/lawyer boundaries, Amy always made me feel comfortable and I always felt she was compassionate and there for me. I feel that the excellent judgement I received by the court was due to Amy's hard work and perseverance. I highly recommend Amy Huff.
