Attorney McGarry not only helped me with a very difficult and time sensitive criminal case but also was always there for me speaking as one would a friend, not just a lawyer. Her office was easy to find, clean and her paralegal staff was really nice and helpful. Amy is competent, compassionate, caring and extremely effective in her practice. She answered all of my questions, always called me back or took my call right away, showed up to court on time and got me the best possible outcome for my case. Only a fool represents themselves in the eyes of the law and only a fool would not first hire Amy! Oh and she also has free half hour consultations which was very helpful! Thank you again and would DEFIANTLY refer her to anyone looking for an attorney.

I have chosen Amy as my attorney for multiple cases involving different issues and areas of the law. I believe that Amy truly cares about her clients and does her best to look out for them. She is also the type of attorney who will tell you what the judge is likely to do, even if you don't want to hear it. Amy doesn't just have knowledge of the law. She is also knowledgeable about the people who are interpreting the law.

Ms. McGarry did a great job on my criminal case. I got accused by an ex of assault and Ms. McGarry worked hard and got it completely dismissed for me. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a great defense!

Amy is very smart but is unable to negotiate before the hearing or argue effectively what she knows to be true, She is not very responsive and when asked to file a motion you will need to remind her and will be charged for every reminder. Also, she will indicate she has filed a motion when she has not. I would not recoomend her. She is a nice person but not very organized or able to argue your case.

Amy Morrissette McGarry is no longer partners with Pamela Holmes. If you want to reach Attorney Amy Morrissette McGarry, you can find her at www.McgarryLawOffices.com in Kennebunk. I'm glad I found where she went cause she's wonderful!

Amy Mcgarry was incompetent in not presenting my petition correctly. She never bothered to look up the (2) criteria needed for my particular petiton/case to be heard. The case was dismissed without being heard and I lost visitation. She "padded" the bill with bogus charges and even charged me for the 15min when I went to her opffice to fire her! She never returned phone calls promptly. I had to go to the court house to pick up a copy of the courts decision myself because she did not call me with the outcome that came in 21 days before I knew of it.
