Amy has displayed knowledge,caring,compassion and understanding for everything and everyone that is involved in these unfortunate circumstances. She understands what you want but more important what your going to need in the future especially if there's children involved. I do whole heartedly believe that me and my children have gotten the best possible outcome in this matter and I do attribute that to Amy's diligence,understanding and patience I have no regrets and would highly recommend her
Amy was recommended to me by a close friend. I am a client of hers, not only is she a great lawyer but also an amazing person. Very understanding, patient, and really, really good at what she does !!!
Amy is a great person and lawyer. She is very Knowledgeable in many areas. She is a down to earth person and very easy to work with and talk to. She is also the kind of person to give it to you straight.
Amy was recommended by a friend of mine, who also handles family law himself. I was hesitant to switch lawyers in the middle of divorce; however, the previous lawyer made a few mistakes, was sometimes slow to respond and I felt his law firm was extremely inefficient and unorganized. These are the types of things that can cause your lawyer fees to add up and; of course, with nothing in return.
After the first 30 minutes with Amy in my initial consultation I felt a relief that I knew she would protect my interest in a high conflict divorce that has been going on for two years and still pending. She is extremely organized, efficient, intelligent and competent. She had full control of my situation and case history in a very short timeframe. While anyone going through a divorce will most likely complain that their lawyer is wasting their money on letter writing campaigns, motions, phone calls, appeals, etc.; it should be noted that this is a problem with the legal system and process and not with the lawyers themselves. While there are many lawyers who are more than happing billing clients for useless letter writing campaigns, I can assure you that Amy is all about NOT wasting your money and ALL about protecting your interests as it pertains to divorce. She does what is necessary to protect your rights specifically as it pertains to custody and financial matters related to your divorce. Sometimes that means letters need to be written and motions need to be file to protect the record and deal with important divorce related matters. She is with you and will be with you every step of the way. She will not sugar coat anything and tell you the facts, but at the end of the day she will have your back. I appreciate her honestly, bluntness and to the point attitude.
There is no doubt that if you are going through a divorce and/or need a family lawyer, you want to use Amy to protect your rights. You will be able to sleep at night knowing she will protect your rights and ensure that the final results are fair and reasonable. Nobody gets everything they want in a divorce agreement, but nobody wants to be taken advantage of. Amy will be there to protect you in the most efficient manner. She will protect you on what matters most and make you budge in areas where it really doesn't matter at the end of the day. She knows and understands the legal system idiosyncrasies inside and out. This is important to know, as she will be two, three steps ahead of her adversary.
I had hired Amy through word of mouth from a really good friend . The problem is amy pawned the divorce off to her partner john that was not even in the picture when i hired amy. So u have to make sure u know who u are hiring with this firm. Also there bills are outrageous. 27 thousand in 8 months on letters. My ex and i did not own a house and we did not have a lot of money . There was nothing to be fighting over that it should not have been over ten times. Amy stopped answering calls and lost her voice everytime i spoke to the secretary to speak with her. I am still not divorced and in the process now of getting another attorney. What a nightmare. Please shop around and dont make the same mistake i did in these horrible times. And if u do decide to hire amys firm make sure u have tons of money. Also john blamed me for not budging during the ESP to settle the divorce when john (partner) had written the settlement proposal himself and said it was more then reasonable on my part. So that makes it my fault ? Please be carefull
I first came across Amy during my divorce in 2006 at which time I was using a different lawyer. While sitting in the same courtroom, I had a chance to witness Amy in action. I did not know who she was, but was totally impressed how compelling she was presenting her case. She possessed a clarity, preparedness and passion that the other lawyers lacked. It was at that time I started having regrets about my own lawyer. A few years later, a friend recommended a law firm for some post-judgement matters. When I came in for my consultation I was pleasantly surprised to find it was with Amy. I have been with her ever since and am truly grateful for everything she has done for my children and me.
Amy has represented me for the divorce and is representing me for post divorce issues.
During the divorce she was challenged by a lawyer who was using every dirty trick in the book, Amy kept it civil and to the issues at hand.
After the divorce I have had a number of issues with the ex and Amy has done an excellent job representing me. Amy has handled post divorce child support, custody (transfer of custody to me) and paring time issues. If there is something that is important to me I let her know and it is addressed.
To put it simple Amy keeps me informed, is accurate with her advice, I trust her to represent me in the court room and negotiate when I am not there.
It was a stroke of luck when I found Amy. We immediately connected and she took charge. While going through a divorce, one does not always think clearly and she recognized that I needed emotional support along with the professional. I never felt unclear or confussed about the steps taken with the court system or my divorce. Amy was always in communication with me and answered questions to the best of her knowledge. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is needing an attorney. She truly is wonderful.
Excellent Attorney, ours was a complicated case and she was very knowledgeable, never lost contact with us and seemed to be one step ahead of the other attorney. We are thankful for her services.
