Amy is absolutely amazing! I WOULD ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND HER!!!! She represented me in a child custody case. She was tactfully aggressive, in all of the right ways. She did not always give me the answer I wanted to hear, but what was lawful and within my rights. She was quick to respond to my emails and texts. She was thorough and eloquent. Her retainer was more than reasonable and she never hesitated to send me the invoice showing where we were at.

Amy had my uncontested divorce final in 20 days from our initial meeting. She was very responsive and helpful!

Amy is not the typical lawyer where you feel like you're a number. Her correspondence with me was mostly via email, (which I wasn't socked for $50 a pop). I spoke with 5 attorneys in the Tampa area and I felt the most comfortable with Amy's knowledge and reasoning skills. Divorce is an ugly time, so you don't need the added pressure of not trusting your attorney. I was kept up to date as much as possible, advised about what to expect next and presented with strategies going forward. Of course you never feel like you've won, but I think my resolution was reasonable and the outcome was actually better than I was prepared for. If you want to deal with your attorney directly, with no paralegals adding additional expenses, (don't believe that they save you money, they still have to go to the attorney and consult with them). I was treated well and my outcome was good and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. Good luck!

I consulted with more lawyers than I care to mention and Amy is by far the best. She's a "people person", non-judgemental and honest. And to top it off....she charges less than most!!!! You can't go wrong if you choose her.

I was very comfortable and confident with Amy. She helped me through a difficult time and I am not sure I would have made it with out. Thank you

To say we (my girlfriend and I) had a 'wonderful experience' during one of the most stressful times of our lives sounds very contradictory but it was true. Amy was very fair in her billing, knowledgeable about all facets of my child support modification process and a true 'bull dog' as far as strategy and negotiation. She also gave us clear possible consequences to our decisions before we made a move which made us extremely comfortable throughout the whole process. She gave advice on issues large and small and was there whenever I had a question or concern. During my original divorce with my ex I had another lawyer that charged me three times as much and never gave me clear information about my case and I ended up overpaying child support and having a horrible visitation schedule with my children. He wrote very few motions and extended my case so long that I ran out of money and ended up with a horrible mediation agreement that I had been forced to live with for 5 years until I hired Amy. Amy was certainly prepared to go to court for us but worked diligently to avoid it and save us money and in the end we walked away (FINALLY) with a mediation agreement we were proud of. We finally got what we wanted without going to court which we NEVER expected! With my ex as difficult as anyone can ever imagine, we certainly had not set our expectations for a good outcome high but were amazed to see Amy pull it off. We literally ended up with even MORE than we had hoped in a best case scenario. My support ended up $150 mth less than we expected, I got the time I wanted for my kids and all of the horrible parts of my last mediation agreement were taken out. Amy is such a smooth talker, my ex is just now starting to realize the effects of the agreement she signed and its been great to have the ability to ignore her insanity due to my amazing mediation agreement. Amy starts with her game face in the parking lot and its all strategy from there. I was able to just sit back and watch knowing I was in good hands. She had control of the situation from the very beginning all the way through to the signing of my new favorite document. I would (and have already) strongly recommend Amy to anyone in need of a focused, driven, fair but strong negotiator. Amy has assured me that my new mediation agreement should see me through until my kids are 18 (11 years from now!) but if I ever need another lawyer she will be the one I will call.

I put a lot of thought and research into my decision to hire Amy Warenyk as the attorney to guide and represent me in the dissolution of my 11-year marriage. I could not be more pleased in the service that I received from Ms. Warenyk. Although I’m certain that my particular case was not unique, the circumstances of my failed marriage and drawn out separation always felt as if I were in uncharted territory with problems that were insurmountable. Ms. Warenyk never allowed problems to get too big. She gave every situation immediate personal attention and thoughtful deliberation, and always provided rock solid advice. She allowed me to call the shots throughout the process, but fully informed me of my options and her opinion on every matter. In formal meetings she was prompt, prepared and professional. Her demeanor in her arena was ultra confident, yet respectful. And on a personal note, Ms. Warenyk was very encouraging to me. On occasions she would send me a “hang in there” or a “you doing okay?” note out of the blue or after a particularly stressful event in the proceedings. These things weren’t necessary, but it always felt good to know that I hired someone whose skill set included heart. And finally, the services that I received far outweighed what I wrote on a check. If you find yourself facing the unfortunate end of a marriage and you live near Tampa, it would really be worth your while to visit the office of Denoncourt & Warenyk, P.A. and get a personal consultation from Amy Warenyk.

Amy was very knowledgeable about the process and answered any questions I had quickly. The process was seamless. I would not hesitate to hire her again in the future should the need arise.

I hired Amy to represent me for my divorce. She did an amazing job, always kept me informed of any updates, responded quickly to my calls and emails, always on time on deadlines and/or court hearings. She is professional in every aspect, and I am glad that I found her on Avvo. Her retainer cost is very reasonable compared to other attorneys in town. She was the first attorney I met when searching for a divorce attorney, and after meeting her I knew I had to have her represent me. When hiring an attorney from a large firm your case can be passed from attorney to attorney, but when you hire Amy Warenyk she will be the only one representing your case. This avoids having to repeat your needs and issues to different attorneys . Amy will give you the best legal advice and at the same time get your approval for everything she says or does. Without a doubt I recommend hiring Amy Warenyk for legal representation.

Amy is amazing, she went above and beyond to help me understand the process I was going through, never complained about my many e-mails and questions and was always knowledgeable about anything I had to ask!!

I could write a whole book about how happy and satisfied I am with Amy Warenyk. She is very thorough, dedicated, knowledgeable and just flat out nice! she answered all of my questions (and believe me I had many) within reasonable time. I believe she went above and beyond the call of duty and we came back with very satisfying results all thanks to Amy who consistently made sure she was available to be the facilitator to the issues instead of causing them, as some attorneys might do in order to get more money. The best thing I can say about Amy is this, "I wish I would have hired your lawyer instead of mine" those were the word of my ex-husband. That is a huge compliment. Plus her fees are beyond fair!! I completely and highly recommend Amy Warenyk. If you are shopping around for an attorney and are not really sure who you should hire, you should hire Amy, if you need someone who treats you like a person, a human being with feelings then Amy is the one for you.

This was my first experience with a lawyer ever, and I have to say that I am more than completely satisfied with the work that she did for me. Amy always kept me up to date on every detail of my case, and really provided me with great advice considering different aspects of my case. She always maintained a high level of professionalism and curtesy. Any time she received information from the opposing counsel, she had it to me almost immediately with her recommendations and next action steps.
Posted by Kim, a Divorce client, Flag
Highly recommend Amy. She is very professional, caring person who takes interest in your case. She made me feel at ease handling my divorce case. Promptly returns e-mails and phone calls.

My firm worked with Amy on a very difficult family law case last year. Amy fought hard for her client, but always maintained the utmost professionalism.
Posted by Dan, a Divorce client, Flag
Treated me as an individual instead of just a paycheck. Very supportive when I was feeling down. Personable, would consider her a friend. Very organized and thorough. Knows her stuff. Fought fiercely at mediation. I have recommended her once before and would do so without hesitation. She kicks butt!

Amy handled a DUI for me last year. She was very efficient and always kept me up to date with what was going on. Any time I had a question, Amy quickly responded to my questions in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend Amy for any legal needs you may have. She genuinely cares about her clients.

I had the pleasure of having Amy represent me in child support adjustment. She upfront informed of everything to expect. And as things progressed everything she informed me of was on the money. Even down to the littlest detail. She was able to get a contempt of court dismissed and have everything settled in a mediation hearing. In which she was great at getting things done and was to the point with apposing counsel. Her representation was so good that she is now representing my wife with her legal issue. I highly recommend her and if I should need legal representation in the future she is my very first call.

Ms Warenyk helped me complete custody paperwork concerning my daughter. I had no idea what to expect or what to ask for in my paternity paperwork but Ms Warenyk was there to help me each step of the way. She responded promptly, was always courteous, upbeat and reassuring. The thing I liked most about Ms Warenyk was that she did not pressure me but made sure to tell me all options and all possible consequences or outcomes. She always took the time to thoroughly answer my questions. I really felt that I had a knowlegable, strong and trustworthly lawyer on my side. I would definately recommend her to any of my friends and family and in fact have done that already!

i would ABSOLUTELY recommend Amy, she is the BEST by far. She is very attentive, fast acting and direct! There really are no words for how great of an attorney she is! I have heard alot of horror stories about lawyers and she breaks the mold! Thank YOU AMY! I wish you much success.

I used Mrs. Warenyk to represent me during my divorce. I found her to be very responsive and willing to answer questions to assist me. All in all, the divorce only took about two months. You will not be disappointed in her ability to meet your needs.
Posted by Thomas, a Divorce client, Flag
Amy is one of the most trustworthy and responsive lawyer I have ever known. She goes out of her way to answer questions and will not charge you for every minute she helps you. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a good, reliable, and trustworthy attorney who will not rip you off like a lot of attorneys today. Overall, I think she is not only a very good attorney, but a good person which is rare these days.

My fiance and I have been through a terrible custody dispute over the past few years. We have been through several attorneys all of which were...unattentive and unprepared to say the least. I searched for a new attorney for over 6 months all over the Tampa Bay area (using Avvo religiously for recommendations) and I found Amy.
She has been a God-send from the beginning. Answering all questions, keeping us informed throughout the process, replying to communication always within 24 hours, usually less. Amy has literally sent e-mails at 3, 4, 5 in the morning. She is very technologically savvy, so you can text her, e-mail, fax, even instant message!
In court, she has a commanding presence and gets things accomplished! If you're looking for an attorney who knows how to present a case, she's it.
Her fees do not do her justice at all-she is the cheapest attorney I have ever found and her billing is INCREDIBLY fair. Even the retainer was the cheapest I've ever heard of. We have all heard the expression, "You get what you pay for", but Amy breaks that standard completely. She's not a money-hungry attorney who needs to pay for the country club membership and those God-awful student loans that most attorneys have. She has a HEART and when you're going through a divorce or dealing with any legal matter, it can get overwhelming. You NEED someone like this in your life. An attorney who listens and then can get you a game plan in record time. She will pursue your interests aggressively, ethically, and as quickly as possible.
The Florida Bar requires that attorneys represent their clients "with zeal"-Amy has absolutely taken this to heart. If your current attorney is not handling your case "with zeal", CALL AMY!
I'm really not sure what else I can say to convince you, but If you are looking for an honest, dependable, CARING attorney-look no further. Call her NOW!
