This wasn't our first time at the out-of-state adoption rodeo. Coming from a horrible experience with a Georgia attorney, we had to lower our expectations for the adoption of our second child. Even if I had crazy high expectations, Amber and her team absolutely met them. She was "on top" of everything so much, I didn't get to even ask questions like, "Where are we in this process." In fact, when we were clearing ICPC, I was watching the FedEx package to my state. They had it tracked and reported before I could even refresh my browser.
At surrender time, she was on time and available. I can't go into enough how perfect this entire process was. She knows her stuff. She knows how to communicate. She's personable. She has an excellent staff. I recommend Amber James with zero reservations.
Ms. James and her staff were kind and generous with me during the most harrowing period of my life. The firm is growing and that is a testament to their skill and kindness. The growing pains mean they have been too busy at times. Hopefully, that will settle down soon. Ms. James is a very qualified and knowledgeable lawyer, and a person of high integrity.
Amber and the James Family Law Firm have went above and beyond in the hadling of my case. I am a single father fighting for custody of my daughter. As many know this is an uphill battle. They have always been extremely prompt at returning phone calls and emails. I was very well informed of every action taken and all possible outcomes of those actions. They have been very flexible with my billing options due to the duration and complexity of my case. All of this is what you get outside of the courtroom, Amber and her staff are even more efficient inside the courtroom. They have been able to defend any and all false allegations made by my ex, and prove beyond doubt her actions. Amber and the memebers of her firm are very efficient and aggressive in the courtroom, but they are also ethical. They will not use anything they cannot prove or do not have evidence to support.
After receiving threats from my ex and finding out she was in town, Amber gave me her personal cell phone number so I could contact her directly in the event of trouble. Amber and her law firm have always made me feel like they were personally invested in my case, I have never once felt like I was just a client or they were just doing their job.
Amber represented me in a very professional manner. She consistently presented me with multiple options concerning how to approach my particular case with her personal recommendation. Even when we disagreed due to my emotions, she was understanding and presented her viewpoint in an unbiased manner.
Amber is involved in many community political activities which keeps her abreast of current trends as well as helping to shape the judicial system into a more efficient organization.
Ms. James handled my custody/child support case in Morgan County from out of state. I’d lived in another state for years before my divorce was finalized and my previous attorney let me settle with my ex as if I also lived in Morgan Co, I didn’t realize the ramifications of this until after the divorce. Ms. James was very helpful and able to get my visitation schedule modified appropriately and fairly including making it mandatory for my ex to meet with the children versus me baring the burden of all the driving every other weekend. She's always been accommodating and reachable via phone or e-mail and makes time for me when I'm in town to review or prepare my case.
Where Ms. James really shines is in the court room. You can tell that she is well respected by the other attorneys and Judges. She knows how to handle herself and represent her client well. If you’re seeking assistance in family law I would recommend Amber James and James Family Law without hesitation! I know she'll be my first choice when we have to go back to court.
