I was working with a lawyer whom although we had a good relationship, due to certain circumstances he felt I might be better represented by someone else. I was hesitant and expressed my concerns about transitioning to a different attorney, especially during a trial. He stated he had been careful and very selective, pledging he had the perfect lawyer to take over my case. Anytime an attorney can refer you to another attorney, stating they would seek the same representation for a member of their own family, you should expect the result will be someone extremely well practiced and highly qualified. His advice led me to Kristen Amonette, a family law litigator and mediator, whom I must say was exactly who I needed in my corner. Mrs. Amonette immediately leveled the playing field, was quickly able to pick up on where we needed to be and she easily got us there. With that said, I welcome the opportunity to brag on Kristen Amonette any chance I can find. I believe her to be one of the most professional, yet personal lawyers I could have ever expected to have found on my own. Now maybe with my review, I can one to help lead others to her as well.
The first thing I noted was Kristen Amonette entered the room exuding confidence, but without arrogance. She constantly gave me all of her energy, her time and attention. Very observant and nurturing, she listened well and was incredibly reassuring to meet my needs. She was focused and not afraid of a challenge, giving me solid advice and being truthful about my options. Mrs. Amonette was tremendously diligent in applying herself to her work, very well prepared and nicely organized. She acted as any true professional, although I found she was also a devoted wife and beautiful mother of two. This part was particularly important to me because it meant balance, definitely the stability and consistency I was craving during such a time of raw insecurity. Mrs. Amonette was involved, possessed loyalty and dedication as the greatest attorney (as the greatest wife and mother) anyone could desire. She was patient but persistent and strong while still understanding and sympathetic of the situation. She had the ability to be aggressive and domineering of the court room, yet she was respectful of the legal system and civil with her cross representation. I never felt alone during a very lonely time, for the reason I knew she was committed to my best interest and working wholeheartedly toward a shared goal.
I love Kristen Amonette, as well as my family and friends love her. We all have so much respect and gratitude for what she has provided us. I feel honored to have had her by her side, because she has self built her reputation and earned her own success.

Thank you for the opportunity to offer my support and recommendation for the legal services of Kristen Amonette. I very much appreciated Kristen's professionalism and expertise to treat my proceedings seriously, impartially, and discretely--with respect to ALL involved parties. She was always communicative, informative, and intent on making sure my understanding was clear on all options. She was fair to--and respectful of--the process by making every effort to seek the resolution that was most beneficial and least costly to me. Her goal was for me to get to the most successful end, in the most expeditious and efficient manner.
Kristen remained completely abreast of each step/nuance of my case, aggressive in her representation of my concerns, and cognizant of my position (whether it strengthened or weakened) on certain issues to the conclusion of all litigation.
A few of the many things I appreciated most about Kristen, was her:
---professional-discipline to keep me and the proceedings on-task / focused,
---interpersonal skills that gave her the ability to connect with the both the court and the opposition,
---commitment to the case in the fulfillment of her responsibilities (I always felt like her priority), and
---analytical ability to quickly assess a situation/challenge and formulate the appropriate action/response leading to a desired outcome.
Kristen always exhibited: a "can do" approach to my concerns, and the ability to put me at ease amidst a very stressful time in my life. I not only would--but have--recommended her, and will continue to do so. If I EVER have any other need for legal services, she IS MY ATTORNEY!! I am more than happy to represent for her, just as she represented me.
