Amy was the guardian ad litem on a case I had in DuPage County. Amy did an excellent job as the guardian ad litem. She was strong, zealous, well-prepared, intelligent, and cared strongly about the minor child involved in the case. I would strongly recommend her both as a family law practitioner or as a guardian ad litem.
