Amy served as my attorney for the original divorce as well as for additional modifications to the decree.
My top ten list of what I most like about Amy:
1) Amy is highly knowledgeable about all aspects of family law.
2) She takes the high road and urges her clients to do the same for the best interests of the children.
3) Amy follows through and gets paperwork done in a timely manner.
4) She treats clients and everyone else involved in a respectful and non-condescending manner.
5) She realizes divorce is a death and respects the grief process that her clients and their children are going through.
6) She actually responds to phone calls and emails in a timely manner and never leaves you hanging.
7) She is tough in a classy way when the situation demands it (in the courtroom or out of it).
8) She does not over-bill clients for services.
9)Amy helps you set realistic expectations about negotiating with the other party.
10)I have referred friends as well as my own clients to Amy and she has given everyone great service.
Amy did a wonderful job of making my divorce as painless as possible. She was able to fight for me and my child when I could not. I would highly recommend her.
Amy Montgomery represented me in my divorce, modification and adoption. Her professionalism was above and beyond anything I could have imagined. The divorce was very cut and dry so when I filed for a modification, I decided to hire another attorney in town. That was a mistake. I was not pleased with his performance and I went back to Amy. She took care of everything. My husband and I recently adopted a little girl and Amy handled everything beautifully. Not only is Amy a well educated and knowledgeable attorney, her compassion and honestly are amazing. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mrs. Montgomery for any type of family law matter that you may be going through.
The last year of my life has been a living hell! Amy, and the staff that she works with, have been a small piece of heaven. Amy first and formost gave me sound legal advice, which is what I paid her to do!!. This does not mean she always told me what I wanted to hear, this was a DIVORCE!! I felt totally informed on every decision that was made. If you put all the legal and formal issues to the side I can say I felt 100% that Amy cared. My feelings were that the kids came first with every decision and after that I wanted to be treated fairly. Amy totally agreed and we moved forward with this goal. We fought and struggled thru every issue with a common focus. Sometimes I think she was fighting with me but that's what I was paying her to do. Anything less and she would have been stealing my money with faulty service. Over the last year Amy has been my lawyer, my counselor, my therapist, my adviser but most of all, I can call Amy my friend!! I will go back to her in a heartbeat!! Amy, I hope I never HAVE to see you again but I hope I GET to see you often!!
Amy made things worse with my ex-husband by fighting over stuff that just didn't matter. I clearly told her what I wanted and what I was concerned with, and she ignored me. When we got to court, the judge was very irritated with her and Amy did not know what to do. Now my ex-husband has the kids more time and pays less child support. It was a disaster!
