    I endorse this lawyer.I have worked on several cases with Ms Amaro. She has always responded promptly. She has been invaluable in obtaining medical documentation and opinion letters which successfully resolved the cases. She is very adaptable and quickly researches and educates herself in legal areas outside of her main practice areas. She is both compassionate and very professional

Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public Reprimand and Probation
    issued in ID, 2009

    updated

    Reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. While on probation, the State monitors the attorney's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Rami’s comment: “This involved a former client who was fired from her job after she engaged in misconduct. She blamed me as I had asked that the bank remove her access to my accounts due to her unstable behavior. I chose not to appeal the initial appeal decision by the bar - although I strenuously disagree with it.”

  2. Reprimand
    issued in WA, 2009

    updated

    This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Rami’s comment: “This is the same matter - but reciprocal discipline by another state (required). This involved a former client who was fired from her job after she engaged in misconduct. She blamed me as I had asked that the bank remove her access to my accounts due to her unstable behavior. I chose not to appeal the initial appeal decision by the bar - although I strenuously disagree with it.”
