Amy Neiman pretended to care about the best interest of our child, then 12 years old. We soon realized it was all about "The System" & The Money Scam that goes along with it. They have mastered the art of keeping the parents at each others throats to insure that the cases continue for months, and then the months turn into years...WHY ?...IN MY OPINION: MONEY ! They all benefit from the cases that have the most conflict. A NO MONEY & NO PROPERTY to divide DIVORCE agreement .. Turned into A DCFS CASE from hell.
Mrs.Neiman, WAS COURT APPOINTED because the father & I did not agree on custody. We thought we had no choice in regards to her....but we later found out that WE DID !! My former husband & I finally agreed on one thing: It was time to get rid of AMY NEIMAN !
SHE BALL FACE LIED TO THE JUDGE on several occassions creating a MAJOR BATTLE between "US" the parents. How and why is this Woman representing CHILDREN ? ..The type of LAW that she studied has nothing to do with FAMILY LAW, Let Alone CHILDREN!
I read on line that: Amy Neiman was "The Most Dangerous Child Appointed Attorney In America"...
& "In My Opinion" THAT IS TRUE.
When a child points out , that the Attorney that he is supposed to put his trust in...IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH, In the Courtroom...Over & Over again.....WE HAVE A PROBLEM.
He described her attempts to have him say things that he did not want to say...At 15 years old, he remembers the ways she tried to get him to lie about one parent or the other by twisting his words, or speaking on his behalf when he was not there.. AND THE DAY THAT HE WAS GIVEN THE CHOICE...Asked the Question "If he could only choose ONE parent to live with, Who Would That Be ?.... AMY NEIMAN, LIED TO THE JUDGE AND TOLD HIM THAT MY SON CHOSE THE "OTHER" PARENT !
DO WHAT EVER YOU HAVE TO DO, To work out your custody issues, so that you will not have this woman brought into your case. "That is when they take over & basically own you".
She has several other complaints & cases just like ours: DO YOUR HOMEWORK: Research HER on line. The Law suits being brought against her. BECAUSE: THERE IS NO REASON FOR HER BEHAVIOR.... IF SHE IS "Court Appointed" YOU MUST AGREE TO HAVE HER REMOVED & If both parents agree...She will be removed ! Otherwise plan on a long ride straight to hell !
SHE, Amy Neiman.. Actually told the Courts that she was in my home, and witnessed crazy things....SHE NEVER, NEVER, EVER set foot in my home or called to ask to see our home......SHE MADE THE WHOLE THING UP.... And we dont even really know why ?
It was just sick ! A Nightmare from Hell & A True Horror Story that I will Soon be able to share with the world. We can only PRAY for this person.... and SPEAK UP to let others know of our experience in the hopes that we might save some other family from her evil.
SHE WROTE ALL ABOUT THE INSIDE OF MY HOME, But in person could not back up her statements....SHE EVEN WROTE DOWN THE COLOR OF MY CURTAINS in her statement to the courts... And we had photos & witnesses proving that she was never there.....WOW...
IN PERSON< IN THE COURTROOM.. When she was asked, by me..... to describe just the main room in the home, SHE COULD NOT DO SO ..
She was fired from our case that day.
Everyone in that courtroom knew, THE JUDGE Himself knew,
That she had been telling lies, and she was asked to leave the courtroom !
She did not fight the decision, and said that: The mother and herself never did see eye to eye !
YA THINK ! And then quietly left the building..... She never expected my husband to side with ME ! But he could no longer allow her to mess with our sons mind! At this stage of the game, she was only hurting our son..... and we were able to come together for our Son, and call it quits on the fighting !
TRUTH IS EVERYTHING.... And the TRUTH Is: Amy Neiman, Has NO BUSINESS being a Court Appointed Attorney for any child.. EVER..EVER..EVER !
If Amy Neiman is your child's court appointed attorney...your in big trouble. All the bad stuff you read below and in other reviews are absolutely true. She does not care about reconciliation, families or common decency . What matters first is money ( she will ask you for income information and have you account frozen..You get to pay for her services!!!. What can you do??..1. don't trust her 2. make sure you have a good lawyer that wont be pushed around by Amy, don"t hire base on money. Find lawyer who has worked in that judges court. Not hard to find. 3. don't be afraid to speak up in court because she tend to quarterback the hearing. 4. prepare for the worse. What amazes me it that she had a wonderful opportunity to settle the matter after my daughter said she wanted to come home instead of in protective custody...and Amy told judge no. Last time i saw my daughter, it's been almost a year.
Amy was my attorney in a difficult divorce involving a husband with severe mental illness. She advocated strongly for custody arrangements that protected my child from exposure to his ongoing dangerous behavior. She explained court processes and document preparation clearly. This helped in a significant way with what was a terrible situation.
This attorney has an incredible amount of knowledge and was a joy to work with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a divorce or custody issues.
With YEARS of experience in many areas of Law, I have yet to bear witness to a more dishonorable and harmful family law practitioner. Ms. Neiman represents my children [refuses to recuse herself] and many other' children here in the Los Angeles area. Amy L. Neiman is one attorney to avoid. You stand to be taxed without representation. Do NOT stipulate to having this lawyer represent you or your children. Honorable Courts need to be maintained as just that, Honorable. Unfortunately, "no stars" was not a choice above.
If you have children, be ware. She brings her personal problems to her cases and your kids will bear the burden.
Attorney Amy Neiman provided invaluable assistance in my painful divorce from my husband of 25+ years. She is very smart, knowledgeable about the law, fair, tough when she needs to be, and honest in her billing practices. She is also easy to reach by telephone and responds promptly to inquiries.
