I'm still shocked on the terrible representation that I recieved from this attorney. I don't even know where to start!
She's definitely more concern on charging billable hours than actually doing her job and having her clients best interest. My case was as easy as they come.
She calls me a day before my hearing saying that I had nothing to worry about. That the judge was going to follow the recommendation of the mediator, which was in my favor, and it would be impossible for the judge to order my daughter to attend a private school or for me to pay for that.
Well, come the day of the hearing and she's late! The hearing was at 9am and she walks in at 8:57am. She told me the day before to meet her 15 minutes before the hearing to go over my case. She stubbled through the opening statement unprepared, writing notes the whole time and what's worst, she fails to present crucial evidence to the court!
Needless to say, she lost my case. I lost full physical custody of my little girl and paying a private school. When I called her the next day to asked her why she failed to do what I had hired her to do... All she could say was "sorry" and that we can come back to court and present the evidence she failed to present this time. Meaning... more billable hours!
She still has the nerve to send me a bill, after she exhausted my retainer and what the court had granted her. You are better of representing yourself than hiring this attorney.

Amy did a great job of representing me. She did a good job of explaining the options and probable outcome. I would recommend Amy to anyone looking for Family Lawyer.

I'm not really happy with what I got out of it. I believe Attorneys should do what's best for their clients interest. My sense now that it's over I feel this attorney generated as many chargable hours as possible on a trial that she well knew she could never win.
The day before the trial, she asked to meet me to go over everything and basically told me if I tell the truth we will lose. I had so many opportunities to settle without going to trial and all she said was we can do better in court.
