Disputes within the family are hard. Many of my clients are amidst the most trying times of their life, and faced with so many crucial decisions, it is important to have someone by your side who is really listening. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, and I work tirelessly not only to advise my clients as to what their options are in the moment, but also what impact these choices may have moving forward. What the next chapter looks like is entirely up to you, and I promise to do everything in my power to get you there.

THE BEST ATTORNEY
I hired Amanda to help me with a very complicated divorce/ custody case and she worked very hard for me. She gave me attention when times were hard. She fought for my rights. In the end she was able to win. Because of Amanda, today I have my rights restored and I am very grateful.

Amazing
Amanda was nothing short of amazing. I recently went through a divorce and literally had no idea what I was doing. Not only was she patient with me, she walked me through the whole process and even provided some emotional support when needed. I would recommend her to anyone going through something as stressful as this.

Attorney Parsons
A phenomenal attorney with the skill set to adapt and persevere through any challenge. When things were looking down for me regarding a restraining order, and custody case, Attorney Parsons wasn't just there for me with excellent legal counsel, but her humility, understanding, patience, and genuine encouragement went above and beyond, and meant everything to me. I highly recommend attorney Parsons!

Attorney Parsons
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The only part of the divorce process I will miss are my interactions with Amanda. She balances humility for the challenging and personal circumstances of divorce with reassurance and an excellent understanding of the law. She is able to successfully balance the application of the law with real life families and dynamics. She brings a drive and ability to think outside the normal procedures to achieve the best results for her clients. Amanda has the ability to quickly and accurately asses a situation and adapt in court and an honesty that is difficult to find in representation. I would trust her to represent any of my family or friends.

Very happy with Amanda as my Attorney
My divorce was little bit complicated due to a fact that I am not US citizen and immigration implications made this case quite unique. I was impressed that Amanda was aware of many aspect of immigration law and helped me to guide my divorce in accordance with US immigration rules. I was also very happy that she was able to negotiate the financial settlement that was better than I expected. This is not an Attorney who handles all cases the same; she actually took a time and looked at my situation from many angles and chose the best strategy. I have to thank Amanda very much and will hire her again if my ex-husband stops paying financial support etc. I can only highly recommend her.

Wonderful Attorney!
I went through my divorce about two years ago. She was there for me step by step. I consulted with other attorneys before her and they were no help at all. Thank god a friend of mine recommended her. She is the best attorney. She actually cares. If anyone is looking for an attorney, select Amanda, you will be making the right choice.

Outstanding customer service
Amanda handled my court modification for custody/support following a failed mediation situation with my ex-wife. Amanda was extremely professional and supportive through a difficult situation. She was diligent and hands-on with my case. I greatly appreciated the fact that she always told me what was right, as opposed to what I wanted to hear. She faced many obstacles without budging or ever backing down. Amanda always strived to meet the best interests not only for me, but my children and second wife. In the end, she negotiated a much better deal than what was proposed in mediation. Lastly, I always felt that I was Amanda's sole client...she responded quickly and constantly kept me updated and on track. I have recommended Amanda to several people.

Very happy with Amanda
Amanda worked on my divorce with another lawyer from her firm and I was very impressed. Amanda was accessible any time I needed to talk to her. I always felt she gave 100% and fought hard for me. For example, we were going in to court to finalize the divorce agreement and opposing counsel said they were not going to enter the agreement and wanted it changed. Amanda stood her ground and argued for me and was able to get the opposing side to back down from changing the agreement. Amanda listened to what I wanted out of this divorce and was able to get the agreement that I wanted. I would highly recommend her.

Hire her. You'll be glad you did.
Amada Parsons took over my divorce case after another attorney’s major mishaps and neglect left me in the path of financial ruin. She has been my attorney for the last 18 months throughout a very contentious divorce and several complicated contempt hearings with my ex-husband. Her counsel and strategy has resulted in more wins than I could ever have expected. She has crafted several creative Plan Bs as she is quick thinking, sharp and intent on the strategy being in my best interest. Amanda is extremely thorough in her court preparations and it has paid off. She has been relentless in her dealings with the Suffolk County Probate Court, which can be extremely challenging. Not only is she knowledgeable, responsive and reliable, she truly cares. I absolutely recommend her legal services. She is an outstanding professional who produces results.

Exceptional service from Amanda Parsons
Amanda Parsons was one of the most communicative lawyers I have met with. I was always able to get into contact with her. She did a great job with advising me & providing me with a sense of security about my case. Amanda was well prepared for court and made sure she knew every detail about my case that was necessary. My best interests were definitely met and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone dealing with family court matters.

Highly Recommended
Amanda went above and beyond. She listened carefully to my legal woes, explained the process in a way that made sense to me and I had complete confidence that every move she made was entirely in my best interests. You can tell she cares about her clients in a way that you won't find often with other attorneys. She was always completely prepared and well-spoken when advocating on my behalf. I'd recommend her time and again.

What went wrong
Amanda was my attorney for 2 years representing me in a very difficult high asset divorce. I am a victim of emotional financial and physical abuse Followed her advice , I am now divorced with nothing . No alimony no money from 40 year marriage . Am wondering howIam going to live. Ex husband sold company for a lot of money of which I GOT NOT A PENNY! Hired really horrible unqualified forensic accounts who were suppose to be Certified Divorce Forensic Accounts. Did no do their job . Ex husband embezzled thousands and thousands of dollars. He was not even deposed! not once in 2 years. !!! She was in over her head and would not seek help. I have been told by many divorce Attorneys she did not do her job . 10's of thousands of dollars later my husband has not given me a dime ! Also she QUIT at a most inopportune time because I believe she cannot take constructive criticism, a big flaw. Left me hanging Husbands Attorney crushed us . she needed help was not experienced enough, I begged her to get support. Worse: we were suppose to go to trial , Discovery closed I was not told ! He is a drug addict !!! WTF. BUT I believe she tried and worse feeling I licked her a lot. She is a good person just not good for this case.I have been told by other attorney s " I got screwed" Simple divorce probably awesome
