Helped me through a difficult divorce
Amy Huff-Harris helped me through a difficult divorce. She was professional and really focused on sticking up for my rights. She kept in mind what was good for my kids throughout the process. I am happy with the settlement that she and her team negotiated.

Great Service
Good leadership starts at the top, and this is exemplified by the LH&H family, from Amy down. Just knowing I had Amy on my side, who constantly fought on my behalf, set my mind at ease during a difficult time in my life.

We couldn't have done it without her
We were so happy to find a law office that believed in us and stood with us after we needed counsel in a guardianship case. We cannot say enough about Amy and her team. Kind, compassionate, knowledgeable and trustworthy.

Amazing Representation
Amy Huff-Harris did what every other attorney said was impossible. I battled in court with my abusive, controlling ex-husband for 7 years over visitation, child support etc. I did everything short of begging the judge to get her to understand how dire our situation was to no avail. When I remarried, to an enlisted Navy man, my husband and I realized that we needed to hire an attorney if we were going to be able to be free, to keep myself and my son safe and stay together for the next 9 years of his military career. With a military relocation quickly approaching Amy and her team worked tirelessly to get the results we needed. I did endless research about relocating a child out of the state of Massachusetts and what I found was bleak but Amy never hesitated, she knew exactly how to win. It was a long battle, to say the least, and we did end up going to trial. Amy was very methodical about her process. She knew exactly what to bring to the judge and what to leave out. She and her team prepped me well and she left no stone unturned. Before I hired Amy, my son and I lived in fear everyday and now we are free and safe with a multiple year restraining order against my ex. We now live with my amazing husband in a new state because of her and we are no longer living in fear. We are forever grateful. I honestly can’t say enough, she’s amazing.

Best Divorce attorney in Boston
Amy is like a sweet fairy with court accepted brutality that will leave no way for the opposing party but to succumb to reason and fairness. She’s got her feet rooted in justice and will not budge an inch without getting you complete and reasonable justice. BTW, Amy’s got a fantastic team. Prompt and very helpful. All this sort of exceptional service might sound too good to come without a heavy price tag. I might have been fortunate to obtain all this while earning a very moderate income. Look no further! If you are looking for a divorce attorney, go hire Amy before your spouse does! She is prompt, experienced, highly knowledgeable, and eloquent. She will pour into the details of the case, and learn it to such an extent that she will know it better than yourself. Once you hire her, and give her all the necessary details, you can relax and be the passenger on her ship. Amy and her crew will guide you through the turbulent waters till you get the justice, settlement agreement and divorce that you deserve.

Custody case
I hired Amy and her colleagues to help me gain full custody of my son last year. Amy and Elizabeth worked very hard to prepare a well thought out and solid case to present to the courts for me. I was very impressed with the effort and even more satisfied with the outcome. Amy and Liz brought me confidence and peace of mind In this stressful point in my life. I have recently retained her services again and I do not doubt the outcome will be favorable.

A brilliant lawyer : Trustworthy, Honest and Professional
I would like to start with the words trustworthy, honest, and professional to describe my divorce attorney.Amy took the time and listened to my case, understood where I was coming from, and designed a strategy based on her experience. Amy walked me through the process and there was not even one moment that I felt alone. She was always there step by step. The main thing is that Amy always kept me updated on our litigation and made recommendations that factored in cost-effectiveness. At the end of the day, I always felt I knew where I stood. Going through divorce is difficult and a brilliant lawyer can make it a bit easier. For that I could rely on Amy!

Amy fights for you
My ex was trying to pay me far less of the equity that I was due from our house per our divorce agreement. Amy reviewed the agreement, did the math (correctly), and fought back hard, ultimately winning me more than 10 times what her services cost me. I got from Amy what I was looking for from my ex: a fair deal.

Custody Battles
Thanks to Ms Amy and Ms Karen, gave me a chance to be a dad with my daughter. Ms. Amy fought very hard and was very quick with great results. I appreciate everything they've done for me and my family. Thank you again, you was awesome!

A great family law attorney
Ms. Huff-Harris handled my somewhat drawn-out divorce case with the utmost professionalism and care. Although my case was fairly simple, I feel that I was always treated as an important client. She was well-organized and made sure that all of my financial documents were in perfect order prior to all meetings and especially prior to my court date. I could not be happier with the level of service given, attention received or outcome of my case.

a great and unbelievable attorney.
If you are being pushed around by your ex, Amy Huff Harris is the attorney you go. Many years of being represented by money hungry attorneys who do half ass job, until I met Amy.

Passionate Client Advocate with Integrity and Dedication
Amy Huff-Harris is an honest and hard-working attorney, who passionately advocated for me, and thanks to her efforts, I now have decent parenting time with my daughter. During my initial consultation with Attorney Huff-Harris, she provided me a realistic assessment of my case, including due consideration that I was a non-US citizen and a non-Massachusetts resident, and that I was already seriously disadvantaged due to poor advocacy by my previous attorney. She was very knowledgeable about MA family law, had the welfare of my daughter foremost in mind, and she promised to do her very best to help me gain parenting time with my daughter. During the course of my case, which lasted nearly 3 years, I had the opportunity to observe Attorney Harris in action, and found her to be a genuine and kind-hearted person, who is fair and equitable, with a passion to help her clients navigate through some of the most difficult times of their lives. Attorney Huff-Harris is not only an experienced family law professional with an intimate knowledge of MA laws, she is strategic in her thinking and passionate in her client-advocacy; her motions are well-written and her defense-presentation is top-notch. During presentations before the court, Attorney Huff-Harris’ quick-thinking and her rebuttal questioning on the opposing counsel's presentation, exposed the dishonesty in his presentation. It is my considered opinion that the American Legal System (where you are just another case number that needs to be disposed-off as quickly as possible) is neither just nor equitable, and where the more clever voice typically wins, Attorney Huff-Harris’ advocacy prevented me from being a total victim of what one may otherwise consider a ruthless system. In a profession that is often dominated by disingenuous professionals (I’m referring to those who have no qualms about lying, or doing deceitful things to win a case), Attorney Huff-Harris' integrity and faithful client-advocacy provided me a chance at an equitable settlement. I whole-heartedly recommend Attorney Amy Huff-Harris to anyone who is seeking a Massachusetts family-law expert to passionately advocate on your behalf.

Outstanding Attorney
An attorney with great professional abilities, thorough, responsive and genuinely interested in resolving her client's problems (as she did in my case, after going through five other attorneys in four years). Attorney Amy Huff Harris is my hero!

tom a divorce client
I was married for 20 years and when my wife initially filed for divorce my goal was to find a lawyer who will work with me on my rights as a parent. I came across Amy's name and met with her. From the beginning I found Amy to be fair, very knowledgeable and most importantly wanting to get what was right for my children. My divorce proceedings were at times very acrimonious and throughout all the tensions Amy was level headed, never asking the other party for outlandish things and she very much had a solid understanding of the courts and the judges view. Amy was very honest and open with me and guided me through the whole process. I wanted equal custody of our children and since their were no circumstances that would prohibit me from having that I felt it was the only fair thing for me and the kids. Amy felt the same way and doggedly worked to get that. I was initially awarded full custody of the kids and that was because how Amy worked with me but it the end both parents did deserve to share equal custody. Everything she told me and how to act was with a purpose and that was how I was viewed by the court. Amy was tough and fair in court. In the end I got what I wanted, equal custody of our kids and the negotiated deal to keep the house. I cannot have done without Amy's expertise. I have recommended Amy to other people and I will say this to any parent who is starting to go thru the divorce process: before making any rash decision contact Amy. She will listen and properly advise you on your path. I was very lucky to have Amy as my attorney.

Great Divorce Attorney
Ms. Huff is a true professional in every way. She was reliable, knowledgeable and caring about my needs. She genuinely cared about my welfare and fought hard for a palatable solution to an otherwise unpleasant and highly volatile legal proceeding. Divorces are never pleasant, but Ms. Huff shielded me from the unpleasantries and kept me focused on the overall goal and objectives for an amicable divorce. As a result, my divorce was event and hassle free. I would recommend Ms. Huff to anyone going through a divorce. She will be a very good advocate for you and will fight for your rights to a fair and equitable dissolution of your marriage.

A Diligent and Trustworthy Attorney
I asked Amy to take over my case from another lawyer with whom I was not satisfied. My previous attorney had let me down hard during the first court hearing, twisting my arm to accept terms of a bad agreement and giving me no encouragement that I might be able to obtain a better agreement. I had not won out on a single issue and I came away with an agreement that was unfair to me and did not take my son’s best interest into account. Amy changed all that. She dug me out of the hole my prior attorney had put me in and got an agreement that is fair to me and more importantly to my son. From the moment of our first conversation she was positive and upbeat. She knew immediately that something was fundamentally wrong with the agreement my prior attorney had negotiated and she had a plan to fix it. The more I worked with Amy the more impressed I was with her dedication to her clients. She would often work on my case during weekends and late nights, sending me e-mails or telephone calls. Ultimately, I trusted her not to allow me or my son to be railroaded by the system. She did not let me down. I can’t thank her enough and I highly recommend her without any reservations.

Endorse Amy
Family Attorney | Sep 02
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Attorney Huff Harris to be an exemplary family law practitioner--someone who fights tooth and nail for her clients. Attorney Huff Harris is very knowledgeable and highly skilled in negotiating and trying issues involving custody, child support, alimony, property division, contempt, modifications, and many other legal enclaves. You will also find her fees to be extremely reasonable compared to others in the industry with comparable experience. It is clearly important to Amy that regular folks are able to afford a quality attorney's services. Finally, her value is also realized in her ability to provide sound practical advice to her clients. Amy often resolves client conflicts by crafting creative solutions which she carefully weighs so to protect her clients, their loved ones, and their wallet."
Family Attorney | Dec 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Amy is exactly what I would look for as an attorney for myself; honest, dependable, hardworking, to name only a few. She is professional yet passionate and will pursue a course of resolution despite innumerable challenges. I heartily endorse Amy as an excellent choice for anyone's family law attorney."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Nov 11
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I opposed Amy on one of her first cases. I thought her to be fair yet zealous in representing her client. Subsequently I have had occassion to discuss cases with her and I am impressed with her dedication and professionalism. She can evaluate a case realistically and represent her client's interests vigorously."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Nov 10
Relationship: Co-worker
"When I first met Amy Huff, she spoke of how passionate she is towards "fathers' rights." While it sounded good in theory, I had not seen the action behind those words. Now, almost a full year later, I can tell you that Amy Huff is the LAST LAWYER I would want on the other side of a case. While she is reasonable and insists on nothing less than a 50-50 settlement, when she doesn't get what she wants, she has such a ferocious reputation in court that we've heard that she is known as "Jaws" in the different courtrooms in Mass. -- especially when she represents fathers."
Family Attorney | Nov 09
Relationship: Friend
"I am pleased to endorse Amy Huff as an excellent attorney. Amy is both intelligent and compassionate and her advocacy for her clients and professionalism with other counsel are top notch."
