Domestic Case
I hired Amy Fairfield with Fairfield and Associates for a very difficult case. She has done what others could not. She is professional, smart and kept me informed on a regular basis. He staff of attorneys and assistants worked as a team and it was clear they were working as a team for my case. Not all lawyers are equal, and I’ve had a few over the years. Amy will tell you like it is, straight up, and won’t tell you what you want to hear with empty promises. She is strategic and once in court, she is simply the best. You will be glad to have her on your side. She is simply one of Maine’s best attorneys.

Amy saved my life!!!
Amy went above and beyond during my case. She hired private detectives, spent countless hours interviewing witnesses, made sure my family was protected from the media, made trips to the state crime lab in augusta, brought on a second lawyer from her firm for my trial, but more than all that, she believed in me when no one else would! I owe her everything and that's not something I will ever forget aslong as I live. Thank you amy!!!!

Excellent attorney
Amy helped us through a very trying criminal case. Her abundant knowledge and experience was extremely helpful during this difficult process. She worked meticulously to prove the facts which lead to an acquittal at trial. I would definitely recommend her as she is an excellent attorney!

Phenomenal Maine lawyer
Amy was attentive and thorough and she is an excellent attorney. She paid attention to every detail in my case. It was like watching a wizard in the court room. She is great in trial.

Family Matter Case
Amy has represented me in approximately the past four years in my family matter case. I have been nothing less than impressed with Amy's diligence, professionalism and knowledge. I have had another attorney in the past, and now know that I would never feel comfortable with anyone else representing me. Amy has proven to be dedicated and extremely knowledgeable putting forth her absolute best effort in every aspect of my case. Amy's Courtroom presence is impressive & I can attest that you would not be disappointed if you chose Amy to represent you, especially when it matters most.

BEST Legal Team
IV had numerous attorneys over the years and Amy Fairfield is by far the best!! I was falsely charged with serious felony crimes and was wanted by the police. Amy worked my alibis n the entire case from out of state on a weekend and arranged my surrender on a Sunday and she had proof in front of the judge monday. I disagree with the previous review of her bein more concerned with getting paid.. She took my case with no money, indigent circumstances, went above and beyond for me, and proved my innocence. Amy is an amazing attorney, and I'll always recommend her...

Condescending
I was detained at York County overnight and she was lawyer of the day for court the next day. Thank god I had called my own lawyer the night before on Intake. She tried to knock my lawyer and the amount that I paid for him (first of all, none of her business to be asking anyway) then she proceeded to call me naive (rude), and then asked how much money I had for bail. She then told me that it was likely I would be transferred to Cumberland county for my additional outstanding warrant. The lawyer that I apparently paid too much for then managed to get me out on PR bail (ie $0) and keep me from having to be transferred and spend another night in jail by working out a deal with the Cumberland county DA and having my paperwork sent from Cumberland county to York county. Amys plan would certainly have had me spending another night in jail and paying out bail money.

Would NOT hire her again, or recommend her
I hired Amy Fairfield for a child custody case. Amy's only interest was to expedite the process and collect as much money for doing so as possible. After three court appearances and one mediation I am no further in the process than when we started. Amy is difficult to have a conversation with, she doesn't listen to your wants or needs, and all the times I met with her and she appeared in court on my behalf she was disheveled and distracted by something other than my case.

Attorney Who Will Abandon A Case Quickly
She abandon my criminal case and refused to keep me informed or to go over my case. She has to many cases and not enough time to properly deal with each case. She said she couldn`t give legal advise until she got the Discovery but then refused to go over my case with me. She wont respond to clents mail. I feel just because i had to contact the Bar on her she clearly retaliated and withdrew from my case. My family and I did everything Ms. Fairfield told us to do then refused to go over my case with me. She left motions pending and would not follow through with them. She even messed up my bail reduction with Maine Pretrail. I guess uf shewants to take your case she will do it but she seems to side with the State most of the time and wont fight if she is court appointed.

Not a good experience.
I hired Amy Fairfield to represent me for a child custody case. She was too friendly with my ex's attorney. She was trying to get me to agree on certain points I was against saying I'd never get granted which didn't work for me. I did the rest of the case by myself. I won my case by myself. This attorney was more concerned about being paid for the services she was not providing than she was concerned about what you are actually seeking for an outcome.
